The BARRENGER BASSET HOUNDS HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED SINCE 1968
ABOUT US www.barrenger.co.uk
The Barrenger Basset Hounds live on the beautiful Somerset Levels. Basset Hounds are our only breed and their ages range from a few months to 13 years. We always keep our older Bassets as they are very precious. Sandra judges Basset Hounds at championship show level both here and abroad. We are always happy to share our long earned experience of this wonderful breed.
As genuine lovers of the Basset Hound we are very proud of our pack and in company with our friends we show our Basset Hounds throughout the year. All our hounds are important, whether they win or not, as they are part of our family. We enjoy showing them at Championship show level and have 6 champions, winning 51 Challenge Certificates so far. They are also our much loved pets and companions.
We occasionally have well bred, well socialised puppies available to loving suitable homes. Our puppies are sold as pets only, not for breeding and carry Kennel Club endorsements to that effect. If you have not owned a Basset before it is essential that you visit and meet the adult hounds as you only live with a puppy for a short time!
Our dog hounds that are available for stud are proven sires and you can see some of their winning progeny on our pages here and our web site. All of our Bassets here have never had any kind of surgery to correct faults and neither have their parents. They have proved themselves in the showring and you can see many of their winning progeny on our web pages.
Our hounds enjoy a varied and comfortable lifestyle. They go on walks with other Bassets, help cheer up the elderly, attend shows, help with the gardening - (very good at pruning!) visit our friends and, even do a little advertising, see the picture of Gaddie with her friend Cobweb on the front page of the Radio Times on our web site.
We are always happy to talk to you about Bassets and share our knowledge of his great breed and our gang loves to welcome any visitors, but please ring us first and wear your OLD clothes if you really want to get to know them.
