The Midwest Beagle Gundog Association was organized by three gundog clubs in 1980, Great Miami, Jessamine County, and Scioto Valley, that consisted of rabbit hunters and beagle enthusiasts who were not satisfied with the AKC registered beagle as a hunting and/or competition hound of that day.
The object of the current federation is to: ....encourage and promote the breeding of AKC registered beagles and to do all possible to bring their natural qualities to perfection, and to promote said beagles as hunting hounds."
This idea has caught the interest of many beaglers across the country and is regarded highly by them for the commitment to strive for excellence in the total beagle. The number of member clubs have grown steadily through the years to 22. Those clubs span across 8 states consisting of: Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Michigan, Ohio, & West Virginia. The emphasis has been on quality not quantity in clubs and entries.
The proof of the quality of the "Midwest" hound is our hounds not only winning in our own association, but them winning and placing from Canada to the Louisiana and several points in between as well. With the Federations commitment for excellence, we should prosper for several years to come.
