|The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen, or PBGV as
the breed is usually called, is an ancient
wirehaired basset breed of France that
continues to gain popularity in the US and
around the world. This beguiling hound is aptly
called the “Happy Breed” due to his sunny
disposition and his ever-wagging tail, sure to
cheer up his owners even on their bluest days.
Breeders prize the PBGV’s tousled appearance,
robust construction and his lively bearing. He is
not only a home companion with class and style,
he is also an active weekend sports dog, a bold
hunter, a naturally attractive show dog and a
talented performance dog. Written by foundation
PBGV breeder and well-known author Jeffrey G.
Pepper, this book offers readers insight into the
breed’s character and temperament. Not the
breed for everyone, the PBGV is an
independent spirit who uses his loud resonant
voice as freely as a French revolutionary.
This Special Limited Edition provides an
excellent history of the breed’s development in
France and its arrival to the US, as well as
coverage of the breed standard, puppy selection
and care. Fully detailed chapters also present
advice on house-training and obedience
training, solving puppy problems and home
safety. A special chapter on preventive
healthcare, written by Dr. Lowell Ackerman,
discusses selecting a veterinarian, inoculations,
infectious diseases, parasites and other vital
topics every owner needs to know.
