Making a good house pet, this dog does very well with other animals and people. Being so friendly with people, including strangers, the Otterhound does not do well as a guard or watchdog. However, this dog does love to bay and alert at the slightest of noises.
Weekly brushing will be sufficient, however twice a week is best to keep this coat free of matting. If being used for show, the Otterhound should not have his coat clipped, as this dog should have a natural appearing coat. Beard must be washed frequently to prevent caking and debris.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.

Being very willful and independent, variety, consistency, and patience is the key with this friendly dog. This breed does not respond well to firm training, but softer and more patient techniques. 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 Otterhound puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
A large yard is best for the Otterhound. This dog loves to swim and run so he does require daily exercise. Long walks with his master suit this dog well, but he does best with a fenced in yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

How much are Otterhounds? I was just wondering what the usual price range is for an Otterhound. I am looking to get one next year and because they are not bred often it is hard to find the price quote.

The Otterhound is a beautiful breed of dog. They are not well known, so yes, it can be hard to find a breeder. Going to the Otterhound Club of your country of origin will help you find one. A reputable, knowledgeable and qualified breeder is the best way to get a healthy, well-bred Otterhound. The average price is normally between $1500.00 - $2000.00. Do your research about your breeder, as you will most likely be on a waiting list for a year or so.

Anonymous asked:
Is the Otterhound good with kids?



Otterhounds are devoted to their families and good with children. They are a friend to all other dogs, family pets, children and people in general. However, due to their hunting instincts they will chase non-canine animals.


These are sturdy and friendly dogs. They can be great family members, but tend to be a bit boisterous at times so small children and frail elderly can get knocked over.


Yes, but Otterhounds are very boisterous and tend to knock small ones down. They would be best around kids 6+.
