Italian Greyhounds/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I can answer many questions about training, behavioral issues, health, and conformation. Also I can answer questions about what types of dogs these are and if this is the right breed for you.

Experience in the area

I have worked with Italian Greyhounds in both showing and rescue for over 5 years, experienced almost every type of issue with this breed that could be imagined and have successfully trained, many "untrainable" dogs. I have been responsible to find homes suitable for IG's and have had an excellent success rate in placements into a "forever" homes of dogs given to rescue or turned to rescue by shelters that would have otherwise euthanized.

Education/Credentials

I have learned most of what I know through mentorships with breeders of the breed that have been involved for 20 years, asking a lot of questions and paying attention to the dogs signals.

Without knowing where these IGs came from and thier individual circumstances, I would assume they have been medically checked out for worms and cancer, that can steal the nutrients from the body. You didn't

2014-11-13 potty training:

Hello! Well I have to say this is the most common question about IG's and the most frustrating. IG's can take several years to be completely potty trained. The average IG will be a year to three years
