About us




Welcome to Viracocha Gundog & Hounds, based in a beautiful village on the Herts/Beds border, our beagles, & Pointer all live in our home and all our dogs whether still at home with us or with their new families are very much loved by my Husband Jim, our beautiful daughters Tallulah & Darcey, and I, Charlotte. 


We are fortunate to have such wonderful surroundings, we live within seconds of miles of open farmland and Woodland giving all our dogs a good daily walk using all their natural instincts. 


Growing up in Hertfordshire, I was lucky enough to always be around animals and have pets.  I grew up with our pet dog Pepsi, and from the tender age of 6, I spent all my free time at a Stud Farm.  By 9 years old I was given a wonderful gift from my parents, a horse.  My life spiralled into a magical world of competition, and my fondest memories are of the days when my horse Blaze and I were competing, walking the course, eating hot dogs from the bacteria in a bun van, and working together as a team to be the best you could be.


I'm fortunate to serve on the Committee as the Membership Secretary of The Beagle Association. In the past I have been a Committee member of the Beagle Club.


Nothing has changed for me other than I do not have my horse any more.  We have Beagles, Inca the Pointer.  I love the competition, and our dogs fulfil my dreams and fulfil our lives. 



Our affix Viracocha comes from the interest my partner has of Macchu Picchu, Peru and the Incas, Viracocha is the greatest of the Inca Gods.  Jimmy has finally in 2018 managed to do the Inca trail and loved every moment of it.


Having passed both the Hands on Assessment, Conformation & Movement and Requirements of a Dog Show Judge in October 2009 my future as an exhibitor, Kennel Club Accredited breeder, and judge will be based on integrity, love and happy, healthy, hounds.  


I hope you enjoy the website.
