About the Small Swiss Hound

Small Swiss Hounds are deft, untiring and agile dogs with a very fine sense of smell and a real passion for hunting. They pick and follow the trail with confidence, communicated with a deep, melodious voice.

They are naturally friendly, with a temperament that goes from calm to lively, without a sign of nerves.
