Fauve Title Recognition at the National Specialty

This year at our Clubs’ 1st Nationals being held in September at Purina Farms the Basset Fauve de Bretagne Club of America would like to recognize all titles your Fauve has earned with a special Award Certificate for your dogs’ accomplishments.

So, if you are a member of the BFdBCA we want to acknowledge your dog. It doesn’t matter if it is an AKC title, UKC, NASDA, NASCSW, Therapy Dog or any other recognition we want to recognize you and your dog’s accomplishments.

In order to do so I need you to submit to me by AUGUST 31,2023 the following information as you want it to be written on the Award.

  1. Registered Name of Dog
  2. Call Name
  3. Owners Name
  4. List of Titles you want recognized in the order you want them on the Certificate.

Please make it legible and the correct spelling because I’m not going to be familiar with all these titles.  It would also help to include what the title is.  For example, the title SD-1 Shed Dog 1 is a NASDA title (North American Sports Dog Association).

Please send the information for your certificate and or questions to:
