Hey there!  I adopted a Basset from a rescue about a year ago. Bassets are so vocal-it seems like mine has a different noise for everything.  She tries “talking” to people and howls when she is excited about going somewhere.  And yes…she whines too.  It has gotten better over time, but when we got her, she had severe separation anxiety and she would whine all the time.  It is just something they do though (in fact she’s doing it now for no reason!).  

As for the howling, when we first got her, she would howl the entire time we’d be out of the apartment.  We started crate training her, and that really worked for us.  After about a month of that-the neighbors started telling us they didn’t hear her anymore!  Bassets don’t have the best manners, so they need training, but they are so stubborn too.  They respond well to food based training.  I woudn’t be too worried about scolding her.  If she has separation anxiety, I would try to get control of that so it doesn’t get worse.  I would try talking to your vet or any basset hound rescues near you.  I hoped this helps.  Goodluck!
