Details of books which are available – the most definitive book on the Griffon was written by Miss Marjorie Cousens and published in 1960 but sadly this has been out of print for some years although copies can sometimes be found at Shows or Car Boot sales. In recent years there has been a book published by another well known breeder, the late Mrs. Doone Raynham, which contains a lot of helpful tips and nice photographs – for information on availability please contact the Secretary.
Helpful advice on trimming your Griffon – the Griffon Bruxellois Club produces a booklet which gives advice and helpful tips on keeping your rough Griffon looking smart and trim.

These are available at Club events or by post from the Secretary.
