Basset Hound

I purchased this puppy for my son as a gift for his birthday. His name originally was Romeo but my son felt Hank fit him much better! The whole process was wonderful with explanations all along the way. The breeder was excellent in sending pictures weekly which were forwarded to me. Hank is very loved and everything I expected. The breeder was excellent in sending pictures weekly which were forwarded to me. We love him ❤️

Basset Hound Characteristics

The Basset Hound is the iconic low-riding hunting dog. Their keen sense of smell makes them useful trackers out in the field, but they also become mellow family friends who take well to a laid-back lifestyle. Proper socialization and obedience training are necessary for ensuring a proper fit within a family or hunting lifestyle.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Willful

The Basset Hound has a long and rich history as a "Scent Hound,” which means they aren’t as agile as some hunting dogs, but bring intelligence and excellent tracking to the table. Instead of tracking prey and attacking it head-on, the Basset Hound uses its highly-advanced sense of smell to track its prey for miles until its human counterpart can do the catching.

The Basset Hound is often seen with a lemon, black, or blue coat.  Typically standing no taller than 14 inches at the shoulder and weighing in between 50-65 pounds, the Basset Hound is a stout and muscular creature. These dogs can be trained to be active hunters or mellow couch potatoes, but keeping the Basset Hound on a diet, either way, is important, as these dogs are prone to gaining a little too much excess weight when left to their own devices.

Ironically, these dogs can be a little bit tricky to train. Their breeding makes them excellent at following scents, but teaching them other skills can be an uphill battle! While they look hardy, the Basset Hound responds best to positive reinforcement and treats and has a tendency to shut down if voices are raised or physicality is used. They’re sweet and affectionate and highly attuned to their people’s moods. As with most breeds, early socialization and focused obedience training are recommended to build a great relationship with your hound dog.
