YES, YES, YES! Contrary to the Hollywood movies & TV stereotype this is not a lethargic porch dog. Remember that bloodhounds were originally developed for stamina in hunting centuries ago, and are commonly used for search and rescue or law enforcement. Bloodhounds are happiest when working, or using up their energy . This can be done daily with walks, jogging (adult hounds only), swimming, playing fetch, trying AKC tracking, obedience, rally, agility, or ABC mantrailing, hiking on leash, or a variety of other physical pursuits. A bored bloodhound equals trouble! A pooped Bloodhound is a happy hound and therefore a happy owner.
