I have 2 basset hounds and they are very gentle and sweet, but are extremely stubborn and training was slow and difficult. Bassets will do anything for treats but without a constant treat, they probably won't. If they catch scent of something, they will leave you and pursue the scent rather than listening to return. For a just a pet and companionship, absolutely. Work and service, not so much.
