About Hunting Beagle World

This event offers three days of world-class competition. Participants compete for prizes provided by the event sponsors, as well as prestige; the World Hunt Champion and World Bench Show Champion are crowned.

Competitors in this annual competition start as part of a group of World Champion hopefuls, representing entries from all over the U.S. and Canada.

The field of hopefuls is narrowed to the best-of-the-best Beagles and handlers during the World Qualifying Events that take place across the country throughout the year.
