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.

Does your Basset Hound bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Basset Hound puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

My Basset is a little over a year old and I been noticing his stool is very soft towards the middle to the end of the day. In the morning it seems its ok, I have been feeding him CANIDAE Grain Free PURE Dry Dog Food(fresh lamb). I have also been boiling some white rice to give him with his food to see if that helps. What are you owners feeding your Basset Hounds? Maybe I can try a different food? Any help will be very appreciated!

The brand of food you are feeding your dog is just fine it is a grain-free dog food and great for him. Stop feeding him rice, as that will only make his tummy more upset. It is possible your dog is dehydrated, as that promotes diarrhea. Make sure your dog drinks plenty of water, add some chicken stock to the water to get him to drink more. If it is still loose after a couple more days, I would make a vet appointment.

What would be a good dog collar for a Basset Hound seeing they have lots of loose skin in the neck area?

I have been giving my Basset NexGard for flea and tick treatment. Just one chewable a month is like $25. I think that's way too much money. I really don't like to use the tick and flea collar, so I would like to know what all you Basset Hound owners are using for treatment?

I get the largest dog size of advantage and split it up so that one dose give three doses for my Basset. The advantage flea treatment costs the same whether you get it for a little dog or a big dog. If you google "flea treatment splitting dose" you can find that the per pound dosage is about 0.1ml/pound.

Is it true that if I wash my Basset more often to minimize his smell, it will make his skin or coat smell more? If so what can I do to make him smell a little better?

Yes, the more you wash your dog the more oils the dog's skin will secrete. What you need to do is wash your dog with a de-ordorizing shampoo. I wash my dogs with Head and Shoulder's human shampoo. Never have my dogs smelt better, their coat is shiny and soft, their skin is clean and the natural oils are not stripped away and they don't get dandruff.
