Vènerie, French Hunting With Hounds

Recommended Posts

Just out of interest what is the general perception of English hounds from the majority over the channel ?

I know that the Devon & Somerset staghounds have drafted hounds to France and that the Quorn have drafted hounds from France.

It's interesting to know :thumbs: because all hounds a long time ago came from over the channel . As Blaise mentioned they have a wider variety over the channel but it's good to hear they feel our hounds have something to offer...................... It seems a whole different ball game over there with breeds a lot more specialized ..................Hopefully I'll make the trip one day but I'll have to brush up on my french first :yes:

Very appreciated !

 

For a long time, french went in UK to find some dogs to cross with their own lines or to have pure english lines (harrier, beagle, black and tan).

 

Concerning terrier, we had nothing, we have used english breeds or from germany.

 

Concerning hounds we have a lot of breeds. But among these breeds, a lot had been crossed sometimes with hounds from UK.

 

Usually, french hounds are very well for nose and voice, english ones better for speed, hot-blooded.

 

One of our famous hound breed is named anglo-francais, every thing is in this name.

 

 

Thanks for the reply :thumbs:

 

I suppose the lack of terriers is because of the Different styles of hunting your have ?

 

What is the most popular quarry to hunt over there or does it vary from region to region ?

Boar is known for jumping length but not height, this video proves that it is wrong.
