Overview
The Otterhound is loyal, dependable, sweet, and bold. This breed makes a wonderful companion to children. This breed tends to chase smaller animals, but does well with cats in the family, and does exceptionally well with other dogs. The Otterhound is generally friendly with all people.
Character
Otterhounds are very cheerful and jolly, making them a joy to be around. They are friendly, intelligent, but can be willful and independent making training a bit more difficult.
Temperament
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.
Care
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.
Coat
The Otterhound has a long double coat. The outer coat of this breed should be dense, coarse, rough and crisp giving a shaggy appearance, while the undercoat should be soft and wooly.
Training
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.
Activity
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.

All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

They don't drool but they have beards that catch water and saliva. Right after drinking and eating their beard will be wet.

Otterhounds are probably one of the most beautiful species of dog I've ever set my eyes on, but sadly, they are very rare to find unless you reserve them. Why are they endangered anyways?

The breed is not considered endangered, they are a rarer breed of dog because they are more popular where they originated from in North-West England. There are many different types of hunting breeds and every hunter picks a specific breed for a reason. When the Otterhound was brought over to North America, the Labrador Retriever was already there working as a hunting dog. There are breeder's in North America trying to bring the popularity of the Otterhound up. However, because there are so many breeds of dogs, the Otterhound is not fit for everyone. If you love the breed, become an advocate for the breed. Rescue an Otterhound or purchase a puppy and educate people about how wonderful they are.

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.
