THE BLOODHOUND Club held its AGM at Baginton Village Hall, Coventry, which included the annual awarding of prizes and awards and then there was a small auction of artwork donated to the club, which went well and raised money to go to good Bloodhound related projects.

IT IS THE time of the year when the first working trials of 2017 is due to take place. That means packing the car with all the things you could need, for both you and the hounds. It always amazes me as to how much stuff we can all manage to cram into our vehicles, because you never know it might be needed.    ...

MANCHESTER brought with it the fog, disrupting people’s journeys – many people were stuck in traffic, having to make mad dashes into the venue to ensure they made their classes.      The car parking too seemed to be problematic as the wet weather made some of the normal plentiful parking area...

Bloodhounds - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

JANUARY is in full swing, with the weather truly not knowing what it wants to do; it goes very cold then warms up into higher temperature for the time of year, then there’s a bitter wind and a clear night frost, followed by thick fog. My hounds are losing their coats in handfuls, almost as they do in spring; even the b...

WELL, THE weather has well and truly turned towards the winter side. This time of year is a test of dedication in getting out and about to exercise the hounds. Dark in the mornings and dark at night, at least with fluorescent jackets flashing arm bands, head lamps and led torches it makes it slightly easier. Even though it c...
