Live Conversations from the
Hounds board

Hear what women have to say about this board:


The Hounds board is the place to share our dog stories, get tips for health or behavior problems, sympathy for illnesses or hurts and just dog knowledge in general. I now feel I know so much more about the various hound breeds and it has been a fun and invaluable learning experience.

There are others here that love their dogs just as much as I love mine and recognize the joy a pet can bring into one's life. I have two mini dachshunds and my two little hounds keep me on my toes. I usually get informative answers because we have a great bunch of dog lovers here.

People here on the Hounds board are friendly, courteous, and seem genuinely interested in helping and educating one another about their pets and specific breeds. I'm admittedly and happily hooked on this wonderful source.

My Beagle and my Boxer were my first dogs and I was so enthralled with them that I wanted to share my love for dogs with others like me. I have found that on the Hounds board. I have learned just about everything I know about dogs from this board. There are several dog experts here and I have yet to come across an issue or question about one of my dogs that I haven't received a thorough and knowledgeable answer. New members are welcomed warmly and quickly become a part of our little community.

The Hounds board is filled with dog-lovers sharing their everyday problems and joys. It's a wonderful community of like-minded women. I feel like I know the women on the Hounds boards as if we meet across the backyard fence to chat! The information and support is terrific; the links and networking always bring solutions to problems.

I first found the Hounds board when I adopted my first greyhound. I wanted to get to know other people who loved hounds, too. Everyone here is warm and welcoming and loves dogs. When a problem comes up, I can always get ideas and suggestions on how to handle things. What makes this board special are the people who post here.
