how to take care of an italian greyhound

Italian Greyhounds have their roots as hunting dogs, so although they look fragile, they require a moderate amount of exercise.

Daily walks and regular dog runs and playtime are also preferable.

Since it is a small dog breed, it is necessary to be careful not to jump from a high place or exercise for a long time.

Italian Greyhounds are friendly and social, and are loyal and affectionate to their owners.

Depending on the individual, some children have a shy personality, and some children are especially wary and fearful at first, especially in new environments and strangers.

In order to reduce stress, it is important to start training from an early age so that children can gradually get used to places and people they do not know.

Of course, the amount of exercise and personality differ depending on the personality.

Let's try to keep in mind the proper care and relationship that suits the child.

History and Origin of the Italian Greyhound

The origin of the Italian Greyhound dates back to ancient Egypt.

This breed is known as a royal dog owned by noble people, and its beautiful appearance makes it appear in many works of art and literature.

The small Italian greyhound is descended from the small greyhounds that already existed in the Pharaoh's court in ancient Egypt. Numerous vase and vessel drawings show that the breed arrived in Italy in the early 5th century BC via Laconia (Greece).
