The Club Newsletter
The Club distributes a
newsletter bi-monthly called "Harking In", which has information about
upcoming events, reports from recent events and articles that are
of interest, whether health related, behavioural or just quirky.
The majority of our members receive the newsletter in full colour
via the internet but it is also distributed in hard copy for those
who do not have computers.
In case you wondered, the Harking In
gets its name from a hunting term - to Hark or to listen for the
sound of a pack member that has picked up the scent. Harking In is
the term used to instruct the hounds to go to another who has
found the scent - a "beagley" sort of follow the leader.
From time to time we will add some of
the articles on this website as we feel they are of interest to
many of you visiting the site, especially those of a health
related nature (*see below). Some of these are the result of a direct approach
from the Club's Health Subcommittee to specialist Vets and were
written especially for the Club. All articles have been reproduced
here with the kind permission of the author.

If you are having health related
problems with your beagle, particularly those mentioned above, you
might consider contacting one of the Club's Breed Enquiry Officers to
discuss it. All information given to them is treated
as confidential and this information helps in determining if there
are any problems arising in the breed. When a trend seems to be
developing, the Club approaches specialist vets for advice and
requests an article be written on the topic.
If at any time you have any questions for one
of the Committee you can use the
Contact page (next) to find which one will be able to help you
with your enquiry.
