Before taking on an Otterhound and bringing it into your family it’s important that you obtain as much information about the breed as possible. The Otterhound Club is the very best place to start and breeders and owners will give you advice on the breed and make sure you know and understand all there is to know that will help and guide you in your decision. It is very important for you to meet and spend some time with Otterhounds as they are a large boisterous hound and certainly not for the faint hearted!
Otterhounds are “scent hounds” and have been bred over hundreds of years for their ability to use their nose to track. Therefore when exercising – unless they have been impeccably trained to come back on recall it is often better that they’re kept on a flexi-lead unless you are in a securely fenced area.
