The Basset Artesien Normand of France is an affectionate, gentle pup that's great for hunting. Their easy-going and eager-to-please nature also makes them suitable for life with a family. This fur-baby tends to do well with children and other dogs. If you have cats or other smaller pets in the house, you'll want to socialize Fido with them right away.
Although these four-footed pals are energetic, they don't need lots of activity. Take your pooch for an extended walk or offer them about an hour of exercise each day to keep them fit and happy. You'll also need to provide them with some mental stimulation. Try some of the activities below to keep your Basset Artesien Normand content.
These pups need low-impact exercise. Due to their short legs and long back, it's not in their best interest to take them jogging. You can go for a stroll with them downtown instead. A change of venue will benefit you and your pooch. If you already live in the city, find a historic district or a part of town that's new to your furry friend. When you're coming from a rural setting, research your destination. Although you can do this activity in any weather, do your best to plan your special outing for a sunny day. No matter the weather, we're sure Fido will enjoy spending some time with their favorite human.
