Irish Wolfhound Characteristics

The distinguished Irish Wolfhound was originally used by soldiers in wartime, as well as for hunting deer and wolves.

With early socialization and obedience training, these dogs are loyal and affectionate members of the family.

  • Size Large
  • Trainability Determined

Standing around 32-35 inches to the shoulder and weighing between 115-180 pounds, the Irish Wolfhound is, on average, the tallest dog breed in the world. 
 
Because these dogs love to stretch their legs, apartment living is not recommended for this breed, even if they're provided with enough exercise. We recommend a house with a tall fence to allow your Irish Wolfhound room to roam. Between 40-60 minutes of exercise is recommended daily to ensure a healthy weight for your Irish Wolfhound. This can be accomplished through jogging, playing in the yard, bicycling, or learning obedience tricks and lure coursing. Once they've burned through their energy and have been mentally stimulated, Irish Wolfhounds are happy to be couch potatoes with their humans.
 
Irish Wolfhounds are considered relatively quiet inside and are so-so-watch dogs; they don't typically bark at strangers, but their size will likely scare away any potential intruders. The Irish Wolfhound also has a relatively short life span compared to other large dogs and is prone to a number of health issues that require regular monitoring. They come in white, black, red, or grey and have a unique wiry coat that sheds a medium amount. Frequent brushing and regular grooming will be important for keeping stray hair around the house to a minimum.
