English Foxhounds are active, friendly, strong and lively. They require more training for obedience, as they are difficult to train. The English Foxhound has great endurance, and needs adequate exercise to keep in shape. They are good with children and other dogs, but are prone to chase and hunt animals the size of foxes. They readily recognize their masters as "leader of the pack". They are eager for the hunt, gentle, and enjoy being with their pack leader.
English Foxhounds need minimal coat care. Occasional rub down the coat with a rough cloth is sufficient.
No serious genetic faults. The English Foxhound is a rather healthy breed
Exercise of English Foxhounds should be frequent and hard, as they should not be allowed to get fat. English Foxhounds are bred to have great endurance, so long exercise is a must.
Firm, no nonsense leadership is required. Obedience training should begin early. The "come" command is the hardest to teach because of scent distraction. English Foxhounds are more difficult to train than other breeds.
