AFGHAN HOUND CLUB BREEDERS OF MERIT

As pets, Afghan Hounds are very affectionate. They are aloof, dignified, affectionate, and sensitive but can also act the clown. Afghans need training and firm control to keep their instinctive habits in check. These dogs are very independent characters, and will do what they want to, and not be your slave. This often gives them the reputation of being dumb, but this is not so. They can be highly intelligent and are independent thinkers. However, some have been trained for obedience work.
Afghan Hounds require space to exercise. They have high stamina levels and need daily walks. They can easily jump high fences or even dig their way under them. Running free may be a problem unless you can find a completely enclosed and well-fenced area.
