Welcome to the Berkshire Valley Basset Hound Club (BVBHC) website!



The BVBHC is made up of Basset lovers from the New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania area. Our meetings are generally held in the central New Jersey area and are open to all.

On our website you will find information about the club, it's activities and members. Our members are involved in a wide variety of activities with our hounds - conformation, obedience, rally, field trials, tracking and therapy dogs.

If you are already owned by a basset hound, we have information about the breed and activities open to bassets in our area. If you are considering getting a basset hound, we provide a puppy/adult basset referral service.

We welcome you to click through our pages to learn more about the Basset Hound and our Club. If you can't find an answer to your questions among our pages, please email:
