Description

Hounds can be contrasted with gundogs, which assist hunters by identifying the location of prey and/or recovering shot quarry. The hound breeds were the first hunting dogs. They have either a powerful sense of smell or great speed.

There are three types of hound, with several breeds within each type:

  • Sighthounds (also called gazehounds), which follow prey predominantly by speed, keeping it in sight. These dogs are fast and assist hunters in catching game—fox, hare, deer and elk.
  • Scenthounds, which follow prey or others (like missing people) by tracking its scent. These dogs have endurance but are not fast runners.
  • The remaining breeds of hound follow their prey using both sight and scent; difficult to classify as they are neither sighthound nor scent hound.
  • Hound Group

    This may not include all hound-type dogs. The international kennel club association, the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, does not have a Hound Group and includes most hound-type dogs in Group 6, Scenthounds and related Breeds, and Group 10, Sighthounds.
