Walking on a leash I walk very well on a leash and enjoy going for walks
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 at night but don't like spending much time in there during the day
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!
A little more about me and my personality: I am a very handsome boy who is still very much like a puppy in my behavior. I am still learning my manners & boundaries. I think I would do fine as a only dog although I do love playing with my foster siblings. I love to sit on your lap or be held...Mom  calls me her lover boy! I give great neck snuggles. I am extremely social. I need someone who has the time, patience and willingness to help me become the great dog I know I can be.
