Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Grooming and Breed Care

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen Temperament

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is a courageous and independent dog, with plenty of character, spirit, and enthusiasm. This is a keen scenthound with a very inquisitive nature, and therefore should always have somewhere safe and secure to play and exercise when he is not on a leash. 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. Females tend to be the more dominant sex with this breed, and when it comes to training owners need to be positive yet assertive in order to achieve results.

 

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen can be very boisterous and mischievous, and this means that you may need to exercise caution around very small children who may inadvertently get knocked over or hurt. However, that said, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen does get along very well with children as well as with strangers. He should be fine around cats and Dogs, if a little bossy, but should not be trusted around smaller animals such as rabbits. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen loves to dig, which is something to bear in mind when he is left in his secure area, as it may not be as secure as you think! He also loves to bark, and this adds to his watchdog abilities but means that he is not best suited to those looking for a quiet pet.
