LIFE WITH BASSET HOUNDS
Basset hound puppies are friendly, outgoing, and perfect for families. It is very rare to find an aggressive Basset hound pup. Occasionally, we come across a pup that is more shy. Lots of attention, patience, and love will give a shy pup the confidence to shine!
Puppies are big eaters and Basset hounds are no exception. Monitoring eating habits as they age will help control obesity in your Basset.
All puppies are clumsy and with their long, drooping ears, Basset hound puppies find themselves stumbling easily. They will literally fall over their ears! Being mindful of steps and stairs will keep your pup safe and happy! Stonewall Farm Bassets does not suggest keeping your Basset hound around in-ground pools. Their short stature doesn't make graceful swimmers like other long-legged breeds. Normal puppy-proofing is a good idea for any new puppy. Keep household cleaners and electrical cords out of chewing reach. Stabilize heavy furniture and objects for optimum puppy play.
People often asking about Basset hound barking. While they do have a louder, booming bark due to the hound breeding, Bassets are not more prone to being vocal than any other dog. Being mindful of your area is suggested only because they are, as a breed, louder than other dog breeds.
