Bloodhound, from the Dogs of the World

Everyone knows that Bloodhounds make great tracking dogs, but did you know they are also great pets? A Bloodhound dog’s laid-back temperament makes it a great dog to have if you have small children. Bloodhound dogs are also affectionate and gentle. They are large dogs though, and if you have small children you will need to make sure your children don’t get knocked over. Bloodhounds have large, dense bones and routinely weigh over 100 pounds. Because Bloodhounds have such a strong tracking instinct they don’t do well in obedience training.

If they are hot on the trail of a scent they may ignore commands, even if they have been through training classes. Like many large dogs, Bloodhounds have an expected life span of between ten and twelve years. A Bloodhound puppy can be a great addition to your family. Bloodhounds have easy to care for short, dense coats. Bloodhounds don’t require as much exercise as some of the more active breeds, making them a good choice for a family who has a hectic schedule.
