Hounds are at the very centre of a hunt and we spend a significant effort to ensure they live in the best possible surroundings. There is always work to be done and each summer provides opportunities to walk the new arrivals (walkers are always welcome!), as well friends to help mend and upgrade the kennels. So if you do want to get to know our hounds and staff well, do come up and help out in the summer.
Breeding for Perfection
There are currently 34 couple of hounds in Kennels with a further 6 couple who are the puppies that will be entered this season. Both Old and Modern English, Welsh, as well as American blood lines run in the pack.
We are always looking for puppy walkers. Although puppy walking is a significant commitment, it is an invaluable part of a hound’s life. It is so important as hounds are at the very core of any hunt. If you do walk puppies, you will have the satisfaction of seeing your hound working over the years to come and you will quite rightly know that you’ve made a significant contribution through your time and effort (and no doubt patience!) to the Tedworth.
