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.

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.

My Basset Hound is 12 weeks old, what is a good age to have him neutered and have his dew claws removed?

Basset Hounds are generally considered fully grown at a year to a year and a half old. It is in the best interest of your dog to keep him intact to the point of where he gets the growth hormones that are produced from his testicles for a reasonable amount of time. I would suggest that at the 8 month mark. If you plan on having his dew claws removed, then get your vet to do it at the same time as the neutering surgery. However, dew claws are very important and are there for a reason. Please do your research before removing them, a clipping once a week will keep them in check and they can save your dog's life if he/she falls through ice by accident.

This is a general dog question. I have a mutt/ mixed dog and I wanted to know if there was a test to see what breeds he is mixed with.

Yes there is. You can go online and buy Dog DNA tests on ebay or amazon, you can get a test from your vet and/or you can contact a company through the internet that does Dog DNA testing and they will send you a package to do the DNA test on your dog.

We have a wonderful Bassett hound who is healthy, and the very center of our lives who will be 14 years old in April. He is a little slower than he used to be, considering he never had the typical Bassett hound laid back personality. He would climb the children's playhouse ladder and go down the slide with them when they were young, and when they started school he would wait in the playhouse and come barreling down the slide and wagging to the fence gate to see them. Now he is waiting inside the back door. They are all teenagers with different schedules and Max is slowing some. My husband and I dread the day he will no longer be with us, and I wonder if it would be a good time to introduce a new, mature Bassett hound to our family. Not a puppy, but if so, which should we choose male or female, and what age? Will this be good or bad for Max?

You know your dog much better then anyone else does. Does Max enjoy the company of other dogs? Have you ever had another dog come to the house and Max act possessive or aggressive to the dog? If you think that Max would be fine with a new companion, then I would go for it. I would choose an adult dog, somewhere between 3-6 years old, so that you know that the dog will still have some years left when Max is gone. As for male or female, normally choosing a dog of opposite sex makes the easiest companions, but again that will be up to Max. Once you find a couple of dogs to choose from, let Max meet them and let him choose which dog he wants as a companion. Remember to do at least 2 meet and greets, one off your property and one on. As dogs will act differently off their property then on and when not in a home environment to being in a home environment.

I lived with a partner who had two Bassets, 1 a dream slept 23 hours a day ate, crapped and played, the other was a nightmare two long a story but a real character. He started to fade when the sweetheart was tragically run over and passed away. Many months later we got a puppy (an American Bulldog mastiff cross,an amazing dog sadly passed away) but what I am getting to is that having the other dog revitalized him and gave him a new lease on life. I think this gave him an extra 5 years, he lived a very good life but sadly he to passed away. Personally I think it all comes down to what you want. P.s. I think they are one the most loyal and loving dogs (and stubborn and unruly) I have had anything to do with, hence the reason for looking on this site.
