A Basset Hound mixed with a Bulldog- what could be cuter? In addition to being very good looking pups, this big hybrid of dog is social, loyal and also very affectionate. They love to meet new people and make friends with fellow pups. In addition to all of these traits, Bully Bassets are a pretty active hybrid. While they love to walk and run, they are more likely to have short bursts of energy and then be ready for a nap. These activities are all perfect for a Bully Basset's demeanor so give them a try with your pup!
Basset Hounds were originally bred as tracking dogs and were trained to follow scent trails in order to find their prize. Bully Bassets are still very likely to want to use this incredible skill and follow their nose when searching for something. Setting up games that revolve around your Bully Basset's desires to track scents is a great idea! There are games you can play indoors and outdoors, activities that are more challenging and some that are easy for when you and your pup are just starting to test their tracking skills. So grab your pup's favorite treats and get started!

Of course, if you are lucky enough to have easy access to a body of water, that’s even better! Before jumping in, make sure your Bully Basset truly does like the water by slowly getting them accustomed to it.
