Ownership
Help reduce the number of Bracco Italiano 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 Bracco Italiano's bark like a hound dog all day?

The Bracco Italiano breed was made for hunting. So they do have an impressive bark/howl. But they are not known for doing it all day long at nothing. However, they are known to get bored and will bark/howl at nothing if they are. They will also alert you and your neighbor's to any other people in the area, animals and anything else they feel they need to alert you about. It is up to you, the owner, to train the dog what is to be alerting too and what is not.
