I work with Basset Hound Rescue, so hopefully I can answer your questions.
1. Yes, Basset Hounds do smell. It is a hound odour and it is very common amoung the breed. They have an oily coat and this is what smells. I would not wash the dog twice a week, that is a lot and you may be drying out your dog. I would consider buying a scented powder or something else that is scented snd not harmful to dogs and using it.
2. Basset Hounds take longer than some other breeds to house train. If she is so young I would let her out more. If you think it is a problem you may want to get her checked by the vet to rule out any bladder infections, etc.
