Hound Group Breed Sites Page 1

Listed below are the associations/clubs that have been officially recognized by the American Kennel Club as the Parent Organization for the breeds in the Hound group. These sites have a great amount of information specific to the breed they represent, including history, standards, upcoming events, and much more.

If you are interested in a particular breed in the Hound group, we highly recommend you visit the site of that breed’s parent organization, and read up as much as you can on them.

The following breeds in the Hound group do not have their own website, so to get their information, go to the AKC website for further information

  • American English Coonhound
  • Beagle
  • English Foxhound
  • Plott
  • Redbone Coonhound
  • Treeing Walker Coonhound

Although the Bloodhound has a website, per the AKC, several checks on it could not get a response. The American Bluetick Coonhound also has a website, but it is extremely limited in the information provided, and has not been updated in about a year and a half. These two websites are not included below.

Currently there are 20 websites listed for the Hound group.

Navigate to additional listings using the links below and at the bottom of the page.

Random Dog Quote

A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.
