About Hound Shows

Click here to read the MFHA’s “Guide for Hound Shows, Puppy Shows & Performance Trials” [2013].
The Masters of Foxhounds Association of America’s Guide for Hound Shows tells us that the purpose of Hound Shows is to provide the opportunity to evaluate the quality of hounds, gain knowledge, and exchange ideas not only about breeding and showing hounds but also relating to many other areas that are essential to the sport of foxhunting.

A huntsman seeking to add to her kennel’s gene pool may use hound shows as a time to view and compare foxhounds, evaluating merits and traits that she might like to introduce to her pack.

Hound shows are also a social time for masters, huntsmen, hunt members, and attendees to discuss foxhounds and hunting in a relaxed and open setting.
