Overview
The Irish Wolfhound is generally even tempered, patient, and intelligent. This breed is loyal and good with most people. Due to his size, this breed should not be left with infants unsupervised as he is so large, he could easily knock a child over.
Character
The Irish Wolfhound can be somewhat intimidating because of his size, but is very affectionate and gentle and usually greets everyone as a friend. This breed does not make a good guard or watchdog. The Irish Wolfhound has average intelligence, but is eager to learn and can prove easy to train.
Temperament
Affectionate, sweet natured, and well mannered, this breed makes a great companion. The Irish Wolfhound is very loyal and dignified. He quickly bonds with his family and does very well with other dogs and cats if he is properly socialized around them.
Care
Brushing and combing this dog regularly is a must. The Irish Wolfhound is an average shedder and the coat responds well to rubber brushing. Professional plucking of the coat may be necessary to remove dead hair. The beard of this breed must be cleaned regularly.
Coat
The Irish Wolfhound is a large breed with a medium length coat. The coat should always be rough and hard on the body, legs and top of the head. The hair around the eyes and muzzle should be wiry and slightly longer.
Training
The Irish Wolfhound proves to be a fast learner and will quickly grasp what you want him to do making him very obedient. This breed requires firm but gentle training. He should be taught as a puppy not to pull on the leash at this breed is very powerful and it can prove to be a problem in the future.
Activity
A large yard is best for this giant breed. This is a sighthound giving him the tendency to chase, so he should never be let off lead unless in a fenced in area. This dog enjoys long walks with his family and a nice chase.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Irish Wolfhound puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

How much does an Irish Wolfhound hound eat in a week?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Every dog is different and it all depends on what you feed your dog. The better quality food you feed your dog, the less he/she needs. For my Irish Wolfhounds, I feed a grain-free, high quality dog food and they eat an average of 4 cups of food a day (not included added wet food). If I were to buy some cheap dog food at the grocery store, they would be eating an average of 8 - 9 cups of food a day just to get the nutritional value that they need. So again, it all depends on the food you feed your dog. Irish Wolfhounds are very, very large dogs. Some people do not understand how large and so underestimate the amount of food they need. Please do your research and if you've never had an Irish Wolfhound before, contact a local, qualified and responsible breeder in your area. Spend some time with the breed before you decide on one. They are not for everyone.

How do Irish Wolfhound's get along with people? What is the nature of the Irish Wolfhound breed?

2 Comments

Irish Wolfhound's get along great with little kids and other pets. You just want to make sure that your children do not climb all over the dog because that not safe for any breed especially one as big at the Irish Wolf Hound. They are very loyal and kind and can build a lasting friendship. You just want to make sure you and your family realize that this breed has one of the shortest life expectancy from 6-8 years.

Cost How much do Irish Wolfhounds cost?

2 Comments

Roughly $1,200. Perhaps less for those of "pet quality" - this is a guess by the breeder that they may not be of the best "show quality" - this doesn't mean there is anything wrong with them - it's more of a rating system. "Pet quality" puppies should still have AKC registration papers for the litter (you have to finalize and pay for the registration of your puppy) and be purebred. Could cost a bit more depending on the breeding, if you are really into show dogs, etc.

Do Irish wolfhounds shed?

2 Comments

The Irish Wolfhound breed of dog only shed for 2 out of the 4 seasons, they are spring and fall. To minimize shedding, you will have to brush them 2-3 times a week during these 2 seasons. You will have clumps of hair everywhere, but it will be worth it for having a loving dog.

Are dark Irish wolf hounds pure breeds?

1 Comment

Yes. Purebred IWs can range from very light gray (almost white) through very dark gray, brindle (stripey), wheaten (beige-y color)and even black - though they tend to lighten up after puppyhood when they get their grown-up coat. Some breeders try hard to get black IWs. All are wonderful.

If it was recalled than I would not feed it to my dog. When you go to the first check up at the vets office, ask your vet which dog food supports the needs in keeping your dog healthy and giving it the nutrients it needs. I would choose a food with slim to none by products and made with wholesome foods
