Hanover Hound |France|

Hanover Hound |France|

The Hanover Hound traces back to the liam hounds of the Middle Ages; these were “leash hounds” that hunted on a leash, held by a hunter on foot. As hunting methods changed with the invention of firearms, it became necessary to develop hounds that could search for wounded game. The old leash hound proved the most adapted to this, so they were bred specifically for these qualities. The Hanover Hound was established on the large hunting estates in the Kingdom of Hanover, where its breeding was carefully monitored. A breed club was founded in 1894 to oversee their continued success. The Hanover Hound is used solely for large game and is a specialist in tracking cloven-hoof game.
