Champion Hounds

The honour of winning the HTA Championship is not to be taken lightly.  With approximately 300 hounds registered in any one season, to rise to the top and be crowned champion takes enormous amounts of dedication, training and nurture.  Over the years the honour has been granted to a select few hounds, with some winning multiple back-to-back championships.
