A distinctive, regal breed of scenthound derived from the centuries-old packs of France, the English Foxhound is an uncommon choice as a family companion, especially when compared to that small foxhound we know as the Beagle. The English Foxhound, first and foremost, is a thoroughbred hunting dog, prized for his athletic ability and stamina. The chapter on the breed’s history paints a romantic picture of the breed running ahead of British redcoats on the field as well as hunting alongside America’s first president, George Washington. Deciding whether the English Foxhound is the right dog for you is the focus of the chapter on the breed’s characteristics. This packhound is more biddable than his American cousin (the American Foxhound), though a bit larger, and requires a king’s portion of exercise, socialization, and daily attention. Because the English Foxhound was bred to run for long distances in the company of other foxhounds, his nature cannot be changed, and potential owners must decide whether they have the inclination to share their lives with such an active scenthound. For owners who decide to add an English Foxhound to their families, they will discover a happy-go-lucky, friendly companion dog that adores the company of children and enjoys being involved in the family’s activities.

Inside this Comprehensive Owner’s Guide, new owners will find a well-prepared chapter on locating a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Given the rarity of the breed, new owners will require patience to find an English Foxhound puppy (or adult), but all breeders attest that it’s worth the wait. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, exercise, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on health provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.
