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.

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, Germany.
The only recognized group in North America is the BGS-GNA which is a working group
associated with the parent club in Germany

Club for Bavarian Mountain Blood Hounds
Pups available from us or members of the BGS-GNA.
The KBGS in Germany has been very open to assisting us here in North America to get our group established.  As a
roup we have been able to import pups directly from Germany for our members.  All pups come with a proper
pedigree with all the proper stamps to ensure they are coming from working bloodlines and that the parents have
been fully tested before breeding. Our group has also been able to hold several Vorprüfung, the preliminary test. The
dogs that pass this test and meet other requirements are then eligible for breeding.
If you are interested in joining the
BGS-GNA please let me know. E
ach new pup we get becomes 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
that 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.
We will follow the rules set forth by the KBGS, some of these are very strict rules and are in
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 BGS-GNA.
