Crate training-please note that we teach crating as a 'safe happy personal space' where the IG can rest/sleep when confinement is necessary. Crates should NEVER be used as a punishment or 'time out' space.I do just fine being in my crate for reasonable amounts of time.
Italian Greyhounds are known for housebreaking issues and most will have occasional accidents. Many come to us as surrenders due to excessive potty accidents indoors. This is typically the result of poor potty routines within the previous home so we do typically get them on track fairly quickly. As an IG parent you must be willing to commit to a structured and reasonable routine to keep your iggy from having excessive indoor accidents. My house-training Status is:Very rare or no indoor accidents
NO ACCIDENTS
A little more about me and my personality:VERY VERY SWEET DISPOSITION.
DOES NOT LIKE TO BE ALONE.
SINCE HE IS BLIND, IF LEFT ALONE, HE WILL START BARKING UNTIL YOU TOUCH HIM.  SOMETIMES TOUCHING HIM IS NOT ENOUGH AND YOU HAVE TO PICK HIM UP AND HOLD HIM TO MAKE HIM FEEL SECURE.HE DOES LIKE TO BE HELD A LOT.BECAUSE OF HIS BARKING WHILE ALONE IS WHY WE DO NOT THINK AN APARTMENT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA.
