The Afghan Hound and Belgium Sheepdog can be stubborn and wary of strangers. It is a good idea to include socialization during their activity time including going on walks around the neighborhood, visiting the dog park or participating in a class or dog sport. Your dog does not necessarily need to be socialized with people and other dogs every single day, but you will want to include socialization at least two or three times a week. A large fenced in back yard is needed for him to run and play when he is home. Plan on spending at least 45 minutes a day with your dog exercising or playing fetch.
