Afghan Hound Temperament: What's Good About 'Em, What's Bad About 'Em

If you want a dog who...

  •     Has a tall, slender, elegant build
  •     Is extremely athletic and graceful – can run swiftly and jump great heights
  •     Has a long, flowing coat that comes in many colors
  •     Can be both a dignified aristocrat and a silly clown
  •     Is gentle with people and other dogs

An Afghan Hound may be right for you.

If you don't want to deal with...

  •     Providing a safe enclosed area where he can gallop
  •     Shyness or suspiciousness when not socialized enough
  •     Emotional sensitivity to stress and abrupt changes in schedule
  •     Strong instincts to chase other living creatures that run
  •     Slowness to learn and an independent "what's in it for me?" attitude toward training – can appear very stubborn
  •     Lots of brushing and combing (or shearing the coat short so it becomes easy-care)

An Afghan Hound may not be right for you.
