Hotels

This year's ABdFC National Specialty is closer than you think. Make sure you have your Hotel reserved. Check out the Hotel page for information on rates and Bouvier specialty discount. Be aware that the $30 one time pet fee is only available if you call the Hotel and make your reservations with the room discount code "Bouvier Group", online reservations won't get you the one time pet fee.

Volunteers

We have a wonderful group of members handling the various events but as always the Event Chairs can't do it alone. If you have a couple of hours to help the club please contact a Specialty Chairperson or send your contact information, what committee your interested in volunteering and when your available in an e-mail to us at BouvierNatl2014@gmail.com.

Improving the health of our beloved breed in the future is the responsibility of every Bouvier owner. You can help Bouvier Health Foundation (BHF) improve the health of Bouviers by submitting your dog's DNA to the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) DNA Repository. Get more details about the DNA Blood Draw event.

Our Bouviers aren’t just pretty faces that can run around a conformation ring or weave through agility poles or herd a flock of sheep or pull a cart or do a perfect sit stay. The Photo Contest is all about showcasing these wonderful dogs that enrich our lives in so many different ways. We invite you to share these special moments by entering the photo contest! Get more details about the photo contest.
