When I belonged to our Hunt Club, we used to exercise the Foxhounds loose like that, the only difference was we were on horses. They were held as a pack at all times, would never have been allowed to run off into the fields. Don't know what breed the ones in the video were but looked like some kinds of hounds. They were really well trained though and he must have known where he could let them leave from behind him on the bike.

I didn't think of that but foxhounds do run like that, but how do you stop them running off if they want to?

What a great video, thanks for posting the link. Almost makes me miss having a pack of dogs; almost.

I will trail ride, bike, with my two. They stay right with me and run as a pack as long as there is not a BIG distraction like a squirrel, then they are off. They will come right back though so I don't worry, much.

Hounds are a pack dog. You start out taking them out on foot when they are pups. With Foxhounds, depending how big the pack is, you have people called "Whips" that direct the hounds back into the pack with a long whip if they stray a bit, similar to what he was doing with his stick. You don't hit them with the whip, just let them know it is there. When they get on a scent, they all run together and are not very easily distracted.
