Hounds vary greatly in size. From the large Wolfhound to the short-legged Dachshund. Training them takes time and patience. They are a great family dog getting along well with the children and other pets.
Some hounds bay instead of barking. Not much grooming is needed but brushing them regularly is necessary. Bathing is needed only when necessary.
Fencing is needed for these dogs as they get lost very easily. All hounds have excessive energy and need lots of exercise.
