Guidelines for measuring basset ears……

June 28th, 2009 - 8:08 pm KY Time

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and wanting to submit ear length lovers: I am working on putting the guidelines at the top of this sub blog category so everyone knows how to measure.

I will just blog about it again briefly. Please pull the slack out of the ear. Do not pull tight. (VERY IMPORTANT)!

It is really very simple!



Place the tape measure at the skull where the ear attaches. A cloth tape measure works great. This is not a contest but a historical record so we can keep track of our beloved hound ear measurements. Of course I will keep track of the longest ears. I just want everyone to measure the same way, which so far has worked great. I just wanted to reiterate this for anyone reading that has not heard the official guidelines of measurement. I will have my website guy post it at the top very soon.

More measuring later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma – KOTM
