"As a great lover of hounds and everything connected with hunting, I have ventured to write these few chapters, and it has been by endeavour to give those who should chance to read my little volume the result of my experience, and as the greater part part was written far away from any books of reference, I have been unable to give extracts from other sources. That there are many points I have missed I feel certain, and I will only ask the reader to think kindly of my faults, and to realise the difficult task I have but poorly achieved". Chapters include:- Hound breeding - foxhounds, harriers, beagles; A year's work in kennel; Brood bitches and whelps; Kennel lameness; Landowners, shooting tenants, and farmers in relation to foxhunting; Plan of kennel and notes; A few prescriptions and remedies for kennel use; Names of hounds. The author is given only as "Sentinel" however Ken Callahan, in his Dictionary of Sporting Pen Names, gives the author's name as William H. Bogart.
