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.
