Irish Wolfhound Breed Maintenance
An Irish Wolfhound is definitely not an apartment dog. He requires daily exercise. A fenced-in yard is necessary so that the Irish Wolfhound can get adequate exercise. This breed is not prone to a lot of shedding; it is considered an “average” shedder. It is recommended that you regularly brush the coat (perhaps very week) and every six months, and you or your groomer should pluck the coat in order to remove excess dead hair. The nails and teeth should not be neglected; a large dog should have his nails trimmed often as it is much easier to trim bit by bit. While one must be careful about feeding an Irish Wolfhound puppy – growth formula is never a good idea for this breed when very young – it is important to feed your Irish Wolfhound puppy a high-quality food. Stay away from high-protein formulas as well.
