The Basset Hound is known to be a stubborn dog.
Therefore, training can be difficult. This dog needs a very
patient yet consistent trainer! They are wonderful family pets
and get along well with children. Bassets do best as country
dwellers (as they love to roam) however, they do just as well
in the city as long as they get their daily walks.
These dogs do NOT like to be alone and are known to howl
until company arrives. The Basset Houndis a dog of great
character. They are simply adorable and make wonderful
companions! If you would like to become the proud parent of
