The Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen Club of America (PBGVCA) is recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) as the official Parent Club for the Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen breed. The club was formed to encourage and promote quality of purebred Petit Basset Griffon Vendéen, at the AKC Centennial Show in Philadelphia, in November 1984. Eleven individuals, representing several states and a variety of breeds, but all with years of experience in dogs, constituted the foundation of the national club.

We are excited to have you visit and learn more about our special breed. The PBGVCA protects and advances the interest of the breed and any questions regarding our beloved breed are always welcomed. Enjoy!
