Elkhound Dog Breed

The Definitive Guide To Elkhound Dogs

While they were the dogs of Vikings and their descendants, this breed is neither a hound, nor did it ever hunt elk. In Norse languages, Elkhound means moose dog. Today, they no longer hunt, but still keep up appearances with plenty of barking and foraging behaviors. They are distinctively intelligent, loyal, and deeply empathetic. However, obedience training should be accompanied with plenty of snacks.
