Borzoi Dog Temperament

A breed of quiet elegance, the Borzoi exemplifies the well-mannered house dog. Outdoors, he races with wild abandon, and it will chase any small animal that runs. He is independent but very sensitive. Although generally good with children and some can be timid. He is reserved with strangers.

Borzoi Dog Care

The Borzoi needs the chance to exert itself daily. Although a long walk can satisfy most of his needs, it should be combined with a sprint in a large safe area. The coat, which is characteristically fuller on males, needs brushing or combing two or three times a week; at times he sheds a lot. Borzois do best as house dogs with access to a yard.
