#4 – There Are Many Types Of Hound Dogs
Hounds vary widely in appearance as well as in temperament. They all have hunting in their blood, but most love to relax and unwind at day’s end. If you are looking for a Hound that is aloof and not too demonstrative, desert Hounds, such as the Pharaoh and Saluki, are good choices. Basenjis and Dachshunds are known to be bold, confident and feisty little dogs and are sometimes compared to Terriers.
Beagles are known for their friendliness, while Coonhounds have natures that are sweet and laid back. While plenty of hunters are partial to Hounds, people with an athletic bent, such as hikers and runners, can provide a Hound with many opportunities for sniffing around and chasing. Because Hounds have a strong insect to chase, they require restraints, such as leashes and strong fencing.
