Thanks Mikey! I'll read up on that article. Guess the phrase 'I am owned by a Basset' is official for me now!

Not even close to an "expert" However, I find mine have been mostly motivated by food and praise (praise to the point its a party and you look like a raving lunatic if anyone is watching).

Personally, I don't like choke collars or the sort. "Harshest" I get is a Gentle Lead with Jake (the kind that flips over his snout) just because he can pull so hard and drag me behind him (Admittedly, I didn't do a good job training in the beginning. He was my first basset and I was spoiled by a really smart shepherd).

My later bassets (all girls) have done much better. I don't know if it is the genders, my learning curve or a mix.
