Country of origin Bloodhound is Belgium, this breed (St Hubert’s Hound) is one of the oldest hound breeds in the world, its line is one of the cleanest in a huge line of hounds. In the eighth century in Belgium, this breed was bred as a hunting breed. In France, this breed was perfected as a hunting dog of the royal court. In 1066 the breed was used by the English king William. Later, after several centuries of careful selection, we got the Bloodhound in its current form. His ability as a bloodhound is simply amazing – he is able to find a trail by smell even after 14 days. Tracking for 220 km of track is record-breaking. The objects found by him are used in court as evidence.
The temperament of this breed is gentle, indiscriminate either with people or with other dogs. The nature of this dog is a little timid, equally sensitive to the kindness and adjustments of the owner.
Bloodhound is one of the most gentle members of the family, but at the same time requires a lot of exercise during training and a well-defined daily routine, the timely addition of calcium to food. Finding footprints should be his favorite game – this serves to cultivate his main purpose.
