Welcome to Woebgon Bassets
Woebgon Bassets is located in Southern California. We are are proud to be responsible breeders or "breed guardians" of AKC Champion basset hounds. Both of us have qualified as AKC Breeders of Merit at the Bronze Level. Puppies and older bassets are available occasionally. All of our adult basset hounds that we have bred are AKC Champions or are working towards their Championship and have exceptional pedigrees. More importantly our basset hounds are our children. They share our home with us. We pride ourselves in quality not quantity. Our litters are carefully planned. We conduct very extensive research before we select a sire for our litters. We do not sell dogs over the Internet or sight unseen. Our dogs are only sold when we find the right home for them. This site is dedicated to all our bassets; past, present and future.
Please don’t confuse basset hounds from AKC Champion parents with bassets from other sources. Our basset hounds are bred as closely to the AKC Standard for the breed as possible. Before purchasing a basset hound, even one intended to be a pet, from anyone familiarize yourself with this Standard and ask the breeder about it in regards to their breeding program. Why settle for less? Quality is proven in the show ring. Dog shows are for evaluating breeding stock.

We have had the great fortune to have been asked to have basset puppies from two of our litters participate in photo shoots with Cesar Millan aka The Dog Whisperer. Both were litters out of Joy. We'd like to thank Cesar and his staff for their hospitality and the photographers for their patience. It was indeed a great honor for our puppies to be selected for these photo sessions by Cesar and his staff.

We at Woebgon Bassets owe a lot to Sue and Andy Shoemaker of Shoefly Bassets. They recognized that we were serious in our intentions to show and eventually breed Champion basset hounds. The couple sold us our foundation males and helped us to get started with showing. The Shoemakers continue to provide valuable input for our breeding program and help with any issues.
We are also indebted to our former co-breeder, Heather Simonek. Without her friendship, love and devotion we would not have experienced the success that we have had with our breeding program and our success in the show ring. Unfortunately she passed away in 2009 at 39 from the Swine Flu. For more on Heather check out our Heather Tribute page.
SPECIAL NOTE: We have noticed that some websites have listed Woebgon Bassets on them. We have NEVER authorised any websites other than those published by the basset hound clubs to which we belong to include any information about us. We do not condone any such websites that list breeders. Please be very careful going to ANY of these websites. One that I discovered tries to freeze your computer and hold it for ransom money. IMPORTANT LINK: RED FLAG WARNING TO PUPPY BUYERS (pdf file)
Our plans to breed have not been finalized due to Don's heart bypass surgery in late November of 2017 and a possible change in who we may breed, Nadia or Pixie. Any updates will be announced here as soon as possible. For more detailed information and updates on future breedings go to this LINK.

There's really not much going on with us right now. We've decided to take the summer off from shows and don't contemplate a litter until early next year. Our first show after our summer break will be in September. Those of you who have visited our house often ask what goes on out in the workshop. Don has started a new venture and created a woodworking website and YouTube channel. You can check it out at WB Fine Woodworking. The website has links to his woodworking YouTube channel.
