With a unique scent, Bloodhound learns the smell of a specified target for several kilometers and after many days. He loves children and plays with them for hours, but given the size and strength of the dog, never leave her with a child without adult supervision.

    It lends itself to training well, but in a peculiar way. The landlord will have to work hard to achieve obedience. He learns a lot, works enthusiastically for praise and dainty, but to force submission unconditionally is impossible.

    Bloodhound is a fairly large breed. Therefore, from early childhood, be sure to teach him to walk on a leash nearby.

    Bloodhound Care and Maintenance

    Taking care of the bloodhound is not difficult. This is a short-haired breed with a hard coat. Shedding is seasonal 1-2 a year.

    Bathing: every week with shampoo for shorthair breeds, or as it gets dirty. Dry well after bathing with a hard towel and rub the coat to a shine.

    1 time a week (during molting daily) comb with a special rubber glove, so you will remove dead hair and dust, improve blood circulation and give your pet an excellent massage.

    Drooling: a major problem for humans. Bloodhound from those breeds in which hang: skin, eyelids, ears and drool. As soon as he shakes his head, drooling fly in different directions and splatter others. True, loving owners try not to notice the little things, they always have a towel on them to wipe their saliva.

    Ears: always have to wash after a walk, it is on them that he will bring dirt to the house. Inspect daily, ventilate well, if necessary, wipe the inside with a cloth moistened with warm water. A healthy ear is pink in color, without excess sulfur and an unpleasant odor.

    Teeth: Once a week, clean with a paste for dogs with a brush or a special nozzle on the finger. After walking, always inspect the mouth, in its many folds you will not immediately find the "prey" that he brought home. To avoid tartar formation, include fresh tomatoes in your diet.

    Claws and paws: 1 time per month, cut with a nail clipper for large breeds. Smooth sharp edges and burrs with a nail file. It is worth accustoming to the procedure from an early age. After a walk, inspect the pads for damage, wipe with a damp cloth. In winter, rub olive oil into the pads to prevent cracks.

    Eyes: Inspect regularly. Once a week to prevent souring, wipe with a soft cloth dipped in warm tea leaves. Eyes of a healthy bloodhound, shiny without marked tearing or souring. If redness or profuse sourness, be sure to contact your veterinarian for help.

    Parasite medications (ticks, fleas): be sure to treat your pet with them once a month. Which are better (Advantix, Front Line, etc.) your veterinarian will advise you. Never neglect this procedure, as a tick bite poses a threat to health and life. The ixodid tick is a carrier of the dangerous pyroplasmosis disease, which is deadly for dogs. The drug is applied to the withers, closer to the head, in order to avoid licking it. Do not bathe for 10 days, on the first day do not let the children pet their pets.

    Contain: the breed is best in a country house with a spacious courtyard and garden, where it runs freely, frolics, sniffs interesting smells, hides in the shade in the summer heat. He needs constant movement and search for prey, and locked in a city apartment, he begins to play pranks and get bored. Therefore, if you are a resident of a metropolis, work from morning to evening, think a few times before starting a bloodhound. Perhaps she is not for you.

    Walk: Bloodhound is necessary 2 times a day, morning and evening, before meals. The walk lasts 1.5 to 2 hours. Take this time with physical activity, training of teams, the main thing is to let the energy out. It is better to walk on a leash, if possible on a fenced area. Its peculiarity is that, smelling an interesting smell, he will completely switch to it, follow him, not paying attention to the owner’s commands.

    Bloodhound food

    For a puppy of a bloodhound, for the correct formation of skeletal and muscle mass, it is necessary to provide proper and high-quality nutrition. At the age of 2 - 2.5 years they are considered adults, before that, overload is strictly contraindicated for them.Games can be active not debilitating.

    The basic rule is not to overfeed your pet, and give the opportunity to burn calories.

    Bloodhound is prone to bloating, so experienced breeders offer a simple but effective way to prevent this, place the bowl at an angle, and divide the serving in two steps.

    As you grow older, the number of meals decreases, and the diet changes.

    • At the age of one month they feed 5-6 times with an interval of 3 hours.
    • At 2 - 4 months they feed 4-5 times with an interval of 3-3.5 hours.
    • From 4 to 7 months 3 to 4 times every 4 hours.

    2. Ready dry feed
    3. Mixed

    The main thing is not to mix feeding with natural food and dry food, this is bad for the gastrointestinal tract.

    That's all for now. As soon as there will be any news, I will immediately write about it.

    Standard and breed description

    Bloodhounds are the heaviest and largest of the hounds. They have an excellent sense of smell and are used not only for hunting, but also for searching for missing people, and for finding drugs. Sometimes they are taken as a companion by ordinary people.

    Appearance is defined by the standard:

    • Height up to 68 cm, weight up to 54 kg. Bitches are less than males by an average of 6 cm and 6 kg. Weight should be in harmony with growth, the dog itself should look proportionate.
    • The head is long and narrow, with a square profile. Slightly flattened laterally, occipital protuberance very clearly visible.
    • The nose is black or dark brown, oval, with wide nostrils. The transition from the forehead to the nose is smooth and almost not pronounced.
    • Eyes are oval, dark brown or light brown up to amber - it all depends on the color. The eyelids fit well.
    • The lips are pigmented in the same color as the nose. Soft, fleshy, upper lip hanging over the lower lip, noticeable bruises in the corners of the lips, which, going down, form a suspension on the chest. Females are less pronounced.
    • Jaws strong, scissor bite.
    • The ears are thin, long, covered with short velvety fur. If you lift them, reach your nose. Set very low, at eye level or even lower. May twist slightly.
    • The neck is long, muscular, but this is not visible behind the suspension.
    • The withers are almost not expressed, the back is straight and strong, the lower back is slightly convex, the croup is straight. The chest is oval and wide, the stomach is almost not raised.
    • The tail is long, tapering towards the end. It is covered with wool about 5 centimeters long.
    • The paws are parallel, the muscles themselves are strong and strong.

    The movements are light, uniform, the legs are placed clearly in one line when running. It is important that the hound can run for a long time without showing signs of fatigue.

    Color

    The coat is short, dense, provides resistance to any environmental conditions, except in severe frost. Acceptable colors are three:

    • Black and tan. It happens in two versions. Dogs with a “cloak” have a red tan on their face, chest and paws, the rest is all black. In dogs with a saddle, black color spreads over the spine, but the rest of the body is all in the tan.
    • Hepatic with tan. They also have a “cloak” and a “saddle”, but instead of black a light red color.
    • Reds. Color varies from light red to dark red.

    Allowed white color on the legs, chest and tail. This will not lead to disqualification, but judges can withdraw points for this.

    Pros and cons

    Any breed has its pros and cons. The advantages of bloodhounds are:

    • Friendliness. It is pleasant to talk with a dog, it will never harm a person consciously, always ready for games and for being scratched, stroked and undead.
    • Great sense of smell. For hunters - an indispensable feature. For everyone else - the opportunity to teach a pet tricks and play games with him like "find a hidden acquaintance in this huge park."
    • Nice appearance. Many people like dogs that are even seemingly friendly, and the bloodhound is just such.
    • Easy care. Bloodhounds are a healthy breed, therefore it is easy to care for them.

    But the pluses inevitably come with the minuses:

    • Hunting habits. Tracking down a pet that smelled an unfamiliar and interesting odor and ran in search of a source can be difficult. And there is no question of releasing him from the leash where squirrels or hares are found.
    • Credulity. Bloodhounds love all people, therefore it is impossible to raise a protector from them. Training courses will only break the psyche. Despite its size, it is absolutely harmless to humans.
    • A lot of weight. A male weighs about the same as a girl of average height and slightly less than an adult male. If it is not brought up correctly, a walking catastrophe will turn out, which can drag the owner behind him, no matter how he resists.

    In addition, dogs are stubborn and are not advised to beginners. You need to understand the basics of training and dog psychology well in order to prove to the Bloodhound that authority and the most formidable beast in the house are not at all. Moreover, this must be done gently, affectionately and convincingly. Aggression does not affect him.

    Maintenance and care

    For the dog to live a long happy life, minimal care is required:

    • Ear cleaning. The only disease these hounds are prone to is otitis media in all cases. Because once in two days they lift their ears, look inside and evaluate the condition. If the color is pink, there is no redness, there is no strong odor either, there is not much sulfur and dirt - they erase the excess with a cotton pad and leave until the next examination. If there are disturbing symptoms, go to the veterinarian.
    • Claw cutting. Every two weeks, the claws are trimmed and gently equalized with a nail file.
    • Hair care. Once every two weeks the dog is combed - more often it makes no sense, and if combed less often, short thick hair will be everywhere in the house. Wash as necessary if it gets into a puddle. Necessarily with a special shampoo - human is too aggressive. Bloodhound does not need a haircut.
    • Teeth cleaning. To prevent tartar from growing on them, they clean them once a day or once every two days, plus they feed the pet with special treats that can be nibbled.
    • Walks. They walk with a bloodhound for three to four hours a day, and it is advisable to choose unfamiliar routes and look for places with interesting smells. You can play catch-up or run racing. It is advisable to walk not in the streets, but in the nearest park. Once a week to go on the nature and walk there.
    • Intellectual load. Just walking, just running these dogs is boring. They need to be given tasks to search, to work out teams, to throw puzzles. Let the dog go to look for the owner by smell. Let him look for a hidden thing in the house or on the street. Let him figure out how to open the door or climb into the drawer. The main thing is that he should not be bored.

    Bloodhounds are perfectly adapted to slush, mud and dank autumn. But severe cold is not good for them, because in winter they put the dog in overalls, and in the city they also look for shoes for him so that the paws do not corrode the cover against the ice.

    What to feed

    They are fed, like all other dogs, either dry food or natural food.

    Dry feeds are exclusively premium, in which real meat comes first, not soy and beans. Something like Akana.

    In natural feed, lean meat scalded with boiling water predominates. In second place in terms of porridge - rice, buckwheat, millet. Vegetables, fish, eggs, dairy products rich in calcium are optionally added. As a treat, they give dried offal, pieces of fruit, wheat crackers.

    Like most hounds, bloodhounds do not know the measures with regard to food. This is useful in training - treating is the best motivation, for it the pet will do everything. But the feeding is not very, the dog can easily fatten.

    Therefore, food is clearly controlled, goodies are taken into account, food is never left in a bowl after breakfast or dinner is over. No handouts from the table. Nothing sharp, fatty, sweet.

    Proper nutrition is the key to a dog’s long life.

    How much is a puppy

    Bloodhounds are not popular in Russia, because there are few nurseries that breed them. This affects the price of the dog:

    • a puppy of a pet class with which there is nothing to do at exhibitions costs approximately 30,000 or 40,000 rubles,
    • a puppy of the breed class, which can be allowed to breed, but which is unlikely to win prizes, costs about 60,000,
    • and premium, that is, children of the champions of Russia and abroad, can cost up to 100,000.
