crate size. you want a crate for a full size basset 35" minimium than for the pup use a divider that comes with many crates or fill the crate with boxes and such to make it smaller for a pup and you can expand it as the dog grows'


basset and cat especial starting with a puppy is all about the cat and its willingness to set boundries and not be chased

People do say that a dog and a bitch will get on better than 2 of the same sex - although I have 2 boys and they get on great so it really depends on the individuals. I have though, also got friends who have had 2 bitches who have really clashed (when 2 girls fight, they REALLY fight). I'd say go for a boy but then again I'm slightly biased towards those little fellas

Most male on male aggression is sex hormone related if on or both males are nuetered prior to a history of agression between the two agression is very rare. Bitch bitch agression in spayed/neutered dogs is more common in my experience than dog vs dog but that it is still rare.

Olive had a 4 year old Golden as a big sister and role model for the first 7 months of her life and it was wonderful. The Golden, Sookie, was very patient and nurturing with Olive. She taught her how to go to the door for bathroom breaks, how to play gently, and how to refrain from chasing the cats. Of course there were many more benefits, but how could you expect any less from a Golden, right?

I have three girls and the only ding dongs they have had - 3 in 7 years - is over spots close to us - that's Iz and Lula (they are spayed). They chew bones together side by side, eat together in the same room, play with toys (although possession is 99 percent of the law) and never remotely a problem. I think girls together have a real understanding. I have had a lot of male dogs before but different breeds and personally I really like the girls...
Not saying i won't have a boy....They are all lovely and that's one of the many great things about Bassets - they have a lovely predisposition to get along.
