Pharaoh Hound Breed Maintenance
The Pharaoh Hound's short and thin coat makes for easy maintenance. Weekly brushing with a rubber curry brush is ideal in order to remove dead hair. The Pharaoh Hound is not considered hypoallergenic and does shed an average amount. Bathing is only recommended when necessary in order to avoid overproduction of oils in the skin. Its nails must be trimmed every 2 to 3 weeks to prevent overgrowth or breakage. Teeth should be brushed weekly to maintain oral health. The Pharaoh Hound does not have an odor. This breed has much energy which he uses to run around, chasing objects, and utilizing his scent talent. He would benefit from high-level activities with intense play. This vibrant companion will also benefit from long walks and jogging in the neighborhood. This breed is best living in a home with lots of range outdoors to be able to roam around. However, if he is given free roam, it is highly recommended that a tall fence be installed as this breed can jump high distances and may choose to explore and hunt if not contained. The Pharaoh Hound fares best in a warmer climate due to his thin coat. His diet should be consistent with regular dietary needs for a high energy hound, to ensure he is provided with optimum care.
