Some of the CBC breeders were discussing this topic. Some of us get many inquiries for hunting dogs. It seems near the end of the conversation either we are not comfortable placing a puppy or the person inquiring has realized this breed is not right for their purposes. Although Throughout History it has been said that Bloodhounds used to hunt in packs this is no longer common practice. The Primary use for the bloodhound when it came to North America was to be crossbred to create some of the other hound breeds such as; the Black and tan Coohound, the Blue tick hound, the and Walker There are still remote European countries that use them for wild boar. They are very effective at finding and driving an animal from cover but No more effective than any other hound breed. Considering Bloodhounds can not be off lead, all trailing is done on 15-25 FT leads and harness.We have gotten many calls from people who want to trail wounded game. This can be illegal in many places across Canada that can result in fines and the Ministry taking your dog! As reputable breeders We want our puppies to go to quality homes where they will be cherished family members not a hunting tool.
