BRACCO ITALIANO SOCIETY
Contact the KC for the latest secretary details
The Bracco Italiano Society was formed in 1998 to promote and protect the Breed and it's working interests.
The breed was introduced to the UK some ten years prior to this. Careful breeding programs made sure that numbers rose very slowly over the next ten years. All litters at that time were endorsed 'not for exhibition'. This was to protect the breed from the exploitation of the show ring and allow the breed to acquire a firm foundation in the field.The breed club came into being when it became apparent that the breed needed a 'voice' within the Kennel Club and KC licenced FIELD events.The bracco italiano is primarily a hunting, pointing, retrieving (HPR) breed. The breed club was established to make sure that the breed never lost this ability or quality.
