Bassets are fairly intelligent dogs, but they are not the easiest to train. Start training right off with puppies and do plenty of positive training to keep them interested. They enjoy tracking and hunting, even if only as a casual pastime.

  • Bassets are reasonably intelligent, but they arent one of the smartest breeds either. As their noses are always on the ground, they are perceived to be less intelligent than other breeds. They are the second strongest sniffer next to the Bloodhounds. Generally, Bassets takes longer to learn, especially in terms of housebreaking.
