Black Forest Hounds may be small but they are strong and also protective of their owners. As a loyal companion dog, they grow close to their family and at the same time, a little wary of strangers. While you can train your Black Forest Hound to be accepting and friendly toward new people, you can also teach them to act as a watchdog and alert you when a new person encroaches on your territory. These smart and dependable pups will gladly act as your protector if you want them to so train them well and you will never feel unsafe again if your Black Forest Hound is around.
Ask a friend with a pet to rub a towel on their pet and then hide the towel in your house. See how long it takes for your Black Forest Hound to find the “new pet”.
