Breeding hounds is like gambling with a stacked deck. We increase our odds of winning by choosing and combining desirable traits and hoping that genetics will do the rest. Everyone who breeds with purpose has the intention of bettering their pack, whether it for drive, voice, biddability or any of the other factors which make a great hound. The unfortunate reality is that even the most favourable hand can lose when it comes to inherited genes.
