Understanding Your Pet Trailhound by Emily Savage

Trailhound owner Emily Savage has recently written a very comprehensive book about Trailhounds. Every home should have one!

The books are priced at £16.99 plus £3.70 for 2nd class p+p (based on one book per package, within UK). Emily is very generously making a donation to Lakeland Trailhound Welfare for every copy that is sold.

Contents include:
An exploration of the breed
A look at their suitability for re-homing as a pet, and why they might be re-homed
A history of the sport of hound trailing, what it looks like today, and what training involves
The work of Lakeland Trailhound Welfare
Some wonderful tales from the families of retired hounds
The transition from fellside to fireside
Guidance on training life skills and managing common challenges
Providing enrichment through scentwork
Not to mention, some fabulous colour photography!

If you would like to buy a copy, please contact Emily direct. You can contact her via Facebook messenger (messages may not be visible if you are not fb friends), through the Norfolk Unofficial Trailhounds Group page, or email

With thanks and best wishes, Emily.


Thank you HTA

Thank you to the Hound Trailing Association for a £100 donation. We appreciate this as these are difficult times for all charitable organisations, whose fund raising has been extremely curtailed by Covid-19. We are still rehoming hounds and our primary costs are vet bills, so all donations are very welcome.

Donation from Les Tyson estate

Earlier this year, sadly, a well known houndtrailer from Ulverston, Les Tyson, passed away.  Les had always been a firm supporter of the work of Lakeland Trailhound Welfare and, over the years, several of his hounds had been rehomed through us.  We were very surprised and pleased to receive a donation of £400 recently from the family and executors of Les’ estate, in recognition of the Trailhound rehoming work we did for Les.  It was a very much appreciated gift that will be put to good use and we have thanked them for their generosity.
