History


A newer hybrid, not much is available for this breed. Both parent breeds were originally used for the hunt. The Dachshund was known for flushing a badger from it\'s underground hole. It should be noted the Basset Hound has a keen sense of smell.

Maintenance


The Basschshund will shed it\'s coat, so regular slicker brushing is needed. The long floppy ears are prone to ear problems. There are solutions available to help keep the ear canal clean and dry. Since the feet are small on this hybrid, nail clipping a bit more than usual may be necessary.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
