    Большое спасибо. Но, что точное смысл выражений "looks after hounds" и "brings to bay"? (Are these sentences correctly written?)

    I use vocabulary, so I can write a piece of shit.

    Looks after hounds - I meant that when not at the hunt, person feeds hounds, looks how they are, prepares them for hunt.
    Brings to bay - At the wolf's hunt, wolf is driven to the hunters by other people.

    Thanks for the explanations.
    Ok, so I have written nonsense. Can someone point out the many errors I have made?

    The suffix "-арь" usially means the man who works with the subject.
    So, "псарь" = "пёс" + "-арь", is man who take care of the dogs. (Dogs for hunting in the rich houses.)

    -арь = -er
    (the same suffix)
