This breed is an average shedder. The long, thick coat demands a great deal of grooming. When showing, weekly bath is a must. In order to keep the coat shiny and long never brush in-between baths. Brushing a dry coat will damage the coat and make it more easily matted. Even if your Afghan won’t be shown, weekly baths will make the coat less matted. Use a special air-cushioned brush or pin brush for grooming.

Problemas de Salud

This is a healthy, long-lived breed. It has a low tolerance of pain, thereby suffering even with minor injuries. Sensitivity to anesthesia is an issue the Afghan hound shares with the rest of the sighthound group, as sighthounds have relatively low levels of body fat. So be aware of this if yours were to require surgery. To make sure that you get a healthy dog, you should buy an Afghan Hound puppy from a reputable breeder.

Condiciones de Vida

This breed is not recommended for apartment life. As it is a large breed it needs plenty of space and would enjoy having a yard to exercise in. It loves to be outdoors and get plenty of exercise.
