I would mention the leg break issue to anyone looking at getting an IG.\r\n\r\nI love them and have 2 of my own, but they are a special breed and not for everyone ... in my personal opinion at least ;)

Very like Whippets. Very loving dogs. Sight hounds do tend to please themselves more, because they are noticing everything, and have a \

Having had three IGs, I can tell you that they are never really house broken, only house bent. If it's too cold, they are happy to do you the favor of not having to take them outside. Not fans of rain either. First friend I had who had had IGs for a long time said she was going to tile her bedroom. I didn't get it. NOW I do.

Mine is perfectly trained, never had a single accident as I taught him how to knock at the door and ask to go pee out. IGs are amazing at dog training. Unlike Retrievers, they don't respond to dog treats, they respond to compliments and eye contact, they love our language, they love human interaction.\n\nI think this woman knows little about IGs.

mine was too. even when she had an accident, she would go to the spot where her original pee pad was located. \n

plantpot85, Hold a bladder for ten hours? I can't even hold my own bladder that long and these are toy breeds with small bladders. ;) Mine are all trained to a potty box when they can't go outside.

My Italian Greyhound is almost three and he still occasionally has accidents it is just something you have to deal with. Also training has been very hard with him but I love him he does mimic training he picks up tricks by watching my other two dogs tricks.

My IG is 11, still won't indicate potty time but can hold for hours. I take him out about every 4 hours and he's usually good through the night.

So I've had two Italian Greyhounds and neither of them have been independent, at all. My Italian Greyhounds listen very well. Most people have always told us that IGs can never be off of a leash because they won't listen but this has not been true in our case. With both of my IGs I could walk anywhere and they would stay right next to me even when squirrels or rabbits ran by. I do agree that they are difficult to house train and I highly recommend using a puppy pee pad in a kennel to begin training them and slowly moving that pee pad to a door and then eventually outside but it takes way more time to train them than other dogs. I have had several different breeds of dogs and this is by far my favorite. They are loyal, sweet, patient, and extremely endearing. My IGs were both funny and very loving and affectionate. They will happily cuddle on the couch or go out for an adventure in the woods with you. I may never own anything but an IG. :))

I live in a cold environment,but I really want an italian greyhound. I could litter train the dog. But what about exercise? Any tips to what I should do? Find a big house for him to play in or ?? In summer its fine because its warm. But in winter its so cold.

Hmmm! This was a lot longer before being edited. Yes, I hear her saying they're sight hounds (like before), but the part about them being difficult in situations around hospital equipment (going psycho as she called it) has conveniently been left out. Originally she spoke 2 minutes longer on this. I'm glad she \

My Italian greyhound is grey... and around his neck is white and also the tip of his tail... he's 10 months old and I had him since he was 2 months... when he was younger he could indicate places and did a good job on the potty stuff... but know he is peeing and pooping everywhere and PLEASE anyone give me advice to how to make him do his business on the pad...
bicosplay

carolineleiden
There ARE no cons to these dogs!

Does anyone know where I can find a greyhound in Alberta Canada??
plantpot85
mmmm..... my Iggie was so quick to house train and can hold his bladder for 10 hours if needs be... its not the breed its the owners which causes slack house training and accidents

I know a lot about shepards, and I trained aggressive Pitbulls back to mild temperance and german Shepards. I am currently looking at this breed only after a lot of experience with training dogs. I can't imagine this being a first breed for someone or a family dog.

I guess this is why Jenna finds poop surprises every now n then. Haha.
