Norrbotten Beagle Club was formed in 1986 and has since worked to develop the Beagle hound, mainly for hunting hare. Besides a good hunting companion suits beagle the entire family. It is well known for great social ability. Beagle is an active dog and off hunting season it needs lots of exercise or activities such as agility. Norrbotten Beagle Club is an active compound and organizes exhibitions and field trials. We try to continuously develop our operations and cooperate with the other races, which also has similar interest. Despite long distance, we have several functioning field trials with good accommodation, some good food and friendly community. The club has also an interesting exchange with Finland in both the breeding and field trial, an example is the contest “Border-river challenge” between both our (Sweden- Finland) northern clubs. Old and new members are welcome to participate in our activities both in the woods and on the show. At the annual membership meeting or exhibition, you have the opportunity to meet other members and discuss beagle, not to mention the annual meeting. The club will continue its regional efforts to highlight the genuine Beagle.
A hunting dog which is known for its sturdy paws and its big desire for hunting … a hound well adapted to the northern forests.
