Q. Do you have a preference of color?

A. No

Q. Do you have a preference of size?

Q. What attributes do you feel breeders have improved on over the years if any?

A. Movement

Q. What attributes do you feel breeders have lost over the years if any?

A. Size and maybe thinner skin.

Q. Do you prefer to see a bloodhound shown on a loose lead or a tight lead?

A. Loose

Q. Do you prefer a slower or faster gait for judging the bloodhound?

A. Faster - Usually our rings are too small for bloodhounds to show their beautiful gait.

Q. If you had equal quality bloodhounds in the ring, which attribute would be your decision maker for the win?

A. Head

Q. Would you like to see anything in the bloodhound standard changed or clarified?

A. Not really.

Q. Are there any common mistakes that bloodhound exhibitors make in the ring that you would like to see improved upon?

A. As we have mostly indoor shows, you can see that many bloodhound owners haven't trained their dogs to show inside. They are often afraid of the noises inside.
