In the United States of America, the breed has been treated over the years as a genuine show dog in small numbers, but it is only occasionally seen in the show ring in Britain.

Most adult Foxhounds are maintained in kennels in packs by one or other of the hunts; the puppies are ‘walked’ through their growing period by hunt-supporters in order that they should become part socialised. As a breed, they have to be recognised as being relatively large and determined; discipline I not their strong point.

Foxhounds are registered with the Kennel Club irregularly on the basis of reciprocal agreements with masters of recognised hunts. The breed may well make a greater impact in the show ring in the future.
