BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Bloodhound is a scent hound that originated in Belgium and is used for the sole purpose of their ability to smell. These dogs are known to be able to pick up scents that have been in an area for days! They are very popularly used as police dogs as they can track down criminals on the run with ease. This breed is over 1000 years old and has not changed to much in appearance over the years. The Bloodhound originally was one of a variety of colors but over time has been bred to be red or black and tan, which it is famously known as. The Bloodhound is known for their long floppy ears and the loose skin surrounding their face. They have a strong muscular body with long athletic legs. The Bloodhounds eyes are set further into the head and their muzzle is long with very loose drooping jowls.

COLOR
Solid red, black and tan, or liver and tan.

COAT
The Bloodhounds coat is glossy and short while the fur on their ears and head is soft and smooth.

PERSONALITY
The Bloodhound is an affectionate family dog that loves children. They are gentle and protective yet they can be absent minded when it comes to finding an interesting scent. Stubbornness is a very common characteristic of this breed so consistent training when it comes to basic obedience will be needed. Bright and well tempered, the Bloodhound gives the name 'mans best friend' a true meaning. This breed is loyal and reliable which is why they are used in the police force quite commonly. Their sense of smell is remarkably powerful and is justifiable in court!

CARE
The Bloodhounds coat is short and smooth, therefore maintaining their coat is quite easy. Either brush them down once to twice per week, or use a 'hound glove' which is perfect for this breed. It will bring their coat to a glossy finish while removing the dead fur. This breed is prone to ear infections because they have large floppy ears that give bacteria an easy place to multiply. They are also prone to Bloat, hip dysplasia and callused elbows if they constantly lay on hard flooring.

TRAINING
The Bloodhound will need an owner with some experience in training basic obedience. This breed can be very stubborn and in addition, as pups they can be rambunctious and opposing to their owner, making this procedure more difficult. Constant and positive training will be needed to break the 'teenage' rebellious streak. Patience is key with this breed as they can create conflict with their masters training methods, and they have been known to perfect getting their way.

ACTIVITY
The Bloodhound is a dog that will need to live an area with as much space as possible. A house with a backyard will be perfect as they will be too cramped in an apartment. They will need to be walked every day and these should last at least one hour. Trips to the off-leash dog park is another suggestion so they can run around safely and get the chance to socialize with their friends!
