Otterhounds have been a part of our lives for more than 30 years. We raise, breed and show them and they provide friendship, protection and entertainment. We have always owned dogs both pure bred and mixed.
The Otterhound or Otter hound originates in England although its heritage can be dated back to antiquity. It is one of the most ancient of the English breeds. It was developed about the time of King John (1199-1216).
Here are a few of the questions we are often asked. You can find the answers to these and more on the Otterhound Club web site http://otterhound.org/. I will answer them based on our personal experience.
