Basset hounds are super cute and easy to adore. This means you might be tempted to bring one home as an addition to the family. They aren’t the easiest dogs to train though – far from it.
Basset hounds are not fast to learn things and they are likely to follow their sense of smell than any instructions you attempt to give them.
It takes a lot of patience as well as expertise to own and train a basset hound. Although they look like they’d make an easy pet, they really do need to be owned by experienced dog owners.
