Richard Reynolds began his involvement with dogs in 1962 as a veterinary assistant. Since then he has bred Beagles, English Foxhounds, Jack Russell Terriers, Norfolk Terriers, Fox Terriers and Wire Haired Dachshunds. He was an AKC all-breed licensed professional handler and is currently approved by AKC to judge all the hound breeds, some terriers and Best in Show. He is also approved to judge all classes of AKC Earthdog tests. Outside of AKC Richard has judged at all major hound shows on the east coast and is an approved judge for the American Working Terrier Association.
Reynolds’ focus has always been on preserving breed type through concentration on performance ability. He was a Master of Foxhounds with the only dual registry recognized hunting pack. His Old English hounds won a group at Westminster, many Bests in Show , many Large Pack classes at hound shows and the occasional Grand Championship. Most important, each hound hunted a regular 3 day a week schedule.
Recently Richard has pursued natural earthwork with Dachshunds and Terriers. Each of his five housedogs has earned AWTA’s Working Certificate. He has hunted with hounds and terriers in the US and England and observed them in the field as well as in the show ring. Friday nights will often find him in the alleys of New York City hunting wild rats with terriers of all breeds and sizes.
