Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen | Dog Gates Small or big dog houses are perfect for this little pet.

The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen (right, Ch Jamars Saffi of Monkhams) is generally abbreviated to PBGV and in the short time he has been in the UK - only since 1969 - he has made a lot of friends. One of the short-legged Basset breeds, bas being French for low, he is a busy little dog with his nose firmly fixed to the ground in search of a scent. Created in the Vendee region of Western France he is notably smaller than his cousin the Grand Basset Griffon Vendeen.

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen | Dog HousesIn height he ranges from 33 - 38cm and weighs between 31 - 40lbs. He is a solid little dog, but very well-balanced and sound and can keep going for as long as is required. The coat is rough and harsh to the touch with a thick undercoat; the show Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen should never be trimmed. The coat needs a weekly brush through with a slicker brush and a comb around the beard to remove accumulated debris. The base colour of the coat is white with any combination of lemon, orange, tricolour or grizzle markings. His long eyebrows give him a comical expression and this is certainly part of his character; the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is a happy, extrovert hound who fits in extremely well with a busy young family.

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen | Dog Training AidsIn the nicest possible sense he conveys the impression of being a bit of a scruff; quite lacking in vanity he has no problem scuffling through the autumn leaves and bringing a selection back into the house. The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen has something of a tendency to be vocal, but as long as that is discouraged there is little to find fault with in this happy little dog.

English Cocker Spaniel

English Cocker Spaniel |Dog Bark Collars This family dog will surely love to play over a dog furniture.

The English Cocker Spaniel is an eager, playful, and cheerful dog with plenty of affection to give and a responsive and gentle nature. This is a sociable breed, and loves to be around his loved ones. Sweet and enthusiastic, the English Cocker Spaniel makes for a great family pet, but it is worth noting that some can be overly dependant on their owners to the point where they become clingy, so it is important to teach your English Cocker Spaniel to be independent. These sensitive dogs can sometimes be overly timid and submissive, so early socialization and training is important.

However, housebreaking can sometime be a problem and some English Cocker Spaniels can be chronic barkers. When it comes to children these dogs are generally very good, and they are also very friendly with strangers in most instances.
