Basset Hounds are iconic dogs that the French originally bred for hunting rabbits. The droopy-eyed and long-eared breed quickly became famous for its relaxed nature and affection towards children. In pop culture, the Basset Hound has been associated with English detectives like Sherlock Holmes, and it even featured on the packaging for the board game Cluedo. Today, Basset Hounds make excellent dog models and animal actors and take their place as one of the best dog breeds to use within filming and modelling due to their chilled-out temperament.
The Basset Hound is the epitome of relaxed and may take some creativity to fully train. This does however, not take away from the fact that they are an incredibly intelligent breed that favours social interaction with people and other animals. This makes them the perfect choice for modelling or acting projects making use of many animals and people as they are likely to keep their cool regardless of how busy things may get.
Combining their small stature with a deceptively long body, the Basset Hound is categorised as a medium to large dog. They are also very heavily boned and bulky which makes them surprisingly weighty. This is often partially due to their natural draw to food which can quickly lead them to becoming overweight when care is not taken.
