Effective January 1 2020 we are changing how hunts can be scheduled.  ARHA Hunt dates can now be scheduled 30 days prior to the hunt.  The hunt schedule must be received at the ARHA office at least 30 days in advance of the hunt date.  The hunts will be advertised on the ARHA website and a link is on the appropriate division Facebook page for upcoming hunts. For hunts to be listed in the Rabbit Hunter magazine, those dates must be received into the ARHA office 60 days in advance of the hunt date.

The ARHA-NKC is the fastest growing registry and field trial association for rabbit hounds in America.  With 170  Clubs Nationwide, the ARHA-NKC sanctions field trials for Beagles.  All beagles are eligible for registry with the ARHA-NKC. Our field trials are divided into divisions which feature all the different running styles of rabbit hounds.  Fast tracking hounds compete in Little Pack and Big Pack.  Medium speed hounds compete in Progressive Pack, and the tighter line-control hounds compete in Gundog Pack and Gundog Brace.  We also have bench competitions at our hunts which are judged on the hound's conformation to the breed standard.

The NKC/ARHA will not tolerate any form of animal abuse.  If you mistreat your dog , (which includes dog fighting) the National Kennel club will contact the proper authorities and the owner of the dog will be ban for life.

***Effective September 1st 2017 we will only require for 1 owner to sign for a dog to be transferred to a new owner  or register a litter when there are co-owners or multiple owners listed.
