Hound Group: What is it?

Hound Group is the name of a breed group of dogs, used by kennel clubs to classify a defined collection of dog breeds, and does not necessarily include all hound-type dogs. Most major English-language kennel clubs include a Hound Group (including The Kennel Club (UK), the American Kennel Club, the Canadian Kennel Club, the Australian National Kennel Council, the United Kennel Club, the Professional Kennel Club, the American Coon Hunters Association, and theNew Zealand Kennel Club) although different kennel clubs may not include the same breeds in their Hound Group. The international kennel club association, the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, does not have a Hound Group, and includes most hound-type dogs in Group 6, Scenthounds and related Breeds, and Group 10, Sighthounds. (Wikipedia)

Most hounds share the common ancestral trait of being used for hunting. Some use acute scenting powers to follow a trail. Others demonstrate a phenomenal gift of stamina as they relentlessly run down quarry. Beyond this, however, generalizations about hounds are hard to come by, since the Group encompasses quite a diverse lot. There are Pharaoh Hounds, Norwegian Elkhounds, Afghans and Beagles, among others. Some hounds share the distinct ability to produce a unique sound known as baying. You’d best sample this sound before you decide to get a hound of your own to be sure it’s your cup of tea.  (AKC)
