Overview
This is a naturally well-behaved breed making him the perfect household pet. The Basset Hound is very gentle, sweet, and loving. This breed is prone to howling and barking so he makes a good alarm dog, but is much too gentle to be a guard dog.
Character
The long ears of this rather lazy breed are sensitive, which makes him best for a life with older and more respectable children. The Basset Hound has the tendency to be stubborn, but never timid. Should never display signs of aggression, as this is a naturally fun loving and gentle dog.
Temperament
Affectionate, lazy, devoted, quiet, and peaceful, the Basset Hound does exceptionally well with a family. This breed loves children, and generally does well with other animals. They can be taught tricks, but tend to be stubborn so patience is key.
Care
Combing and brushing with a firm bristle brush should keep shedding to a minimum as this breed sheds constantly. Toenails should be trimmed regularly as this breed is lazy which can neglect the nails. Cleaning under the folds of skin works best, and the ears should be cleaned regularly.
Coat
The coat of the Basset Hound should always be short, never long. The coat is dense, hard, and smooth making it weather resistant. Hair should also always be straight and firm in texture.
Training
This can be a very sensitive breed so gentle and patient training is a must. Consistency works best with this short and stubborn breed. The Basset Hound has the tendency to go off sniffing completely disregarding his master so fun techniques work best.
Activity
Basset Hounds have the tendency to overeat therefore should be given plenty of exercise to keep him healthy. Normally a lazy breed, this dog should be taken on regulated walks and should be allowed a free roam in a safe, fenced in area.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Basset Hound puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Do all Basset Hounds drool?

1 Comment

Anonymous

For a short answer, yes. However, every dog is different and it is widely known that some Basset's will drool more then other's. Looking at the dam and sire of your puppy will be able to give you a good idea as to how much the puppy may drool as he/she matures. But be ready, as it is not always fool-proof. When you get a breed of dog that drools, you learn to love the little bits of slobber on everything, trust me.

Every dog is different and some Basset Hounds can have issues with their tail in which they never have the 'Standing Tall' tail. Your vet may be right, in which he should be able to do tests to figure out if your pup has Limber Syndrome or not. It also may just be time. Contact your breeder and ask for updates about the other puppies from the litter.

Contact a positive reinforcement trainer to help you stop the unwanted behavior in your Basset. As well, contact your vet and take her in for a check up to rule out any medical problems. She could be having pain around that time or during the night while you are asleep and so she is trying to tell you.

The basset hound is just that, a hound. When the find something of interest or that makes them think'this is interesting' they naturally howl. The fact that they howl at night could just be a moon thing rather than anything else, they are still pack animals.

Just like people, dogs can start getting grey hairs early too. If you are worried, contact your local vet and take your dog in for a check up. Other then that, don't worry about it.

Some bassets Turn grey early. I don't think its anything to worry about But could also be a hormone issue. I would have the levels checks to just be sure. But I have a female who tuned grey early

You should contact your breeder in terms of if your Basset Hound is of American, European or French lines. This way you have an idea on the standard size of your Basset. But on average, your Basset should be full grown in adult weight/height at 1 1/2 - 2 years old.

A Greeg-faced pet lover We have had a fat pocket burst on his side about two years ago on our Basset Hound. We have cleaned it,treated it,bandaged it,.. several times since and he keeps tearing it open during scratching it. It now has a fowl, decaying flesh smell on top of his natural basset Oder, and it breaks my heart because I'm out of thoughts. Please help! Clueless and breathless in La.

Go to the vet. Your vet is the only one capable in clearing away the dead flesh, cleaning the wound properly and stitching the wound back up. Then you dog will wear a cone for 7-10 days and he'll be fine.
