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 dont like to be in a crate but do great being in a confined area when I am home alone.
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
I know how to use designated potty pads indoors
A little more about me and my personality: I am spunky and have a good amount of energy. I am curious and like to explore inside and out. I like to meet new people and get along with all other dogs I have been around. I am easy going but watch your food around me because I love to eat. I enjoy going for walks and have a beautiful stride. I like to receive affection but then do my own thing.
