The Grand Basset Griffon Vendéen is very family-friendly and has a protective instinct. Also, he’s not vindictive at all. He gets along well with children and adults. Once he’s acclimated to family, he’s a very loyal dog with a happy personality.
He is very suitable for families with other dogs. If you don’t have that much time, he can vent his energy with other dogs. He is also very friendly to strange animals. The GBGV needs a holder with assertiveness.
If he is not brought up consistently, he can act according to his own nose. In general, if you give them enough attention and proper training, they can make good family pets as well.
