Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen...


The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is a high-spirited, lively, sociable, loving and sensitive dog, clever, and with a bit of a mind of its own, but is quite straight forward. This is a keen scenthound with a very inquisitive nature. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen has bags of energy and needs a fair amount of exercise. He is also a dog that enjoys the affections and companionship of his owners, and is not well suited to those unable to commit time to their pets. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is an entertaining and cheerful soul but his stubborn streak and bossy nature means that he is better suited to those with some experience of dog ownership.

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen has a rough, wiry coat that looks unkempt in appearance, along with a short, thick undercoat. The coat requires regular grooming with brush and comb. Keep the ears, and especially the ear passages, clean. File claws that become too long and clip any hair that becomes too long between the pads of the feet to prevent tangles between the toes which could trap thorns or such like. About once a year pluck the loose and dead hair out by hand. If you wish to show the dog, the neck should be emphasized by removing more hair from this area. Baths should be given only when necessary.
