Scottish Deerhound Grooming and Breed Care

Scottish Deerhound Temperament

The Scottish Deerhound is a giant of a dog, with a certain regal charm, elegance, and dignity about him. Very loyal and devoted, the Scottish Deerhound is a docile and loving breed, and is a bad choice for those looking for a watchdog or guard dog! These dogs have great agility and speed, and need plenty of space to run around and exercise, although they are not demanding in terms of walks and accompanied exercise. However, that is not to say that he will appreciate being neglected, as he does thrive on the affection and devotion of his owner and family. A fenced and secure area for the Scottish Deerhound to exercise and run is essential for his own safety, as he can be up, off, and away in next to no time. Although Scottish Deerhound puppies can be boisterous and energetic, these dogs tend to be very calm when they are older, and do enjoy their creature comforts.

He may give chase to small animals such as little dogs and cats, but tends to get along okay with household dogs. The Scottish Deerhound is not a demanding breed, and his quiet, calm dignity and grace makes him ideal for those that want a solid, dependable companion who is not clingy.
