Looking for more cottontail rabbits to build up my population - contact me if you have some to sell.
Also in need of someone to help train hounds and other work part time in my kennel.
Perfect seven-plus acre bottomland training area with good cover and plenty of rabbits located in Southern Maryland. Easier to jump rabbits and run hounds here than most clubs. I'm not sure of the future of clubs in this area, primarily due to poor management, so I built my own grounds. Holding kids only brace trials here every couple of months. Let me know if you are interested.
I am semi-retired and work hounds every day unless it's raining or snow covered. However, you must call or email to see if I have room as I don't take more then 5 hounds at any one time. No pups under 5 months or shy dogs accepted. If it's too shy I'll call and have you take them back. I train more beagles - both hunting and brace trial - than anyone else in this area.
WE VIDEO TAPE YOUR HOUND ON REQUEST, no charge.
If your pup does not start after 30 days, don't blame me and ask for a refund - blame your pup. Lots of folks bring pups here after they have been to other grounds and then expect miracles. Also, I don'e accept checks as this has been a problem in the past as well. All hounds worked individually several hours per week as needed. Current rates are $35 per week (or $7 per day for all-age) due to high feed costs, with a one month minimum (for pups in advance). I do not start pups with sight chases so I will work them for a full month. Also, I have had problems in the past with those who bring hounds to train and then don't show up for weeks after to pick them up. Therefore please read this training agreement and bring it with you when you bring your hound and your one month fee.
I don't raise pups but sometimes help others sell their young dogs as plenty of folks call me all the time. Drop me a note.

For the benefit of those new to the net, this page has been here since early 1993 (it is the net's first Beagle oriented internet page). I started trial Beagling in 1953 and belong to a brace club close to my home. If you are a brace beagler in the area, drop by with your best for a visit and run.
Beaglers who bring me hounds during the winter months please call ahead of time to make sure I don't have frozen grounds. When the ground freezes pups won't start easily. I also can't work rabbits when it rains hard as they get wet and die. While I'm right on top of the action and can act fast, there is a fee if your hound kills a rabbit.
