Bulldog Club of America

National Specialty Show


The Bulldog Club of America is composed of eight (8) regional divisions. The National Show Guidelines outline requirements for the annual event hosted by one of the divisions on a rotational basis.

Due to the overwhelming size of its entry, the BCA National Show is a week-long festivity planned between September 1 and December 1, each year. The National activity schedule can be obtained from the summer issue of The Bulldogger or on the National Specialty Website.
