Bascottie Breed Maintenance
The double coat on a Bascottie means the longer hair does not shed as often. Regular brushing will keep this hybrid looking and feeling well, and a variety of brushes should be used weekly. Stiff brushes, hound gloves, and wide-toothed combs are ideal grooming accessories you can use to keep the coat looking healthy. The Bascottie, though parented by the heavy drooling Basset Hound, is not known to drool and his clean coat keeps him from developing any hound smells. Basset Hounds have large ears, but the Bascottie's ears are significantly smaller. Despite their smaller size it is always a best practice to clean your Bascottie's ears with a veterinarian approved solution once a week to remove dirt, wax, and debris.
