Rosco and Layla only smell after they are wet or messy. Layla sometimes smells a bit fishy when she needs her anal glands expressed. Yes they drool but it isn't too bad. The biggest two cleaning issues are after eating wet food (ears get in the bowl and need to be wiped) and after Layla drinks (she dunks her head into the bowl up to her eyes and usually a mop is required).

We let our hounds lay in the bed with us on sleep-in mornings and a little bit before we go to bed. They are really good sleeping buddies, and if you want a dog I haven't met a bad one yet.

I'm sure it's a unique thing with each dog but I have not met a basset owner who regrets getting theirs.
