Socialization and obedience training for this pup should be focused on interaction with other dogs. This sight hound was developed to hunt on its own, which means it can be wary of other canines and has a strong prey drive. However, it loves people more than anything else and is loving, gentle, and patient with small children. Given plenty of exercise, they make excellent family pets.
