Irish Wolfhound Characteristics

The distinguished Irish Wolfhound was originally used by soldiers in wartime, as well as for hunting deer and wolves. Today, these dogs are more commonly found as household companions or competing in obedience, tracking, and lure coursing. With early socialization and obedience training, these dogs are loyal and affectionate members of the family.

Fast Facts

  • Energy
  • Size
  • Trainability
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. 
 

How dog-friendly is Kansas?

Kansas is a great state for dog lovers. The “sunflower state” compares well to other states for things like animal welfare regulations, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.


We looked at two important studies ranking each of the states by these pet-friendly factors. The first study was conducted by Pawsafe, an animal advocacy group. In their study, Kansas is ranked as the 11th most pet-friendly state. The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


The other study was conducted by Safewise, a consumer review site for safety across the country. In their study, Kansas is ranked as the 12th most pet-friendly state in the country!  


Combining these two studies places Kansas towards the front of the pack of pet-friendly states.

A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study reviews the nation’s 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks per capita. Wichita scored in the 66th position, with 0.7 parks per 100,000 people.
