Devoted, Howling, and Drooling: The Bloodhound Personality

When you are looking for a puppy, you should look for a happy puppy. A puppy that wags its tail, comes running to you, shows playfulness, and is curious should prove to be a well-adjusted puppy. If you see a puppy that shows signs of being shy or crouches when you approach them, you should avoid such a puppy. Puppies should be happy and adventurous. A Bloodhound's personality is important to consider when looking for a good family pet. There are some puppies or even older dogs that may have a disposition and personality that is unwanted for a family dog. [...]

Should You Own a Female or a Male Bloodhound

When one considers buying a puppy, one has to consider whether to have a male or female. The female is a bit smaller than the male, but this does not make much of a difference when you consider a male or female since both are still fairly large. Things to consider before getting a puppy are: do you plan on breeding? Are you going to use the puppy for tracking? Are you going to have the puppy spayed or neutered? And, what are the temperament of a female and a male and how does that apply to your lifestyle? [...]

The Brussels Griffon has a naturally suspicious temperament, making him overly aware of strangers and dogs he doesn't know. When approached by a stranger or anyone not in his immediate family, the Brussels Griffon will likely react strongly; and if this behavior is not curbed, it could lead to more serious and detrimental behaviors.

While a Brussels Griffon may seem like the perfect, tiny, family dog, he is not a good match for young families, no matter how early the children are introduced to him or how careful they are around him.

Cairn Terrier as a Pet

Norwegian Elkhounds and Biting Problems

Dogs are very much like children and need to be educated about how to behave properly and what behaviors are unacceptable. If a puppy isn't trained, then problem behaviors will persist into adulthood and worsen. Not only will the behaviors themselves increase in frequency, but an adult dog's actions can be much more dangerous than the actions of a small puppy. One of the dog behaviors that can get out of hand if not curtailed early on is biting.No dog behavior is inherently "bad." Dog behavior is the result of both the natural forces that shaped wolf pack behavior and the selective breeding humans performed in order to create breeds suitable for specific jobs. [...]

You will have to work with your Coton at least several times a week to ensure that it can successfully perform tricks on command. [...]
