The Pharaoh Hound is naturally intelligent, well behaved, and very pleasant. Blushing is an endearing quality of this breed. Blushing when excited will steal your heart. Not recommended for a home with non-canine pets as this breed likes to chase things and is a hunter.
Cheerful, quiet, and independent, this breed is wonderful with children making him a good household pet for any child to grow up with. Can be wary of strangers, but will warm up quickly. The Pharaoh Hound is prone to timidity and should be well socialized as an early stage of life.
Doing well in running and obedience sports, the Pharaoh Hound should always be a companion animal. Not good for kennel life, this dog loves to be near his owner. This dog can be active yet calm and collected at times making this dog perfect for a household with children, although they should be properly trained with this breed.
Rubber brushing for the Pharaoh Hound is fine for removing loose and dead hair. An average shedding breed, this dog does not need regular bathing, only when necessary. A very clean and well kempt dog, grooming is not a big concern.
This beautiful and athletic breed has a short coat that doesn't need much grooming. The coat is short and glossy lying close to the body of the dog. The Pharaoh Hound is weather resistant to a degree.
Training should always be consistent and gentle as this breed can be very sensitive to a harsh voice. Prone to timidity, the trainer must be well experienced with this breed so they're not to frighten him. The Pharaoh Hound is rather intelligent and can do well in obedience.
The Pharaoh Hound if left outdoors for a long period should be protected from the cold. Does best in warmer climates, but if protected will also do well in cooler weather. A strong instinct to hunt, this breed must have a tall fence as they can easily climb or jump to find wild game.

Do Pharaoh Hounds ever turn out black in color?

No, a Pharaoh Hound will never be black in color. No purebred Pharaoh Hound will be black.

Anonymous asked:
Is it incredibly hard to find a Pharaoh Hound puppy, and how costly would it be to get one?

1 Comment


The Pharaoh Hound is considered a more rare breed of dog, and so with that there are not very many breeders in North America. The best way to find a breeder is to go on the AKC and CKC website and look for Pharaoh Hound breeders that are registered with either kennel club. The average price of a Pharaoh Hound puppy is between $1500.00 - $2500.00 depending on the breeder.

Anonymous asked:
I know this dog has a high prey drive. Where I live, we don't have big backyards, so I would have to walk the Pharaoh in a large field that's fenced in. Other people walk their dogs and there are sheep and swans. I have to let the Pharaoh run at least a bit, so unleashing would be ideal. Would I have to worry about the Pharaoh bothering the sheep (harming?) or other dogs?

1 Comment


The Pharaoh Hound has a high prey drive and needs to be controlled accordingly. With consistant, positive reinforcement training you can work with your dog to have a solid recall and a leave it command. With those two, it is possible you could let your dog off leash and he/she will not harm or bother the sheep and/or other dogs. Lots of socialization with the sheep and other dogs is key as well. This breed does need to run, so taking up jogging or biking with your dog is also an idea that you could do to satisfy the dogs exercise needs.

Anonymous asked:
How come I see Pharaoh puppies with ears up and others flopped down? Also, I see the distance of the ears farther apart for flip down ears, yet all is registered?

1 Comment


Just like all humans, every child (puppy) develops at their own pace. Some puppy's ears perk up quickly, while others take their time to perk. If they are all register-able, they can be registered ears up or down. But to be shown, the ears must be up.

Anonymous asked:
Do Pharaoh Hounds make good doggie playmates with Boxers?

1 Comment


Every dog is different and some dogs like to play with certain other dogs. The Boxer is an energetic, full-hearted dog that loves to be physical. While the Pharoah Hound is much more refined and likes to chase and be chased, they are not really wrestling dogs. I would suggest another Boxer as a playmate or a Bull Terrier, American Bull Dog, Boston Terrier, or Bull Mastiff. One thing you could do is take your dog down to the shelter and see if he/she is interested in another dog. The main thing you want is another dog that has the same energy level and playfulness as your Boxer. Some funny friends have developed because of shelter dogs looking for a new home that just bond instantly with their new canine brother/sister.
