Bloodhounds are intelligent, calm, and usually friendly. These traits in addition to their keen sense of smell make them good at tracking or finding people, so they are now used both in law enforcement and search and rescue. Although Bloodhounds tend to be less energetic than other breeds, their high level of stamina helps them compete in tracking, trailing, and obedience as sport. These dog sports as well as indoor tracking by finding small treats hidden throughout the house can provide physical and mental stimulation while helping Bloodhounds bond with their families. Treats should be broken into small pieces to avoid weight gain.
