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
I know how to use a supervised dog door when the humans are home
A little more about me and my personality: Sutton is an Iggy who loves to hang out with his foster sisters and brother. He often lays in the same dog bed and cuddles with his buddies. Sutton will also snuggle with his humans. He smiles often which he often shows when he is hungry or just waiting to get directions. He enjoys eating his breakfast and dinner with his buddies. Sutton enjoys the freedom of going in and out of the doggy door to use the bathroom or bask in the sun. At night he wears a belly band to avoid any accidents. This is rare though! Sutton is playful and at times does some zoomies around the house.  He loves attention however, he can sit in his bed and just admire you. He will make someone so happy with his looks, personality, and love!!!
