These dogs are friendly and even-tempered, and the Otterhound is devoted to the family. They might still not be the best choice for families with children because of the size; their hunting instinct is extremely strong, and they're stubborn when it comes to following an interesting smell. They need more supervision outdoors than most breeds, and a child might not be a good choice for dog walker.
There are around 1000 Otterhounds in the world and only around 350 in North America.
