American Foxhound

General Description

American Foxhounds are easygoing and amiable. They also can be stubborn and independent, however, which can make training an exercise in patience. Obedience classes are recommended, and as scenthounds, it may never be safe to have them off-leash because their noses can lead them into trouble.

Character and Temperament

Sweet tempered, kind, independent, intelligent, loyal and loving


Foxhounds are extremely active and need one to two hours a day of exercise. Take them on long, meandering walks with lots of sniffing time or take them on a run with you. Foxhounds aren't suited to living in cramped quarters; they need a large yard or, better yet, an acre or two.
