BGV Club Events

Club Shows
Traditionally the BGV Club holds two shows a year - an open show in the spring and a championship show in the autumn.
In 2022 the BGV Club will hold the first Scottish Open Show on Sunday 19th June 2022 in conjunction with Border Union Agricultural Society General Championship Show.

Fun Days and Walks
Details of Fun Days and Walks will be posted on the news page and on the Club Facebook Group. These are a great chance to meet with other BGVS and their owners.

Breed Education - Public Events, Discover Dogs
Discover Dogs is a unique event that enables people to meet and greet nearly 200 breeds of dog, to shop for dog related products - and to watch displays and competitions.  It also helps people understand the importance of choosing the right breed for their lifestyle. 
Every year the BGV Club and enthusiastic members participate in the two Discover Dog events held at the NEC during Crufts and at ExCeL, London. 
There are also other events throughout the year such as the National Pet Show, when the BGV Club is sometimes invited to attend.
If you are interested in representing the breeds at one of these events please contact Ceri McEwan our Discover Dogs Co-ordinator on or 07854 129944

Breed Appreciation Days (BAD)
For many years the club has held regular educational events to give judges or anyone interested the opportunity to learn more about BGVs.  Assessments (Breed Appreciation Days) are also mounted to help aspiring judges gain a foothold on the club's judging lists.
Being responsible for both the Petit and Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen gives a unique opportunity to​ highlight the importanat differences between the two breeds.

Details of future seminars/assessments, Breed Appreciation Days will be announced in the news section, on the Club Facebook group and via the Kennel Club. If you are interested in attending a BAD please contact the Breed Education Co-ordinator Claire Cooper.
