Basset Hound dog names:
Overview - Basset Hound
The name Basset comes from the French word bas, meaning low. And Basset Hounds certainly are low to the ground. Because their bones are heavy and they are muscular, they usually weigh 50 to 65 pounds although they typically are no more than 14 inches tall at the highest point of the shoulder. In reality, they are big dogs on short legs. Their short-legged appearance is the result of a form of dwarfism called achondroplasia. Despite his large size, the Basset believes he's a lap dog and will do his best to fit in yours.
Basset Hound training
Basset Hounds are hard to train unless you can persuade them that they want to do what you want. They usually do tasks only if they are offered some treats. You'll definitely need much patience and persistance. Since they are emotionally sensitive, positive reinforcement training methods work best for them.
