Bloodhound puppies should never be allowed to overeat. The reason is quite interesting, in a way, and in another way it’s a little scary to think about, but the fact is that if overfed, a Bloodhound puppy will develop parts of his body faster than others, causing him to grow a little misshapen. And nobody wants that, not you, and certainly not the Bloodhound.
The best way to classify the Bloodhound’s natural temperament is mellow, and add a few hints of awkwardness as well just in case. Many Bloodhounds are all left feet, they just aren’t the athletic type. But, they are loyal and lovable dogs anyway.
Most of us can’t help but fall in love with his big floppy ears and sad puppy dog eyes. They are the type of puppy that you only want to take home because they look so helpless.

Check with your vet for more helpful advice, but as far as we’re concerned, it’s not a bad idea to quickly brush your Bloodhound puppy every day, it won’t take long, and it will keep him very healthy.
Interestingly, you should brush these dogs a lot, but bathing them often is not a good idea at all. It has to do with the oils in their coats.
They are not born with oily fur like other breeds (Border Collies would be a good example of dogs with oily fur), so washing them too much will leave their coats too dry. Think of human hair, we all have different levels of oil in our hair naturally, some people need to wash their hair every day and some people need to take a few days off or their hair will really dry out, it’s the same concept.
