Basset Hound Fun!

A Friendly Place to
Learn About and Share the Breed

I like to say that my family is... Owned by a Basset Hound!!!

We got our first Basset in 2002 and named him Hunter - for fun we called him Hunter Bunter. He was a great addition to our family. He was friendly, adorable, and gentle. He was also quite stubborn at times but, we loved him to death. Hunter was with us for 14 years. We are now owned by a second Basset Hound. Her name is Coffee Bean!

Many years ago I decided to create this website. I had learned a lot about the breed through my initial research. Better yet, I enjoyed hanging out with a goofy dog named Hunter so much that I decided...  Why not share all of our fun and silly experiences? Believe it or not, through all of the years that I was owned by Hunter Bunter, he was always teaching me something new and useful to share with others.

I hope you enjoy your visit here. Read on for more about what this site has to offer...

Thinking about adding a Basset Hound to your family?

If so, then this website is perfect for you! You may have questions like:

  •  Is this breed right for me and my family?
  • What’s the best way to find one?
  • And once I have one, how do I train and care for him?

I had these same questions before we got Hunter. I created this website as a valuable, free resource to answer questions like these and more.
