Basset Hounds are low-maintenance dogs because they require very little grooming and just a short daily walk will satisfy their exercise needs.

Basset hounds are very cute and affectionate dogs that a lot of people are happy to have. All of us, dog owners, want to give our dogs the best possible life. Sadly, not all of us are able to do that due to finances or an active lifestyle.

The thing with Basset hounds is that they are not high maintenance in all possible ways. They are prone to a lot of medical conditions because of their body build. The older they get, they suffer from joint issues, back problems, diabetes, and other health conditions. On the other hand, they are considered low maintenance because a simple walk around the block is perfectly fine for them.

A Basset hound is a perfect dog for you if you have an active lifestyle and don’t have a lot of time to spend walking your dog. Also, if you want to have a peaceful household, then rest assured that a Basset hound won’t run around your house and make a lot of noise. They like to sit back and chill on the couch.
