An interesting documentary on the Italian bloodhound, very valid hunting dog. In the video you can discover all the characteristics of this dog. The origins of the Italian hound are very ancient and our hound must certainly be traced back to the primitive racing dogs of ancient Egypt then brought to the Mediterranean coasts by Phoenician traders. Thus these ancient racing dogs have also arrived in Italy.
Il Italian hound can be a hunter and only a hunter. Robust, passionate, tireless, he knows how to fight on any type of terrain: it is in fact used on the Po Valley, in the Alps, in the Apennines. Since it tends towards independence, it is necessary to impose hunting training on it from the first months of life. It expresses itself well both alone, in pairs, or in non-large wetsuits. Due to a centuries-old use in this type of hunting, the game on which the Italian hound expresses itself best is the hare, but it is able to hunt all types of furred game.
