Conformation

Hounds have been purposely bred to hunt. They are prepared for hunting in all conditions and over a variety of countries, with speed, ease of movement and stamina.

It is no coincidence, that a hound which has speed, versatility and ease of movement would not only be a hound that would last many seasons hunting without illness or injury, but also excel in the show ring. A hound with good confirmation will move easily and effortlessly. Alertness, bidability and intelligence are also factors which can influence the hound’s level of working and show ring success.

Nose, a hound’s scenting ability, is also a factor of breeding but cannot be judged in the show ring.
