The Afghan hound is often recognized as dogs that have loyalty to one family or one person. Although it is not very friendly to the guests, it does not show any aggression. Afghan hounds, which are far from the guard dog character, prefer to leave the environment by barking against strangers a few times at most.

The characters who are fond of the independence of Afghan hounds make it harder to train. It is very difficult for them to be trained by non-professionals, as they do not pay much attention to the prizes. Even in professional dog shows, you can witness that they do not want to make tricks that are taught many times.


This breed likes to be in a closed environment with the family. Although they have a calm structure in the house, they need exercise like any other dog. It is recommended to roam your dog on a leash daily or release it in a sufficiently large area surrounded by fences.

The Afghan hound is known as an escape master. If you are going to feed in your garden, definitely keep your fence high. When you lose this race, which is very prone to escape, it will be very difficult to catch. Afghan hounds can run fast enough to cross even horses.

The characters who are fond of the independence of Afghan hound are suitable to live with adults rather than children. This race, which does not like being pursued or playing games when it does not want, may be disturbed by the movements of children. The Afghan hound is not recommended to live with children.
