Nervous Temperaments

Some bloodhounds have a nervous temperament, this makes managing them difficult, you will have to live with this temperament for the rest of that hounds life, hounds with nervous or bad temperaments should not be bred from. 

Temperament is one of the issues that the Kennel Club has highlighted on Breedwatch for the Bloodhound. Breeders should be working towards breeding better temperaments.

Bloodhounds are sensitive and do need socialising well as puppies, this must be continued as an adult to prevent them from being silly. Hounds can be outgoing and accepting of different situations but firstly they need to be bred with better temperaments and secondly they need socialising properly
