With Deerhounds, as with many other breeds, consistent training and a clear line are extremely important for successful training. An advantage of the breed is that the dogs are very eager to learn and subordinate themselves quickly.
Tip: A visit to a puppy group and a subsequent dog school visit are ideal additions to the conventional training of your pet and can offer good help, especially for beginners.
They want to obey and please their owner. The closer the contact to your Deerhound, the more gratifying the learning success and the relationship between human and animal.
Tip: It is particularly important that your Deerhound responds to recall commands and comes back quickly if he should leave the country.
A Deerhound tends not to bark as compared to other breeds. These are reserved dogs that bark little. They also do not like to be left alone and prefer to be around people.
Due to its natural hunting instinct, the Deerhound has a pronounced urge to explore. It is not uncommon for him to explore the surrounding forests and meadows during a walk. Depending on the upbringing, a Deerhound may develop a tendency to run away due to its activity level.
