Living Area
This breed of Petit Basset Griffon Vendeen is a very active indoors or outdoors dog, and can live in most any time of climates, but due to their scruffy double-coated fur, they actually prefer cooler weather. Living in small apartments or small homes is acceptable as long as adequate exercise is done on a regular basis, and the neighbors do not mind a hound's bark letting everyone know that company is there or they just found their favorite plaything. Going for walks is fun, but this dog is strong in the hunting instincts, so keeping it on the leash is mandatory. Also, they love to dig and plan on escapes in their spare time--little sneaky holes along the fence lines or in the fence corner are good signs to the owners that the big escape moment may soon be occurring.
