Hound Dogs - Hunting Dogs
The hound dogs, or hound breeds, as well as being great friendly
companion dogs, are, by many generations of selective breeding, excellent hunting dogs.
Scenthounds hunt by smell, Sighthounds hunt by sight, some use both. Training gun dogs
for the field, or for any type of hunting, is challenging, and training advice
is best found in the many dog books on hunting. See the many
pages of hound dogs, all hunting breeds, below.
