Want to lead a walk?

If you want to organise a walk in your area, please let me know and I'll put it up on this site. Criteria: 5+ miles, with some woods or open moorland for a good run and ideally finish near a pub or café.

The Basset Hound Club Membership is just £9 a year. For reasons that I do not understand the long running S-W branch of the BHC folded last year but has been absorbed as a branch of the Basset Hound Club of Wales. They hold some Fun Days and short walks. For their website see here.

The South East Basset Club can be found here. We were members 30 odd years ago. A cheerful bunch.

Scotland Basset walking group: similar group to us, see here.

A new group is being formed in the Derby/Notts area. To see more click here to reach the Facebook page. (or Google Bass'adores Midlands).

Blind Bassets
One of our walkers, Christine Paradine, has published a book on her hound Paxton, who is blind, and her life with animal rescue called Pawprints through my life. She has already sold 100 copies. Details here.

Websites

All Things Bassets is a newsy website. Usual registration to view. See here.

www.dailydrool.com is excellent and although US in origin there are quite a few of UK-ers who are members

www.bassettissimmo.com for Basset nuts (sorry can't think of any other way of describing this)

Basset boarding

We have used Jan Board at Langport for many years as she allows them in their house - not kennels - has a two acre field attached AND somehow gets them in her van and gives the pack of assorted dogs another walk in the woods. Several of our group have used her so she is well used to Bassets. Cannot speak too highly of her. See here.

One of our group - Jo Maunder - also offers boarding in the Paignton area and used to own a Basset. See here.
