Basset Hound

Basset Hound Club. Midlands Branch

Basset Hounds are an ancient hound who hunt by scent.

As a family pet, they retain many of their working features in that they can be tenacious and self-willed. Being a pack hound, they generally like the company of both humans and other dogs.

As a puppy, exercise needs to be limited due to their growing bones but, from about a year old, they will need regular daily walks to maintain a healthy weight.
