Grand Griffon Vendeen

This fine-nosed breed also possesses a beautiful, distinctive voice. When tracking, Grand Griffon Vendeens will not shy from brambles, but they do need to work in a large area.

About the Grand Griffon Vendeen

Grand Griffon Vendeens are scent hounds employed by hunters with and without guns to chase large game, deer, roebuck, wild boar, and foxes, typically in a pack or on their own.

Docile but willful and enthusiastic, they do need some firm handling.
