Celebrating the breed in the South East of England

Drawing of a Basset Hound by Sheila Tyson

If you have or are thinking of owning a Basset Hound in the future, this is the club for you.


We are barking mad about this wonderful breed & have been for more than years!

Join our very active membership & enjoy:

Getting together with other Basset owners on WALKS at venues around the South East of England. These give our hounds the opportunity to enjoy being part of a pack & a chance to crash around the countryside ‘letting off steam’. They give our members the chance to meet other Basset Hound Owners & to enjoy the experience of walking with the pack.

Walks are supplemented by picnics, barbecues & events such as our regular summer Fun Day & Christmas Lunch.

At club events members hounds are covered for 3rd party insurance.

Receive LOWDOWN by post twice a year.

Branch History

A miscellany of anything remotely connected with Basset Hounds, on occasion tenuous in the extreme.

From Elvis gyrating to Marilyn keeping cool, to Columbo at a Basset Hound Fun Day to Fats waxing lyrical on pedal extremities, to photos of member’s hounds & more.
