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 consider the crate my safe space and don't mind being in there at all for reasonable amounts of time. If the door is left open, I will put myself inside to rest.
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: We are working on it!
I know how to use a supervised dog door when the humans are home
A little more about me and my personality: I love to give kisses and when I get excited I can't stop jumping❤ I have never been separated from my mom, Noelle, and must be able to stay with her. She is a beautiful Italian Greyhound and is 14 years old.
