Our main website is currently under going a major overhaul which is why there have not been any updates done during the latter part of 2016.
Our new website will be re-named ‘Houndsbay Scent & Sight Hounds’ this new title will reflect the direction in which we will be going in the future.
Due to the size of our original site our new website is taking a lot longer than expected, our new website will not be as large and will be easier to navigate.
We are hoping it will be finished before Spring 2017.
A friend has just had a litter of pups 3 boys, 3 girls they are all black blankets with white collars.
Our friend is a KC Assured Breeder both sire and dam have been KC/BVA Eye tested for Glaucoma and are Unaffected. Puppies will be KC endorsed ‘Progeny Not Eligible for Registration’.
For further info on this litter you can call us on Tel: 01536 760304

Our imported Male Flavio is the sire and the dam is a beautiful bitch called Kamilla Avaleur Du Sabre Avec Wayhead (Imp Belg), she will be staying with us until early Spring 2015. Kamilla is owned by our friend Philip Matthews-Brown (Wayhead) who has kindly let her come and stay with us during this time.
