General Information On Bloodhounds

 

The ancestry of the modern Bloodhound can be traced back to the monastery of St Huberts. These dogs were called ´Segusius´ and were originally used to track wolves, big cats or deer, or to follow the trail of wounded game. When the Normans conquered England in 1066AD they introduced many of their dogs and the St Hubert Hound was one of those brought to England and became known as Bloodhounds; or to be more precise, the black and tan dogs were, the whites were called Talbot Hounds. The modern Bloodhound is not the identical dog of that time but is still called the Chien du St Hubert in Belgium. The first Bloodhound seen in the show-ring in England was in 1871.

 

To succeed in training this breed, the new owner will need plenty of patience and consistency. Bloodhounds do have minds of their own but can be surprisingly sensitive. They are more profound than quick-witted. There are classes and trials for tracking and participation in this is to be recommended.

 

The skull is long and narrow with a very pronounced occiput and an abundance of loose skin especially over the forehead and sides of the face. The eyes should be medium-sized and dark brown or hazel in colour. The ears should be thin and soft to the touch, very long and falling in gracefold folds. The jaws should be strong with a complete scissor bite. The neck is long adjoining muscular and well-sloped shoulders. The forelegs should be large, straight with round bone. The thighs and second thighs should be very muscular. The back and loins should be strong. The feet should be well-knuckled up and strong. When moving the tail should be carried high. The preferred colours for the show ring are black and tan, liver and tan or red. A limited amount of white is allowed on the chest, feet and the tip of the tail.

 

Because of their size and growth rate, do not over-exercise as puppies. Care must be taken in the first year to ensure their bones and joints are given a proper chance to grow. They have phenominal stamina and, as adults, will need plenty exercise. Make sure the garden is well-fenced as they are primarily tracking dogs, and, once on the trail of an enticing smell, will be desperate to find its source! Their sense of smell is said to be two million times greater than that of a human´s! If not given sufficient exercise they can be boisterous! They will be about 3 years old before they reach full maturity.

 

These are gentle-natured, affectionate dogs who usually get on well with children and can live in harmony with other dogs and household pets. They are friendly and tenacious dogs who will welcome both wanted and unwanted visitors. Despite their size, they are not good guard dogs and would never dream of attacking. They have sweet and even temperaments and are the one of the most patient and kindest of dogs in the dogworld. Whilst quiet in the house, they can be very vocal outdoors. They are family dogs and do not like to be left alone.
