Susan Souris, PE 1/10/2010 11:56:06 AM Boydd is my first Basset Hound. I have never experienced a drooling dog before and like to keep a clean house. HOWEVER I would not give this dog up to get back to a clean house. He is the most affectionate and personable animal I have ever had in my home. He is a great deal of care and it takes work to keep things clean around him but the trade off is worth it.....I was just wondering if there is a way to train him not to shake his head.
