I have had many people tell me that a hound can not be kept in the house because of its odor. I have smelled our beagle all over and can't detect any bad smells on her, and we really don't bathe her that often. Some of the hound mixes at the shelter seem to have an odor, but I'm not sure how much of that is just shelter living. Those of you who have hounds, do they have an odor? Why would a clean hound smell any worse then any other dog?
