Borzois are aristocratic looking sight hounds from Russia that are amazing runner sand require large spaces to run. To witness their full beauty when running it is best to find a fenced-off area, as once they take on speed not much can stop them.
Borzois are happiest when they can run fast for short periods. At home they are happy to lounge around and relax. They are quite attached to their owners and will follow them around. Because of their strong chasing instincts, it is important to train Borzois from a very young age. If anything moves, their instincts to chase will kick in and you may not be able to stop them…they will chase until they drop!
Having two Borzois is a great idea so they can entertain themselves when you are at work. Borzois like company, preferably 24/7, from either a human or another dog.
This breed is brave and they needed to be as their job in the past was to chase larger animals, like horses, wolves, foxes and rabbits.
Borzois make great family dogs and are relaxed and chilled at home. They need a house with a garden, where you will find them outside sunbathing from time to time.
They have amazing eyesight and if you take them on walks where there is wildlife around, you may find it extremely hard to hold them back. Your Borzoi will spot the wildlife before you and teaching them to come back is of utmost important.
