The Basset Hound
The Basset Hound is a hunting dog. He was bred for hunting small game. He is a scent hound. He follows ground-held scent or that of trodden foliage that has been bruised by the game in retreat.
The Basset Hound is used primarily for hunting rabbit although he is successful in hunting other small game. The Basset's long ears were developed to stir up the scent for his large nose to smell. The folds of skin under the chin, called the dewlap, are for trapping and holding the scent.
The Midland Basset Hound Club would like to thank the sponsors of our Club shows:
