    BGVs stem from long-established rustic stock, bred for work. Overall they are healthy hounds with few problems. However that is not to say they do not exist. The Health section gives information.

UK Results of 2016 Health Survey
The BGV Club committee thanks all those who took the time to complete the 2016 Health Survey.  Valuable information was received on ​275 UK registered BGVs. 

This will help the BGV Club Health Sub-Committee gain a balanced overall view of breed health, whether any problems are on the increase and, in turn, whether research is needed to investigate in any particular area.
