The castle of Cheverny has a kennel where they breed hounds. The name of the owner of the castle is Vibraye, that's why the big letter "V" is on the side of the dog. Not tattooed or burnt but cut with scissors, says the information board.
Every detail of the kennels life is in conformity with the rules and the area that dogs occupy varies according to their number. The place looks small, but can't be bigger. The dogs start running around wildly, get nervous and show signs of aggressive behaviour.
Many of the castles were built and visited because their owners were passionate hunters. Trophy hall and tapestries of Chambord castle:
Lots of tapestries show hunting scenes, some of the dogs look like the hounds of Cheverny
