Snoopy helps write his Snippets for the Harking In

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.

Health Issues

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.
