Hello, I’m new here and new to owning a basset hound! I have had him a little over a year and got him when he was just a puppy . His name is Bandit but I call him Benny if you have any advice I would love to hear it. He is very codependent and I’m trying to work on his anxiety.

If by being 'codependent' you mean he hates being on his own, that's Basset. This is a pack breed and quite honestly, does better with a canine, or even feline, companion if not you. I'm reluctant to suggest this because if you are not there a lot of the time, you could end up with 2 with separation anxiety not just one, but now might be a good time to buy another Basset - we did with our first two! But then we didn't have a Basset until we could afford for me to stop working full time. Which I did, for the first 6 months after which I went back part time. ..... 3 hours a day. He went back to not being clean around the house! As soon as I could stop working at all, I did and we bought a second hound too. And the rest is, as they say, history.
