Baskimo Activity Requirements
The Baskimo is a friendly and intelligent hybrid who is eager to please, thanks to the American Eskimo parent. Any stubbornness you find in your Baskimo is sure to come from the Basset Hound parent, but the Baskimo is considered an outgoing, loving, and easy to train hybrid. When it comes to children, the Baskimo is a remarkable patient and loving companion. The sturdy nature of the hybrid allows it to stand up to everyday child interactions but teaching your kids to respect and take care of their dog is equally important.
The Baskimo gets along very well with other dogs, especially given the pack-minded traits of the Basset Hound. The American Eskimo softens this hybrid for non-canine companionship, such as with cats. The Baskimo may be slightly leery of strangers, but early socialization will help develop their friendliness towards unknown, non-threaten people. Energy levels in the Baskimo tend to follow that of the Basset Hound parent and will be lower with less intensity. However, these easy to train, eager to please hybrids still need their daily exercise to keep their minds sharp and bodies healthy.
