Overview

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.

Character

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.

Temperament

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.

Care

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.

Coat

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

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.

Activity

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.

Ownership

Help reduce the number of dogs 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.
