Hamiltons are not for everybody. They are typical of scent hounds and will follow their nose. They can be stubborn. Some people may call them loud, true Hamilton people call it singing. They can be very vocal at times but usually only when the situation warrants it.

Most Hamiltons are multi-purpose animals, in that they are pets, show dogs, and hunters. Going off leash in an open area is not advisable unless its an enclosed or fenced area. They do need free running, but in open areas this could mean that you would be waiting for thier return at an undertermined amount of time. If they find a scent or see something interesting they will not come when called. Some Hamiltons are very good on recall but give them a scent and their mind is overcomed with instinct.
