If you’re looking for an easygoing, good-natured breed, the Basset Hound is for you! These dogs make excellent family pets and get along with children, other dogs, and other household pets.
They tend to be stubborn and slow-moving. Once they catch a scent, they’re difficult to deter. This could result in them wandering off and becoming lost. They also have a loud bay and they tend to drool.
Despite their slow gait, Basset Hounds need daily exercise to ensure they stay fit. A short leash walk or some playtime in the back yard is usually sufficient.
Basset Hounds only require minimal grooming. However, it’s important to regularly clean the wrinkles on their face so they don’t develop a foul odor.
