Fox hunts, in which groups of dogs and humans on horseback chase after a single fox until it runs out of energy,
are the original purpose of breeding these exceptionally energetic pack hounds.
fox hunting is outlawed in the United Kingdom, which is great news for foxes but bad news for foxhounds.

In order to hunt puffin birds on the remote northern islands of Norway, this dog was deliberately developed to do so.
As a result of their high degree of flexibility and the extensive range of motion that their joints possess,
they are able to access the nooks that puffins use to nest.
Currently, the only place where puffins are hunted is in Iceland.
