About The Breed

The Basset Hound is a very celebrated breed within the US, commonly used in TV and advertising. They bring people together in grand events across the nation. Bassets excel in tracking events and given the right training they do well with agility and obedience.

The Basset Hound has a lot of endurance and will enjoy long walks and exploring new and exciting scents with you. Their ability to sense scents and smells is second only to the legendary Blood Hound. Bassets love to track so they tend to wander.

The Basset Hound is short in stature and has no place to be in a hurry. This dog breed is well known for being laid back. This breed is characterized by a largely rounded skull, a broad muzzle, long low set ears, and heavy wrinkles along the face.
