Learn about Our Breed

The Public Education Committee works to provide educational opportunities in areas that will be of interest to the public, as well as assist Basset Hound Clubs or other groups by providing useful materials for Meet The Breeds and other similar events.  Their work is on behalf of the Basset Hound Club of America and Basset Hound Owners everywhere.

The Committee is happy to provide impartial guidance and referral information to prospective new owners seeking advice or assistance.
