Header - 2021 National Specialty Landing Page

The 2021 National Specialty will be held in Lima Ohio from Friday, October 1 through Friday, October 8. There's a great line up of events, starting on the 1st with the Hunt Performance Test, followed by Field Trials, Tracking, Obedience and Rally, Agility, Scentwork, and all the conformation events. The week will include a welcome party, educational events, a Basset Fun Day, and more Bassets than you can count on any given day.

The Nationals Committee sincerely hopes you will join us in this event, and come together again with friends and hounds after the long dry spell we have all endured over the past year and more!
