An easygoing animal, Irish wolfhounds are quiet by nature. Wolfhounds often create a strong bond with their
family and can become quite destructive or morose if left alone for long periods of time. Despite the need for
their own people, wolfhounds generally are somewhat stand-offish with total strangers. They should not be
territorially aggressive to other domestic dogs but are born with specialized skills and it is common for hounds
at play to course another dog. This is a specific hunting behavior, not a fighting or territorial domination
behavior. Most wolfhounds are very gentle with children and are aware of their size and power. The Irish
wolfhound is relatively easy to train. They respond well to firm, but gentle, consistent leadership. However,
historically these dogs were required to work at great distances from their masters and think independently
when hunting rather than waiting for detailed commands and this can still be seen in the breed.
