Conformation, Hunting, Tracking
An English scenthound bred to hunt otter on land and water, the Otterhound is distinguished by his shaggy, rough coat and webbed feet. His large, robust body and deep, powerful voice make him an excellent watchdog. Lively and good-natured, this dog is a devoted family companion. The Otterhound requires frequent weekly grooming to prevent matting in his coarse, dense coat.
