Overview
The Bloodhound is one of the oldest breeds to date. Where this breed originated is unknown, however it was perfected by monks in Belgium. This breed was then brought by the Normans into England and into the United States. The Bloodhound is a hunter, however loves tracking most. This is a scent hound and loses interest in whatever he is doing quickly. This breed is commonly used as both companion and tracker, tracking down game, criminals, and lost children.
Character
The Bloodhound is shy, placid, however can be sociable if given the time to warm up. This breed can be wary of strangers, but should never show aggressive tendencies. The Bloodhound can be very sensitive to the tone of ones voice making him rather difficult to train, however he is very eager to please his master and does extremely well. This breed tends to wail at the scent of something strange, however does not bark as many other hounds do.
Temperament
Bloodhounds are very gentle, loving, and have a very sweet disposition. However, he can be very shy and reserved so proper socialization at puppyhood is definitely necessary. This breed should not be trusted around small animals, however can do very well with other dogs if trained and socialized properly. The Bloodhound does remarkably well around children and can be very tolerant, however the ears of this breed are sensitive so supervision is necessary.
Care
The Bloodhound doesn't require much grooming coat wise, however under the folds of skin should be cleaned regularly to avoid itchy or dry skin. A quick and regular brushing should be performed to remove any dead or loose hair, as this breed can seasonally be a very heavy shedder. The Bloodhound has very long and droopy ears, which should be cleaned regularly to avoid any painful and/or infected ears.
Coat
The Bloodhound has a very short, and hard coat that should cover the entire body and should be close lying. The hair should be softer on the head and ears while the remaining hair should be harsh and coarse. This breed requires little grooming, however the ears should be cleaned regularly to prevent any problems that could arise.
Training
The Bloodhound is extremely intelligent and eager to please his owner however can be very stubborn making training a definite task. Gentle handling and speaking is a must as this breed can be very sensitive, but consistency is also necessary if this breed is to thrive and learn. Bloodhounds can be very slow to house train and train period, however if proper training exercises are followed on a regular basis, this breed should excel and become a wonderful family and/or hunting companion.
Activity
The Bloodhound needs regular opportunities to romp and play, preferably in a large fenced in area. The Bloodhound has the tendency to overeat so regular exercise is a must if this breed is to stay healthy and active. At least 90 minutes per day is required to keep this dog healthy, happy, and in shape. Bloodhounds do best with acreage and a large area to roam in however can do well if they have an owner that has a regular exercise regimen.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Bloodhound 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.

The Bloodhound can be good with children if the puppy is socialized with children at a young age. But please remember that those long, silky ears are very, very sensitive and they do not like them pulled/tugged on. So the child or children MUST be supervised around the puppy/dog at all times and taught to treat the puppy/dog with respect.

The Bloodhound breed needs a lot of socialization if you want your dog to be good around small dogs. This breed has a high prey drive and small dogs can be seen as prey if the dog is not socialized properly. Over-all, this breed is not generally good around small animals or small dogs.

I'm a person that has been intrigued with the bloodhound breed. I have had several dogs' throughout my life time. The kids are about to the age of being independent so I'm looking for a companion to walk, run, and hunt with. I have a 3/4 acre lot 2000sq ft home in north Muskegon. Would this be sufficient for this breed?

Hello. Bloodhounds are 100% DOG. We have two litter mates, both are 6 years old now. If I knew then what I know NOW... I would have waited until our children were older and would not adopt a bloodhound into the family with other pets! They are a handful, and it sounds like your cup is already running over! They will be a great dog for you when you are ready! Love my hounds:-)

I disagree with the first answer. we bought a bloodhound puppy, she's now two, and we already had a 3 year old small/medium dog the house. Our 1 year old granddaughter stayed with us for a few weeks and she was great with her. the dog did turn around too fast and the baby wobbled a little. But our female bloodhound let her lay all over her and climb on her without incident. And our dog was 1 at the time. From our experience, they do great with other animals and kids of all ages. She just wants to lick and sniff everyone lol.

Our bloodhound was precious. She was not only good with children, she loved them. The kids climbed on her, slept with her, ate with her..my niece and friens baby boy were with our dog from before they were a year old...also, we had another dog already in our home, and several dogs at family functions and Daisy wanted nothing more then to play with them..Unfortunately our little girl passed at 9 years old from cancer. If I ever get over that loss, I would actually consider getting another.

Depends on how bloodhounds are raised. We have a male blood hound he has grown up with my daughter. We call him the baby sitter. Best dog ever! He sleeps with her and takes every step she takes! If they are raised and trained correctly they make wonderful family dogs!

1 Comment

All dogs have their cycle an average of 3 weeks. But if your dog is spayed, she will not have her cycle. By spaying your dog, you eliminate three cancer's she could potentially get. Unless she is of impeccable breeding and has passed all health and temperament clearances, spaying your dog is the best thing to do.

The Bloodhound is known to be calm indoors, but on average, puppies in general are lively and active. The average 'calm down' time for a Bloodhound is between 1 1/2 - 2 years of age. But that can differ from dog to dog.

She seemed to be tied up in a small yard all day and crated at night. Poor girl didn't even know her name. My issue is the house training. We have had her for almost 2 months and she still will go in the house too often. She will be outside for a long while, come in and within 15 min. go on the floor. She has been to the vet and all is great. I realize they are a stubborn breed and with being tied up to go whenever she may take longer. Just wondering if anyone might have something I'm missing. LOL She is a true sweetheart and blends well with our family inspite of the HT and counter surfer!!! Thanks!

AKC says anything after 9 months of age can be a registered sire. In the LARGE BREED WHY NOT WAIT TILL HE IS A MATURE MALE? The bones structure is not developed till 24 to 30 months of age. Don't you need to see what kind of dog he will turn out to be? Not every dog is stud dog material. Also what about having your bloodhound's health clearances at 24 months. He more than likely will have bad hips and you are breeding that into your puppies.

The easiest way I have found to help a skittish animal is not to rush them. It will take time. If you try to push the issue you may make her more skittish. Get some special treats and try to get her to take it from you or off the ground close to you all while talking in a low calm reassuring tone. Good luck.

Take her (and YOU) to doggie training! There, your bloodhound will be exposed to things that may make her fearful and you will learn how to deal as well. Skittish pups turn into skittish dogs that may bite when they don't know how to deal with uncertain situations.

Ask the vet, the puppies vary. I am a vet so it depends on the way he is growing and how he looks for his size. Also since bloodhounds are from everywhere around, it could be from a gentic bond.

Hi. We have 2 bloodhounds. one lives in the house. we've never had a problem with that. We also have a beagle mix in the house. neither bloodhound have been aggressive toward dogs or small children. they play a lot but she has never hurt the smaller dog. I would say you'd be fine with them together just keep an eye on them at first.

It is great that you are active because a Bloodhound requires daily romping. Be careful when introducing the cats to the Bloodhound. Bloodhounds are in the giant size but they respond well to soft voices. Bloodhounds are prone to blot so use care when feeding them. Two smaller meals are better then one big meal. Since you have raised children already you will enjoy this breed as they are intelligent and playful.

As a dog grows through the first year to two years of its life improper health or feeding can keep them from reaching their full range of body weight and height. The best way to determine age is by a visit to the vet to have the dogs teeth checked. Daily romping will help with that puppy phase.

Nice and lazy lol. We are ready to get a puppy and would like to get a bloodhound. My uncle is into hounds (he has one of each kind) and he warned me that bloodhounds are not very good pets. He uses his hounds for hunting and they are CRAZY. I understand that they are very active and I have no problem with that but he is telling me that they are very aggressive, not good around kids(our youngest is 15)that I will have to bury wire near the fence cuz they dig etc. My question is Is it in their blood to be that way (if it's true) or if we are more laid back will the pup be that way ?

I dont know what the heck your uncle is talking about. I have been raising Bloodhounds for 27 years and in all the bloodhounds i have owned or produced or bought I have seen one that has been aggressive and he was only aggressive when he had a female in heat with him. They are great with kids they adore them. They are good in the house can be taught to do just about anything.

Dogs can be products of their environment. You put any dog in with a pack of hounds on the hunt and they will act crazy too. We have raised Bloodhounds for seven years and found them to be awesome pets for older children, say 10 years and up. Simply due to their size and clumsiness. Bloodhounds are intelligent and want to please you for affection. They are not aggressive what so ever. I dare say your previse dog was perfect because your family is balanced with they right amounts of love and structure. You can also challenge them by hiding their favorite toys and allowing them to find the toys. Just exercise that pup daily and he/she will be fine.

usually a female of any breed will only eat a pup if something is wrong with them, even if they look normal there could be something wrong on the inside.

Your bloodhound is probably wormy. We got a 6 week old girl with the same problem and she was full of worms. Go to the pet store and get a wormer that treats all worms and follow the directions and he should be ok. Always check with your vet but thats what I did and within a day she was soo much better. Good luck : )

Your bloodhound could need to be wormed and would do Panacur for 5 days. However if you purchased him from out of town then the water change can make his stools loose, also a change in food. If giving treats he is not used to or that are to rich. This is awful young to get a pup should be at least 8 weeks before leaving for a new home, so could be stress even.

The change in moving can cause loose stools also. My Bloodhounds will get loose stools when under stress as puppies. You need to look for blood in the stools and have your vet check the dogs out if you find blood. Also check how much you are feeding your dog. You can over feed the little guys.

3 months old is still very young most dogs are still growing for the first 2 years and this is especially true of large breed dogs. I breed bloodhounds and found that they love to chew on just about anything even as adults. I would suggest giving your puppy a large roasted bone as a chew toy and if you catch him chewing on something he should not be redirect him to the bone making it clear that what he was chewing on is off limits I would not ever give something like old shoes or stuffed animals to your puppy because it will be confusing to him as to which shoe's he can chew on so I would make sure that anything that is not allowed is firmly reinforced by not letting him chew on them ever.

Bloodhounds can be very stubborn while training so it is important that your puppy knows who is boss. Training can take months so it is best to be kind but firm and always make sure if your puppy in jumping on the couch and this is an off limits spot that he is immediately removed from the couch. If you are patient, kind and firm you will in the end have a very loyal and obedient dog.

I am a bachelor and a farmer I just moved into my house and live on a 7 acre lot with trees buildings etc. Its a farm home in nebraska. I was wondering if bloodhounds would be a good choice for me beings it would be an outdoor dog and all the smells. Can I train him to always come back after a scent he picks up? Thank you!

A bloodhound can be a great choice for the country they need lots of room to run and play but I would not suggest letting on run free. They are natural trackers and will track anything that they find interesting. You should keep them in a fenced yard or large kennel run and only take them out in the woods on a leash. Once a bloodhound has been lost out in the woods for a few days they become very skittish of people and my not even let their masters come close this is survival mode and if they track themselves away they may never come back. I am not saying that you could not train one like you are thinking but it would be very hard. I have bloodhounds and I keep them is a 6' fenced yard that is over an acre of land. I would research the breed a lot before getting one if you have never had one before

All breeds of dogs go into heat every 6 months and it can last up to around 7 to 8 days

Females go into heat about every 6 to 7 months depending on the female. They are in heat for a total of 28 days, however will usually only breed for 7 of those days. They are fertile when blood changes from red to pinkish in color. They will usually have their first heat around 8 to 12 months old depending on the dog.

Like to address that ALL breeds come into heat every 6 months. BASENJI only comes in season 1 time a year. By rule 98% come in season in the fall. You will find a few with a werid spring season or mid summer heat but by rule FAll.
