Dog Breeds

Otter Hound

Size
Appearance
Their rough, shaggy coat and large size make them the most distinctive of the hounds. The Otter Hound comes in colours: Wheat, Black/Tan, Liver/Tan and Tri-colour. Their name comes from hunting otters. Otters once in abundance, were predators that decimated the fish in English rivers.
Characteristics
The Otter Hound has an exquisite scenting ability like that of the Bloodhound, and can easily pick up and follow a drag ten to twelve hours old. They can swim as long as five hours, an activity requiring the ultimate in both nose and endurance. Their oily, thick undercoat and webbed feet make them a strong swimmer.
Temperament
These dogs have the independence of hounds yet possess great devotion to their masters. They are affectionate and boisterous, much like the children they enjoy playing with. Self-willed nature, combined with substantial size, need the skills of a knowledgeable trainer
