Every Basset Hound breeder, business or company knows to feed their Basset Hound puppies dry food mixed with wet food to moisten it, up to three times a day.

Basset Hound breeders and businesses have a long history of breeding Basset Hounds, since the breed goes way back to the 6th century in France. The original Basset Hound breeder’s name was a churchman called St. Hubert of Belgium who wanted to develop a dog that could hunt. They found their way to England, and to this day, pack hunting of small game still occurs in France and England.
A Basset Hound is a dog that Basset Hound breeders and businesses have been breeding for a very long time. Their main purpose was for hunting small game. They have exceptional noses - meaning they can pick up scents very easily. They have very long, floppy ears (which is one of their most outstanding physical characteristics), droopy eyes, and can weigh up to 70 pounds.
Your Basset Hound breeder or business will advise you to brush your Basset Hound on a daily basis as it’ll shed a lot. You also need to wash it every 6-8 weeks, or 3-5 weeks if it gets dirty easily. Its ears tend to build up a lot of wax, which you need to clean - you can wipe it with special ear wax wipes for dogs, and you should give it eye drops once a week to keep its droopy eyes clear and fresh. Also make sure its nails are trimmed!
Basset Hound breeders and businesses are proud to have raised Basset Hounds that have starred in movies such as 1997’s Seven Gates, 2004’s Spider-Man 2, 2011’s The Smurfs, 2012’s Seven Psychopaths, 2019’s The Secret Life of Pets 2, as well as TV shows like Columbo and Green Acres.
Basset Hound breeders and businesses will let their Basset Hound puppies out to play often. This particular breed is a scent dog that likes to roam around and follow scents, and enjoys exercise, even with their short legs. Basset Hounds tend to put on weight easily, so 60 minutes of daily exercise is important for them!
