Greetings from David, Marlene and Karissa Groves, or what we call Buffalo Groves Bloodhound Ranch!
We are here to help you learn about Bloodhounds - Bloodhound History, Bloodhound Health, Bloodhound Standards, Bloodhound Puppies, and so much more!
We aren't the biggest Bloodhound Breeder (or Buffalo Ranch) and that's okay, we are quality over quantity, and love educating & advocating for Purebred Bloodhounds!
We mainly love our dogs and try to honor each one from the time they are a wrinkly rowdy puppy until they are an old white faced senior.
We train them, care for them, vet & health test them, socialize them, discipline them, show them, laugh at them, sometimes cry over them, and are always proud of them! We truly cherish each day we have them!
We are very committed to helping new & future bloodhound people (and the general public) learn about bloodhounds; but we also encourage law enforcement agencies along with search and rescue teams to learn more about the amazing working ability of bloodhounds!
We spend a lot of time advocating for purebred dogs, responsible dog breeders and for common sense dog laws & legislation.
We thank our bloodhound mentors, the incredible Anne Legge (RIP), the knowledgeable Adriana Pavlinovich and the helpful Susan Hamil.
Our dogs live in the house with us and are first and foremost our adorable (annoying) family pets! Our ranch is 400 acres, with thousands of acres around us. We have a couple acres fenced for the dogs providing plenty of outdoor time, exercise and enrichment. Their favorite things are going on ranch hikes, gathering firewood, chewing on logs & bones, bellowing when anyone drives up and playing hide & seek - sniffin'!
They do Conformation Dog Showing with most attaining beyond their Championship and some doing Rally and/or Obedience, while others prefer to use their noses and Trail (some even becoming top working law enforcement K9 Bloodhounds)!
The dogs enjoy doing Public Education at Dog Events, Schools, Libraries, County Fairs and a variety of other Community Events & Fundraisers; but they are likely most appreciated at the Senior Homes doing Therapy (or as we call it providing Dog Joy).
We think Bloodhounds are Wonderful Family Pets and they Enjoy doing Therapy Work and Public Education, can be Successful Show Dogs and are Amazing Working K9's!
