The appearance of these short, long and heavy hounds is fully consistent with their character: the basset hounds are calm and extremely good-natured. Affectionate and loving, they love communication. They need from 18 months to three years to fully mature, and during this period of their life, their sense of humor, coupled with their “important” appearance, cannot help but make the most serious person laugh. Basset Hound is a dog full of energy, and she is not averse to fooling around. Therefore, in order to get an educated family member, constant strict discipline and systematic obedience training is required.
There is nothing worse than an uncontrollable, uncontrolled, spoiled basset. Remember, manners are not an innate quality, but the result of proper and timely training.
Each owner wants to see his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is a proper, complete and balanced diet. Even if you purchase the freshest and highest-quality products, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory you cannot determine the exact nutritional value of the food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special app that helps you evaluate how your pet’s diet meets its needs.
Proper nutrition in the first year of a puppy’s life largely determines how healthy and joyful your puppy will be in the future.

Conditions of detention
Basset Hound loves home comfort. However, he also feels great on the street, but on condition that there is no drafts in your favorite cozy doghouse – and you can always run out to play in the yard. It is important that the yard is securely fenced.
Bassett seems heavy and motionless, but in fact it is a very active dog. Frequent walks are needed both because of the tendency of the bassets to be full, and because of their enviable appetite.
