Puppy Show Photos 2017
Green Spring had an informal Puppy Show Sept 9th with our new huntsman, Ashley Hubbard, and his professional whip, newly-returned Tim Michel, aided by kennelman Klaus Lygren. The idea behind the Puppy Show is to introduce the puppies who will be entered this season to the show ring and to get another perspective on their conformation. Thank you to this year's judges Geoff Hyde (Elkridge-Harford) & Dan O'Toole (Mt. Carmel). While all the hounds looked great, the winner of the dogs was Naylor and of the bitches, Playgirl. Look for these puppies and others to shine at the upcoming hound shows!

Cubbing Q & A
Q: What is the difference between hound exercise and cubbing?
A: This is the time where all the preparation starts to come together; hounds are fit and the young entry have been exposed to everything they might encounter out hunting. Up to this point, we have spent our time keeping the curiosity in check and trying to maintain a level of calm; and finally the day comes where everything changes. Now we expect them to almost do the opposite of what we have been doing throughout hound exercise. As you can imagine, this could be a little confusing to a young hound.
