Hi everyone,
Well.. its finally here. Jeremiah comes home Monday at 8 weeks old. I've been reading up on bassetts. I'm a first time owner. He gets micro chipped and 1st set of shots on monday. Just any good positive honest feedback on how to get through the first week with a basset puppy for 1st time basset owners.

no different than any other breed of dog the most important things to be working on in decending order

1. Bite Inhibition a dog with no bite inhibition is not long for this world when living peacfully with humans is called for

2. socialization/habituation lacking in this are is the number one cause of behavioral issues in dogs, Behavioral issues is the leading cause of owner relinquishment to animal shelters

3. house training

4. basic obedience the number one being a strong and reliable recall.
