Scottish Deerhound...


Scottish Deerhounds may have arrived in Scotland over 3000 years ago with the Phoenician traders. Originally, ownership of Scottish Deerhounds was restricted to the noble class. They were developed for and used to hunt deer very successfully for many hundreds of years. The Scottish Deerhound is similar in general appearance to the Greyhound, but is larger and more muscular in stature. The Scottish Deerhound has grace, dignity and beauty. As a companion, the Scottish Deerhound is ideal, being tractable and easy to train and possessing the most dependable loyalty and utmost devotion to their masters. Scottish Deerhounds are gentle, active, loyal, and tranquil. They are intelligent, strong-willed, but very attached to its owners.

They have wiry rough hair on their bodies, but on the stomach and chest it is soft. The Scottish Deerhound's crisp, somewhat wiry coat, has the felicitous quality of being exceptionally easy-care. Even long neglected grooming can be set right in very short time. Some trimming and stripping is required, but little skill is needed. This breed is an average shedder. The coat should be brushed regularly, and excess hair in the ears and on the their feet should be plucked.
