Exercise & Training

The Otterhound needs a lot of daily exercise in a safe area or on a leash, and if possible, frequent swimming. They need to be taken on a daily walk, swim or jog. It is not among the most responsive of breeds. Training the Otterhound takes patience, because it tends to be quite willful. The best results are achieved with a soft but consistent hand. Use the classic "Iron fist in a velvet glove" approach when training this dog.


To avoid matting, the Otterhound's weather-resistant coat should be combed or brushed at least weekly, but not clipped. It may need its beard washed more frequently. This breed is an average shedder.

Health Issues

Some lines are prone to hip dysplasia, thrombocytopenia, hemophilia and bloat. Elbow dysplasia may be a minor problem. It tends to gain weight easily.

Life Expectancy: 10-12 years
