Synopsis:

The perfect volume for all those who admire the most endearing of all sporting dogs: scenthounds

Scenthounds are the enthusiastic canine companions of all sportsmen who are thrilled by seeing a pack of hounds in full cry—watching these exceptional canine athletes exercising their delight in pursuing scent, whether real or artificial. Painstakingly researched and packed with information, this book covers both the well-known recognized breeds and more obscure ones. This book is not a manual covering training, grooming, nutrition, and dog care; it is very much a celebration of the hound's contribution to the sporting and companion dog scene, and an examination of their past, their performance, and their prospects in an increasingly urban society.

About the Author: David Hancock has studied dogs for over half a century in more than twenty countries. In 2009 he won the annual award of the Dog Writers' Association of America. David is the author of eleven previous books on dogs and over 750 articles published in national and international magazines.
