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.


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

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.
