The Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is a purebred dog breed part of the hound group. Also known as the Little Griffon Vendeen Basset, this doggo comes from France, dating back to the 1700s. Initially bred as a hunting dog, this purebred is a great family companion dog today. For example, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is alert, happy, and vibrant.

In addition, the Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is loyal and affectionate with its family members. Also, they’re excellent around young children, other dogs, and meeting new people. However, even though they’re relatively friendly to everything, they still need early socialization and training. This dog breed can be independent and have a stubborn side, so that training could be tricky. You can hire a professional dog trainer to help you out if needed. In addition, this doggo is a great watchdog. They’ll bark to alert you of something but then greet the unknown guest. Also, they love to bark regardless, whether they’re excited, bored, or want your attention.

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen – A Friendly Dog

Petit Basset Griffon Vendeens are medium-sized dogs. For example, they can grow about 13 to 15 inches tall and weigh between 25 and 40 pounds. In addition, they have a long double coat that requires regular grooming. Also, they shed and drool a moderate amount. So, you’ll want to brush their coat at least once a week to keep it looking nice. Also, be sure to wash their face at least once a week to give it a good cleaning.

This doggo has moderate energy levels. So, you’ll only need to provide them with about 45 minutes of physical activity per day. They can live in an apartment but prefer having, and be more comfortable in, a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. With proper care, the breed has an average lifespan of about 14 to 16 years.
