The Untold Secrets to the Norwegian Elkhound dog breed- In Less Than Ten Minutes
We all love our pets, don’t we? No matter if we prefer dogs over cats, cats over dogs, or alligators over rhinoceroses, we still can’t help but love our little fur balls, can we? So, in order to be able to satisfy our pet’s needs, we need to know everything about it. In this short article we will be listing some of the most intriguing secrets about the Norwegian Elkhound dog breed. If you have one yourself, or if you’re just thinking about getting one then do so right away, because they are some of the best pets in the world.
One of the things you must know before you actually decide whether you want a Norwegian puppy or not is if you have the time for them. A lot of people believe that, like with any other dogs, these dogs will go on adventures when you leave them alone. They will start doing whatever they can do waste their time and then they’ll wait for you, but that’s just not true. Norwegian Elkhounds are notorious for how lonely they get when they can’t see their master around. They start howling, they get nervous, and then they start getting violent. Keep in mind that the breed is not violent itself, it’s just that if they’re alone then they tend to get grumpy and they could even prove to be dangerous when approached by strangers if they’re feeling violent.
Another little known fact about the Norwegian puppy is the fact that the breed can last a very long time under cold temperatures, but it cannot handle the heat. Make sure that you keep yours well hydrated and that they’re near an AC at all times during hot summers.
Norwegian Elkhounds are not extremely hard to train, but they are not that easy either. They can be quite a challenge, unless you make sure that you make a schedule that the dog can follow. For example, a ten-minute training session is more than enough for the Norwegian Elkhound, any more than that and the dog will lose interest. Make sure that you play with them after the training session too, so the dog isn’t too tired to train.
Last but not least, make sure that your Elkhound puppy cannot escape and run off. You will never see that dog again. They get so into hunting their prey that they will end up running across the street and all the way to the end of the street. This is a major problem because the Norwegian Elkhound doesn’t have the memory capacity to remember to return back home. Keep your doors closed at all times and your fences up to avoid this from happening.
