The number of specimens of this breed of hound drastically decreased after two world wars. French hunting enthusiasts managed to save her, although many unique French breeds were lost to the world during these terrible times.

However, FCI recognition hardly increased the international awareness of this dog, so it did not win the appreciation of hunters from other countries.

    English Foxhound History

    The English Foxhound can be considered a classic among British hunting dogs. This traditional breed is probably a cross between the Bracken medieval and the greyhounds, which were supposed to provide lighter weight for previously heavier tracking dogs. Its field of application was and is hunting, more precisely: pack fox hunt, also called “hunting by force”. In this hunt the herd chases game animals such as roe deer or foxes until they are exhausted. Persistent dogs can stay on their prey's heels for up to five hours. Although they are not faster than the pursued, tire the hunt so that the human hunter can hunt it. The “hunting by force” flourished in the 18th and 19th centuries, when it was practiced by the German nobility, British and French. Only the aristocracy could afford this elaborate form of hunting, and often destroyed numerous fields under the hooves of horse carts on the miles of unpredictable routes.

    In the meantime, this form of hunting is prohibited in Great Britain, as well as in most European countries. In Germany, by the way, this prohibition was not originally justified by the practice of hunting, which is questionable from an animal welfare point of view. Rather, prohibition, when came into force in the years 30, aimed to limit the privileges of the nobility – and therefore also hunting. But a few decades later, hunting laws confirmed the ban. But this was not the end for him English Foxhound: Today, trawling is a friendly alternative – not the killing of the hunt, but the joy of riding fast together with the herd is the main focus. In 1964 the breed was recognized by the FCI. Besides of English Foxhound, there is also the American Foxhound, slightly lighter construction.

In keeping with your original purpose and the life of your ancestors, who almost without exception lived in large herds, the English Foxhound show good obedience, but does not usually establish close relationships with humans individually. Even today dogs grow up in the pack and stay there. If a stronger impression on humans is desired, the English Foxhound would have to be taken out of the pack already at puppy age, but this is not practiced, because these dogs are primarily professional hunting companions and not companion dogs. In addition, the Foxhound always retains a relatively high degree of stubbornness and does not show a pronounced “will to please”. Despite your stubbornness, the breed also has an affectionate side: to much Foxhounds they love to be petted and are also quite playful.

    English Foxhound Education

    The majority of the English Foxhounds are hunters and receive proper hunting dog training, which is absolutely necessary. When you keep a English Foxhound as a companion dog, there may be some obstacles to overcome, because this breed is a passionate hunter who does not have a close relationship with people individually. Especially if you have lived in a pack for a long time, it is difficult to establish a close relationship with the sociable four-legged friend.

    Promote the bond with common rituals and lots of positive motivation. This doesn't always have to consist of treats – petting or small games can also reward this breed of dog. The breed is considered to be very social and gets along very well with its peers. It should be clear to everyone that this four-legged friend has a great hunting instinct, adjust your walks accordingly and make sure the neighbor's cat or puppies by the roadside remain safe.

    The diet of the English Foxhound

    The English Foxhound needs a species-appropriate food, what it means: It must contain a lot of meat! Offer your English Foxhound wet or dry food without cereals, where meat is the main ingredient. Particularly for Foxhounds who are hunters, the energy requirement is highly dependent on the calories actually consumed – on days with long races up to 15 km, the four-legged friend needs correspondingly more energy. A food with a higher fat content is recommended for the most demanding sports needs. Give your dog the last serving about three hours before a sports session, so you have enough time to digest it before you start. Snacks are rarely necessary even during the longest sports drives. It is important that you Foxhound get a nice meal and a long rest after the job is done. The Foxhound it is a very good food processor – to avoid being overweight, watch your waistline and cut your portions accordingly when you start to gain weight. Dry chews are a welcome change to the four-legged friend's diet. However, avoid feeding the rumen with food, as it is suspected of promoting bloodhound ataxia in Foxhounds.

    Remember to Drink Lots of Fluids: allow your Foxhound drink water at least once an hour, even during a hunt. There should always be enough fresh water available for all the four-legged friends in the kennel.

    English Foxhound Health

    A Foxhound healthy is basically a very robust quadruped. But if you want to keep these dogs running, you must inform yourself in advance about the call Hound Ataxia. This is a neurological disorder that mainly affects the Foxhounds and to the Beagle. It usually occurs between the second and seventh year of life and manifests as movement disorders and spasticity. The cause is a breakdown of the white matter in the thoracic cord and of the gray matter in the dog's brain stem.. It is not conclusive if feeding in the rumen favors the outbreak of the disease; However, it is recommended to avoid it as a precautionary measure. Usually, the disease continues to progress without effective treatment options. The English Foxhounds they should also be screened for hip dysplasia before breeding with them. In addition, it is important to avoid being overweight, since the English Foxhounds that don't have enough demand get fat quickly. Dogs can reach an age of up to 13 years.

    Activity with the English Foxhound

    Many kilometers at full gallop – this is the amount of work that English Foxhounds not only drive but also appreciate. Trawling is a good alternative to the old hunts and is now organized throughout Europe, for example, in trawling clubs. The animals follow a foxtail or a brine trail from the rumen that drips from the containers that the riders carry later. If, even if it is not the ideal case, you have a English Foxhound that is not used for hunting, you can take him for a bike ride or learn about sports like canicross. In addition, their Foxhound should have room to frolic, ideally within a large fenced property and with other dogs of the same species. If your specimen is no longer able to hunt due to physical impairments, give him a mental workload instead and see if slower nasal work, like guided mantrailing, it's a good idea for your dog.

    Caring for the English Foxhound

    The short, soft coat of the English Foxhound does not present a challenge in terms of grooming. Regular brushing or massaging with a grooming glove removes excess hair and is a pleasure for many quadrupeds. Especially if you don't have a English Foxhound in a pack but as a companion dog, you should practice such bonding rituals with him from an early age. With older dogs, the claws should be examined regularly to avoid painful hooking when they get too long.. You should also regularly check your dog's coat for parasites and discuss prophylaxis with your vet..

    Where can I find an English Foxhound?

    This breed is usually bred by hunters for hunters, and that's a good thing. If you are interested in having these dogs and you have the time, money and space to raise a herd, you can find out in the trawling clubs. You're probably already familiar with them anyway, because without this form of organized hunting, forming your own herd makes little sense. In any case, stay away from Foxhounds individuals who were raised without papers and whose parents are not hunters. Most are dubious sellers who want to make money off the classic hunting dog. Puppies are not usually Foxhounds pure-bred, but mixed races. It is wiser to resort to the animal welfare when looking for mixed-breed dogs with a part of Foxhound, rather than supporting dubious breeding practices.

    If you are looking for a English Foxhound adult, you can find one at professional trawler clubs, for example. These always give away older dogs that are not suitable for very demanding use in trawling.. However, you should ask yourself critically and clarify in discussions with the pack leader if you have the possibility of offering this sporting dog with the characteristics already described a species-appropriate home.
