Ask any dog owner and they'll tell you that their pup means more to them than life itself. It's natural and should be evident. Generally good with other dogs; do not trust with non-canine pets. Many Afghans are bathed every week in order to keep up the coats! You should ignore them and not overfeed your dog. How much your adult dog eats depends on his size, age, build, metabolism, and activity level.

This hound is generally not motivated by food and does not possess as strong a desire to please as many other breeds Golden Retriever , for example. I have tried other detangling sprays but I have never had much luck. The Afghan was highly valued for his ability to run — fast and over great distances — courageously holding dangerous animals, such as leopards, at bay until his huntsman on horseback caught up. The trick is to find ways to keep the dog motivated and having fun, while avoiding harsh techniques that will almost inevitably cause him to shut down. BlueXCyanightX July 12, at 2:
