When the shot was "not so
good"  and the blood trail is
faint, a quality tracking dog
can make all the difference in
the world.
Here at Hillock Kennels (pronounced hil eck meaning a small
hill for we live at the top of a small hill) we are committed to
producing the highest quality tracking dogs by competing in
tracking test when they are available, and real world tracking
experience. Each year more and more states are allowing
dogs for blood tracking and recovery of wounded game such
as deer and bear. If you are thinking about getting involved
with blood tracking with dogs. I recommend you look at the dog
of choice for trackers and foresters of Europe  the scent
tracking specialist  know as Bavarian Mountain Blood hounds.

The Bavarian Mountain Blood hound is also known as the is, Bavarian
Mountain Blood Dog ( which is the closest literal Bavarian Mountain Blood
hound is also known as the translation it has been pointed out to me that
Blood hound Bavarian Mountain  Scent Hound (this is what FCI's translation
should be used in the of a link between the BGS or BMH as it is commonly
refereed to by those speaking English and the Bloodhound that most are
familiar with. A lot of the confusion translations of Gebirgsschweisshund. The
full German name is Bayerische Gebirgsschweisshund. All Leash hounds are
descended from the original hunting dogs of Germany known as Bracken.  
They have a well developed will to follow a difficult trail. The Bavarian
Mountain Blood Hounds ancestry can be traced to around 1870 when Baron
Karg-Bebenburg successfully crossed (Tiroler Bracke) to create a lighter
blood tracking specialist. This created a more agile dog for the mountains of
Bavaria. At first sight, it is similar in appearance to the Hanoverian Blood
hound, but is shorter and finer boned than the latter. The only recognized
club for the Bavarian Mountain Blood Hound was created in 1912 in Munich,

Club for Bavarian Mountain Blood Hounds
Pups available from us.
The KBGS in Germany was very open to assist
us here in North America get a club established.
 As a club our members will be able to import
pups directly from Germany.  Pups will only go
to established members. If you are interested in
joining the BGS-GNA please let me know. Some
of the BGS the bases for the future breeding
program in this country. Each dogs pedigree will
be looked at before being allowed into the club
to make sure that the paperwork is correct.
There are some dogs in this country have come
from none working parents and/or puppy mills in
Europe. These are the type of dogs that we do
not want in the club. This club will take a
different mind set than most Americans are use
to. The very strict rules are there to protect this
great breed. I want to protect this breed thus the
reason I pursued a relationship with the breed
club in Germany. If you are willing to accept
these strict rules I welcome you to join

3/18/2012 Mirko passed his 20 hr VSwP up in
Aberdeen North Carolina.  Mirko flew through  
the track which was about 22 hrs old and just
over 1100 meters long with a max of 1 cup of
blood over that distance. With out making any
mistakes other than working the down wind
side of the track for a distance then getting
right back on track Mirko was able to a acquire
a top score of Prize 1. We also received the
report back from Germany on Mirko's hips. The
vet rated Mirko's hip as "A" Perfect which is
great news. Unfortunately the owner of the
female BGS that was imported at the same time
was not able to get off work to make it over to
for the test. This means we are still only able to
import BGS pups from Germany at this time.
Hopefully the next time a test is give we can get
a few more BGS to test and pass thus allowing
them to be used for breeding
