BASSET HOUND CHARACTERISTICS AND TEMPERAMENT
Basset comes from the French word bas, meaning low or short. But Basset hound is not a small dog actually! It’s a medium sized dog and some would even consider Basset hound a large dog due to its long back and heavy body structure. As a very young puppy, you’ll be able to pick him up and cuddle him. But Basset shall quickly outgrow this stage.
It is an exceptional scent hound with over 220 million smell receptors i.e. the portion of their brains responsible for the sense of smell is 40 times that of a human’s. Basset hound can take in a big range of smells simultaneously and follow just one. Its ears help bring smells directly to its face while the dewlap helps trap them. Once they’ve targeted a scent, the dogs can follow it for impressive distances. Short legs enable the dog to follow the smell without craning his neck so Basset won’t tire as quickly as taller dogs.
Dogs with the soulful eyes and “weed” personality
They are very sociable, easy going dogs and they need to stay close to their human caregivers. It is not a breed to be kept outside all the time. The dog will most likely feel lonely and it could result in him becoming a constant barker. Basset hound is a good natured and affectionate dog breed that gets along well with children and other dogs. Due to his mild mannered and friendly personality, the Basset Hound does not make a very good guard dog. In Kuschelmonster Kennel Bassets live alongside Fila Brasileiro and they truly are a perfect match! Hound dogs were bred to hunt independently of their handlers. Independent breeds are usually more difficult to train. While basset hounds can swim they are not very good at it. Since they carry two-thirds of their weight in front and have short legs, swimming is not a natural sport for them. Bassets easily put on weight so owners should avoid overfeeding and provide them with a regular exercise.
