When one hears the term “full-blooded” it is commonly referred to someone who is speaking about a pure-line of dog. The term actually started with the “Blood,” in the name “bloodhound,” coming from “blooded” – meaning a hound of pure breeding. So the idea of the breed trailing blood of humans as to where they got their name is false.
.
.

Bloodhound’s have a loose coat that is thin to the touch, especially around the neck and head. The flap of skin beneath their throat is known as a dewlap and is a key characteristic of the breed. Besides giving them their distinctive sad-puppy-dog appearance, these ridges, folds and wrinkles actually aid the Bloodhound in their trailing endeavors. Along with their long, floppy ears, these features help the Bloodhound waft scents from the ground up to their sensitive noses and trap them there.
.
.

The Bloodhound is often referred to as “a nose with a dog attached.” It is estimated that they have approximately 250 – 300 million scent receptors — the most of any breed. Once they have identified a scent, they can follow that specific smell, despite all the other odors they encounter, for more than 130 miles and can pick up and follow a scent trail up to 300 hours after the source has left the area – that’s the equivalent a 12 day-old smell.

Almost anyone can identify a Bloodhound when they see one in television and movies. They appear somewhat clumsy and big but when in front of one, it is when you’ll truly appreciate the breed, its size and presence.
.
.

There are scent hounds and there are sight hounds, dogs that hunt by scent and those that hunt by sight, respectively. The Bloodhound is one of the oldest breeds that hunt by scent, with a nose unlike any other breed in the Dog Kingdom. The breed traces its history back to the St. Hubert hounds, an ancestors of today’s bloodhounds.
.
.

Mr. Hubert’s was a 7th-century French monk who bred hound dogs for hunting large game. Around the same time in other parts of Europe, other large game hunting breeders had their idea of a Hound dog as well. History has it that the St Hubert dogs and the other dogs blended together to eventually produce today’s dogs. Today in many French-speaking parts of Europe, Bloodhounds are still known as St. Hubert hounds.
.
.

The first time the bloodhound began man-trailing was in the 16th century and since then has been the premier human trailer instead of the large game dog it was once used for.
Man-trailing has enjoyed a steady increase in modern day law enforcement and search and rescue. Scent trails performed by proven trailing Bloodhounds are permissible in court and has been used many cases.
.
.

Bloodhounds are shy by nature but known to be affectionate and well-mannered especially to children. The brawny hunting dog of yesteryears is now a big sensitive lap dog that takes well to kindness and correction by their master. On a personal note, I’ve found them to be a patient breed but stubbornly “Stubborn” and its important to note, “Patience” doesn’t equate to easily trainable. Due of their restless nature to trail scent, they are easily distracted.
.
.

One of the larger breeds in the Hound group, at well over a 100lbs and almost 30in tall at the shoulders, it’s a big Hound dog so early and firm training is recommended as well socialization to help build confidence and avoid future shyness.

One of my favorite group of dogs are Hounds. I’m feeling like writing up on a few that I’d like to personally own in the future, so I’ll be sporadically writing about them in the coming post.

Can anyone name this breed?

Socialization is an everyday thing with dogs but the most important time to begin imprinting your puppy for YOUR life is the minute you bring them home. It’s widely accepted that between 4 to 12 weeks of age, puppies absorb their environment immensely. It’s crucial to carefully introduce different types of stimuli every day to your puppy and always making sure that it’s a positive experience.
.
.

These isolated socialization efforts can and will make a difference in your dog’s future outlook of life. In time with different experiences and as the puppy begins to become comfortable familiarizing with new things, they’ll begin to take on new encounters like different places, loud noises, objects, new people, shopping carts, smells and other animals with stride.
.
.

The key to socialization is to get to it while the puppy is young. Many pups can become socially handicapped if socializing begins after a certain time, usually 14 weeks of age but it depends on the dog, breed and how you approach the job at that time. It’s not to say that a pup can’t still be socialized but in many respects, the job is harder. At this stage a pup not only is learning basic of commands but has already established other inappropriate behaviors that need to be undone firstly before moving forward in positive socializing. In any case, the best thing to do with your puppy is to approach it in a preventative manner.
