English Foxhound - Care and Grooming

Lively, friendly, and energetic, the English Foxhound is a breed that has a friendly nature and is eager and sociable. These Dogs are agile and lively, and make for good companion pets, although they can take time to mature, which means that they may retain the stamina, playfulness, and energy of a puppy for longer periods than many other breeds. The English Foxhound can be a very independent and headstrong creature, and is therefore best suited to those with some experience of dog ownership. Training may not be an easy task, and patience combined with confidence and assertiveness will be required.

The English Foxhound loves other Dogs and will get along well with them; however, the high prey drive of this breed means that you will need to be careful around smaller animals, as he may give chase - ensure that he is socialized early with other pets in the household. These Dogs also get along well with children, although some may be a little too large and energetic for very young children. The English Foxhound may be friendly or reserved around strangers. These Dogs will bark to indicate danger, and this can make them effective watchdogs. You need to ensure that your English Foxhound is not neglected, as boredom and lack of exercise can result in destructive behavior and chewing.

English Foxhound Appearance

The English Foxhound is a large, sturdy, and athletic dog, with a wise expression. His coat is short and hard, and the coloring of the coat can vary, with the most popular being tri-colored with black, tan, and white. Other colors include tan and white, lemon and white, and red and white. The ears of the English Foxhound fold to the side of the head. These Dogs weigh in at 60-95 pounds for females, and 75-95 pounds for males. The height of the English Foxhound is around 24-26 inches.

English Foxhound Grooming

The English Foxhound is generally a low shedder when properly groomed, which means that he could prove ideal for those that suffer from allergies. Grooming requirements are not high for this breed, and an occasional brushing coupled with a wipe down with a damp cloth will keep his coat clean and glossy. You should also ensure that the ear canals are kept dry and clean for hygiene reasons and to reduce the chances of infection.

English Foxhound Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The English Foxhound is generally a hardy and healthy breed, with a life expectancy of around 10-12 years. There are a few health problems linked to the breed, and this includes pancreas problems, renal disease, and HD.
