Breed History / Description

Traditionally, the English Foxhound has always been a pack hound and with many hunts developing their own readily identified 'type'. The annual Festival of Hunting at Peterborough sees the spectacle of exhibits from many packs throughout country in competition. 

Only in the recent past have we seen Foxhounds in the show ring in the UK although they have been established in the show rings of the USA and Australia for much longer.


Stamina and endurance, natural ability to hunt. 


Friendly and not aggressive.
