As befits a real hound, the Basset Hound is absolutely not aggressive. Of course, if you try, you can unbalance any dog, but in general, the breed will not grumble and bite. Moreover, the Basset Hound is able to tolerate a number of other dogs and, much less often, cats. Naturally, no one will oblige to transfer patience to all animals, without exception, a basset. But if you introduce the dog in advance to the rest of the domestic fauna, he will not terrorize them either.
Representatives of this breed categorically do not want to give up their favorite habits, preferring to change the lifestyle of their own owners as a compromise. For example, all Basset Hounds are tightly “hooked” on comfort, so if the pet has chosen a specific place in the apartment, it is almost impossible to move its shelter to another part of the house. The solitude and loneliness of dogs are also not happy, so if for some reason you did not take the basset hound with you, and he really wanted to, get ready for small dirty tricks. They also love to lie on sofas, from the first months of life, almost reflexively climbing onto the master’s bed. Moreover, a secret passion for soft feather beds persists even among those individuals who, it would seem, have been weaned from this habit. Left the house for an hour? You can be sure that the Basset Hound will not miss the opportunity to take advantage of your absence and relax on your own bed.
