Welcome to the Bracco Italiano Club!
Membership is not just for people who show and/or work their Bracco - it is for all owners of Bracchi, for prospective owners and those who care about the breed.
Our aim is to protect the future of this ancient gundog and it's working ability. We need and appreciate your membership support of this aim.
Without breed clubs and their members this protection would not be possible. You may not have the time to be actively involved, but just by being a member of a club you are supporting the breed we all love. We hope you will come and join us for some fun and maybe learn a little too.
