A quick learning intelligent hunter. Loyal to owners, calm and well tempered. However as with any bloodhound they need an experienced trainer.

Plenty of exercise needed for these dogs, lots of lead walking and if possible a run off the lead would benefit. Be careful when off the lead they have the tendancy to follow scents to the exclusion of all else.
Recommended to brush and check ears, claws and teeth once a week.
