The Otterhound is part of the hound group, initially bred for hunting otters. What’s unique about this pooch is that they have webbed feet, which help them swim and chase after otters. In addition, they’re large dogs, with females being slightly smaller than males. For instance, they can grow 24 to 27 inches tall and weigh 80 to 115 pounds. In addition, they have an average lifespan of 10 to 13 years. To learn more about this purebred, take a look at the Otterhound photos shown below.

There’s a lot to love about this doggo, but they’ll do better in a household with adults. For instance, they’re affectionate with their family members, but they might be wary of young children. Also, they may not get along well with other dogs or strangers. This pooch is easy to train, though. So, you can socialize them early and get them used to meet new people and animals. Just remember, they were bred to hunt otters, so they have a strong prey drive. Having smaller animals in the house, such as hamsters or even cats, might not be a good idea.

In addition, Otterhounds have a medium double coat that’s a rough texture and waterproof, protecting them while swimming. They don’t shed too much, and grooming them is easy, but brushing them once per week and bringing them to a professional grooming salon once in a while will help keep them clean and healthy.
