Join Us In Colorado!

It's never too early to make plans for the 2019 BHCA Nationals in Colorado.  Events will take place from September 27 through October 4, 2019.

Our headquarters hotel is the Crowne Plaza Denver International Airport.  Conformation, obedience and rally competitions will be held at the hotel and it will also be the central gathering place for social and education activities.

Tracking, agility, field and hunting events will take place at facilities within a modest drive of the hotel.

Lots of Forms now available for dinners, education, RV parking, donations, Nationals Clothing. Check the Forms page to download them in PDF format.
