“Why a Bloodhound?” It’s probably the single most asked question we get about our pup. We don’t really have a good answer, other than I love hound dogs (we had a beagle growing up) and how could we resist a face this cute?
Besides being completely adorable, hounds can definitely be stubborn. Henry can be really bull-headed once he gets set on something (jumping on the couch – which we don’t allow, trying to steal items off the counter, etc). But for all his stubbornness he definitely looks to us for direction and wants to please us.
So I know we need to just keep at his obedience training, and be persistent. With a dog who could potentially reach 140lbs we need him to be well-behaved. Already, at 6 months and 70lbs, he can pull me around when we don’t have him in his Easy Walk harness.
We keep joking that a baby will seem easy after this! At least a baby won’t be trying to eat the couch (we hope)! But for all his quirks and bratty antics we love this puppy a whole lot.
