The Basset Hound Club

The Basset Hound Club exists for the betterment of the breed and to provide activities for members and their hounds to meet on a fun, social basis. The club runs annual shows and other NZKC sanctioned events. Currently a new committee (2019) has been elected which covers the country and we meet on a regular basis to organise and plan events and to discuss other issues which affect our breed. We love to welcome new members and invite you to get in touch with our Club Secretary or our Wellington Branch Secretary.

The Basset Hound Club does have a Rescue fund available (thankfully we do not have many Bassets in need) however please contact us if there is a Basset in need of our help. 

You can also find us on New Zealand Basset Hound Club (INC) on Facebook. We love to see photos of your Bassets. Let's all start having fun and social gatherings with our favourite breed.
