About Basset Hound
Country of Origin, History of the breed

whose bodies lie low.

gate endear them to most dog lovers. Among all dog breeds, only the Bloodhound has a better sense of smell for tracking than the Basset Hound.

Temperament of the Breed
Their temperament is most genial
and they love to be in the company of others, be
it dogs or people. Affectionate and loyal, Basset
Hounds are good with children and will usually find
contentment with other pets. Because of their need
for companionship, they will not do well for long
periods without attention.
Bassets will take to the lead readily
but because they are a scent hound will keep their
nose to the ground and can be carried away with
pursuit. A strong hand is needed and proper restraints
required to make walking a pleasant experience for
both dog and owner. A secure, fenced yard is the
best answer for exercise and safety.
It is fine to keep the dogs in
an apartment. However, they are not very active
indoors. So, it is important that they are provided
taken outside and allowed to play for hours to their
heart’s content. They will not need a yard
for themselves in order to exercise but lot of opportunities
do need to be given for them to work out and stay
healthy and fit.
The Basset Hound is not very active
indoors. Hence it needs to be given plenty of exercises
to help it stay fit and slim. Apart from a minimum
daily long walk the dog should frequently be given
chances to run and play.
Their low-slung stature makes them
somewhat difficult for one adult to lift so consider
this before deciding if this breed is right for
The dog has got a smooth and shorthaired
coat. It is a constant shedder. This is easy to
keep clean, care for and groom. As grooming measure
the dog’s coat needs to be combed and brushed
with a firm bristle brush regularly. Washing/shampooing
of the dog must be done only when needed. Other
grooming measures to be undertaken include wiping
under the ear every week and time to time trimming
The basset hounds have extremely
long ears that are prone to developing even potentially
fatal ear diseases if allowed to dangle on the ground
or in food regularly. Overfeeding the dogs also
creates problems as the dogs may then become overweight
and place too great a load (of their bodies) on
their short-heavy legs and spine. This may lead
to lameness and also paralysis. The dogs are prone
to get bloated too. So, it is advisable to feed
the dogs two or three small meals a day in place
of one large meal.
