About Irish Wolfhound

Grooming

Grooming

Irish Wolfhounds have a hard and rough coat. The fur under their jaws and around the eyes is long and wiry.

Pet-quality Irish Wolfhounds have soft and long fur.

The wolfhounds are average shedders and they shed consistently all year. Brush the coat every week to maintain a healthy coat.

Origins

Their origin dates back to the year 391 AD. Back then, they were known as the Irish wolves or the war dogs. They are immensely favored, and in some places, they were the preserve of nobles. Back then, they were used to dislodge the enemy off a horse or chariot during battle.

They were also given off to noblemen as gifts in the olden times. By late 1800, efforts had been placed to protect this breed, and to date, they are among the most highly regarded dog breeds around the world.

Key Characteristics Of Irish Wolfhounds

Are Irish Wolfhounds Family-Friendly?

Irish Wolfhounds are gentle, calm, dignified and very responsive to family. They get along just fine with everyone.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Irish Wolfhounds may suffer from:

Anesthesia Sensitivity

Hip Dysplasia

Osteochondrosis Dissecans

A condition where abnormal cartilage growth results in the detachment of a cartilage flap within a joint, causing pain and impaired movement.

Nature / Temperament

Dignified, Sweet, Loyal, Tempered, Intelligent

Suitable Environment

The Irish Wolfhound is the tallest dog breed in the world, and they need enough space to run. They do not like extreme heat, but they do well in most climates. They aren’t suited for smaller homes and apartments.

Active dog owners who enjoy going on long walks will find an ideal walking companion in the Irish Wolfhound.

Other Considerations

● The Irish Wolfhound’s large size predisposes them to many health issues, so they don’t live that long.

● Irish Wolfhounds don’t do very well in apartments. While they have low activity levels, they still need enough room to stretch and are not built to negotiate stairs.

● Irish Wolfhounds need to be kept in a fenced yard to prevent them from pursuing other animals outside.

How can I take good care of my Irish Wolfhound?

Nutrition

Irish Wolfhound puppies should get high-quality dog food. Giant breed-specific dog food is advisable, as the Irish Wolfhound needs enough protein and calcium to grow.

A 5-month-old Irish Wolfhound is as big as most adult large breed dogs.

Clean water should be made available at all times.

Most Newfoundlands will reach physical maturity at around 12 months old, but may retain a puppy-like personality for much longer than that.

If you feel your Newfoundland is underweight or overweight when they reach adult age, consult with your vet about your dog’s diet and nutrition.

Grooming

Irish Wolfhounds shed only moderately. They will need weekly brushing and their coats may need to be stripped to keep the coat tidy and healthy.

Exercise

Being hunting dogs to the core, Irish Wolfhounds need at least 40 minutes of exercise each day. However, since they are prone to bloat, exercise should not come immediately after a meal.

You can have your Irish Wolfhound come along as you go out for a walk or to meet friends. This has been found to cause a positive influence on their behaviour.

As they age, their exercise needs continue to reduce. Walks or puzzles can substitute sprinting or chasing activity.

Training

Irish Wolfhounds are smart, good natured, tolerant and they quick learners. However, they tend to mature slowly, which often leads to a long and sometimes frustrating adolescence full of messes.

They learn better with patient and reward-oriented training. Irish Wolfhounds do very well in therapy work because they are calm and enjoy the company of people.

Since they are very in-tune with their environment, it is a good idea to introduce them to training at a young age.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Irish Wolfhound Questions

Irish Wolfhounds are average when it comes to emotional sensitivity. They are not affected emotionally by inconsistencies in their routine or household rules. They love it when you change routine.

At times, it will not hurt to have people over or change up their training routine.

Their barking frequency is low to moderate. They make great pets for people who love peace and quiet.

If you are looking for an Irish Wolfhound for sale, it’s best if you adopt from ethical, responsible breeders. This helps ensure that you get Irish Wolfhound puppies that have fewer health issues and genetic problems, and helps preserve the well-being of the breed in the future.
