Hello and Welcome

If you want to find out more about adopting a trailhound, this is the place to be!

Trailhounds race over the Cumbrian fells following strong aniseed trails. Young hounds who do not take to racing, and retired hounds, are found loving retirement homes all over the UK by Lakeland Trailhound Welfare. They are available for homing from 1 year upwards. We home many privately, and others through reputable rehoming centres.

Trailhounds are often available in Cumbria, Kent, Yorks, Leics, Wiltshire, Norfolk, Uxbridge, Gloucestershire, Devon and Worcestershire! New hounds looking for homes DETAILS

Please go to our FAQs page to find out more. It tells you the history of the hound and why they make such good pets. Our training articles Your Trailhound As A Pet and Training Recall are available online or as leaflets.

Our Gallery pages are full of pictures and stories of hounds that have been successfully homed.

If you already own a hound, we would love to hear from you.
