I wholehearted agree with Bassets3 about an obedience class. In addition to learning the basics, it's a great way to bond with your buppy. Finally, since you have homework each week (and hopefully conintue the lessons after the class is over) your buppy has something exciting to do with you every day. Bassets are incredibly social dogs and don't like to be left out of anything!

Make sure Ginger gets plenty of exercise every day. A long walk before bedtime is great. The old saying that a tired basset is a good basset is true! They have a lot of energy and will either use it on productive things like walks or destructive things.

It does sound like you are making progress. But i know it can seem like forever! Hang in there - being owned by a basset is one of life's greatest pleasures.
