Hugh has a great passion for Irish Wolfhounds, his mantra is to help improve their health, especially heart health, and hopefully secure the future of the breed in the UK. He has enormous empathy with Irish Wolfhounds, and one of his greatest pleasures and one he finds the most relaxing is walking with the hounds, watching them running and chasing around. He takes immense delight in capturing these moments as he is an avid photographer.
Over the years both Hugh and Carla have been discussing in depth the health of the breed with the experts. Together they decided that one of the ways forward was to actively improve the heart health of the Kennel. In conjunction with Dr Serena Brownlie PhD BVM&S MRCVS Cert SAC, they decided that by heart testing every hound twice a year, heart matching pedigrees and offering free heart testing to all the hounds bred by the Bonaforte Kennel, this would not only improve heart health, but would also help with the ongoing research.
Hugh takes great pleasure in sharing his photography with you, and hopes you enjoy as much as he does the delightful moments and the day to day life he shares with the hounds.
