The Silken Windhound is an affectionate, playful, and eager-to-please dog breed that is easily trained and loves families, including those with small children and pets. In fact, their affectionate nature makes them poor watchdogs. That’s because they are likely to react to strangers with warm greetings instead of barks or growls. As a relatively new breed, the Silken Windhound is not recognized by the American Kennel Club, though it was recognized by the United Kennel Club in 2011 and appears in shows and competitions around the world. Silken Windhounds can be trained for obedience, agility, and dog sports. Furthermore, they tend to pick up such training quickly and easily with their intelligence and desire to please the humans that they are close to. However their high prey drive must be redirected into positive behavior or they may bolt after small animals and wander. Although these dogs are easygoing most of the time and are happy to curl up on the couch with their families, they also have bursts of high energy and require exercise in the form of at least one long walk or run per day. If their exercise needs are met, they are happy to adapt to almost any living situation, including apartment life. Their long, beautiful coats come in a variety of patterns and colors, and despite their luxurious looks, they are surprisingly easy to maintain and do not shed excessively. Silken Windhounds make great, active family companions for novice and experienced owners, alike, and their long life span will keep them around for many years of love and affection.
