Founded 1897

The Association was founded at a meeting of Bloodhound owners held on 12th April, 1897. Membership to be open to any persons interested in the promotion of the breeding and training of Bloodhounds, and who have the welfare and improvement of the Breed at heart.

In the first year there were 25 members.

The main objectives of the Association were recorded as:

  1. To foster the interests of the Breed generally.

  2. To approach Show Committees with the view of obtaining extended classification in the Bloodhound classes.

  3. To offer prizes for competition at Shows in addition to those offered by Show Committees.

  4. To do everything possible to promote by Trials or otherwise, the training of Bloodhounds to hunt man.

And these objectives remain unchanged over 100 years later.
