Just because I'm not posting doesn't mean I'm not reading. (Though I haven't been reading with much attention lately either). Either way, the forum will notify me of a PM with an email, which I definitely am reading.
Hounds, I would presume, function much like real life hunters' hounds. Walk around with them on the hunt, alert to the presence of prey, and then chase after the prey when directed to do so, either holding it down for the hunter to come finish it off, bringing it back after the hunter's long-range shot, or killing it and then bringing it back.
