The English Foxhound is very similar to the American Foxhound except it is more stout and slower. They are very good with children and their overall temperament is mild. If raised as family pets they should do well in a family environment. If bred to hunt, much more patience and training is required, especially if they will be around other non-canine pets. May be hard to housebreak. Foxhounds need a great deal of exercise and are not recommended for apartment life. Their short and smooth coat grooms easily.

They are not easily trainable, however, and should begin at an early age. They are very enthusiastic about hunting, and will not be called off if they follow a “hot” scent.

They have a solid voice and good attention span. English Foxhounds are lively, strong and noisy. Their pack skills allow them to adapt easily to following a “pack leader”, or owner. They enjoy the company of humans, and with training and exercise, can become an excellent family pet.

English Foxhound Character:
The English Foxhound is lively, active, and courageous. This breed is an outstanding, hard-working hunter. While initial training of these dogs requires a great deal of patience, they are eventually quite receptive and obedient of their master. This breed prefers to be in the company of other dogs, but they are very social and friendly with people as well. They get along well with other animals and children. Because the English Foxhound uses up a great deal of its energy at an early age, they are usually ready to retire from their work by the age of 7 or 8.

If given sufficient exercise, the English Foxhound makes a good companion.
