What are Norwegian Elkhound Puppies Personalities and Temperaments like?
The gorgeous Norwegian Elkhound dog breed, with its wolf-like face, delights in life. Smart as can be, they also have a wonderful sense of humor. Just make sure you can provide plenty of exercises to meet their high energy levels. Elkhounds do adapt well to apartment living and are good pets for novice owners. They do not tolerate being alone for long periods of time. Elkhounds have high marks for all-around friendliness. Norwegian Elkhounds are affectionate dogs who make devoted, wonderful family members. They're excellent with children and are terrific watchdogs, treating strangers with natural suspicion. They thrive on attention, and it's hard to find a more loyal companion.
Are Norwegian Elkhound Puppies good pets for families with kids?
An Elkhound is excellent with children and will play with and protect them. However, without careful obedience training, they may take over the role of pack leader and become dominant, especially toward children, less strong-willed adults, or other dogs.
As with every breed, you should always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. Teach your child never to approach any dog while he's eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog's food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.
What is the Lifespan of Norwegian Elkhound Puppies
The average expected lifespan of a Norwegian Elkhound Puppies is 9 - 14 years.
Norwegian Elkhound Puppies Grooming and Care Best Practices
A Northern breed, the Elkhound has a double coat that sheds dirt and is weather-resistant. The topcoat is short and thick and lies smooth. The undercoat is dense, woolly, and soft to the touch. Most of the year he doesn't shed too much, but two or three times a year he "blows coat" and sheds like crazy. He requires weekly brushing, possibly more when shedding; but his coat is easy to maintain.
