About Irish Wolfhound

You know the type of friend that will come over after you’ve just gone through something really difficult, like a breakup, and after you’ve spent a couple hours with them you’re laughing and enjoying life, and you’ve totally forgotten about the hard times you were going through? This is the Irish Wolfhound. The Irish Wolfhound is a happy and optimistic dog that doesn’t let anything bother them. They tend to form very strong relationships with their owners and they are all about having a great time.

Irish Wolfhounds are strong and athletic and they require daily exercise to stay calm and happy. They are active enough to want to join you on outdoor activities, like a day hike, but keep in mind that as a site-hound, Irish Wolfhounds will most likely become distracted by small critters along the trail.
