Walker Hounds are usually great with the family and get along well with other dogs. Like most hounds, they are even-tempered. They are energetic and have a tendency to stand up on their hind legs to pursue their curiosity. They can be highly focused and attracted to certain toys, locations, people, sounds, or objects. They love to nest and cuddle. Getting them out of a bed, off a couch or away from a fireplace will be a feat in itself. They love to sleep after a long day and are the perfect companion dogs for watching television. Generally easy to train with little trouble, they make excellent pets if well exercised. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
