BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Afghan sheepdog is a cross breed between The Afghan Hound and Belgian Sheepdog. The equable dog is brave and demanding of itself, unsure of strangers, can be stubborn and dominant, is reasonably independent and very vigilant.

COLOR
They are found in brown-yellow colour. Sometimes they come in white, with brown or black markings, more or less profusely scattered over the bodies. Most acceptable colors are plain creeam to fawn with a black face and ears.

COAT
These breeds have a dense, shaggy but rather wooly coat. The outer protective coat is smooth with a sheen and mainly short, but longer around the collar and tail.

PERSONNALITY
They are very resilient to work but may seem lazy as they save energy for other tasks. These dogs generally get on well with other animals provided that they have been introduced to them when young. They are rather reserved towards strangers but there are seldom problems with children from their own family. They can be rather dominant towards other dogs. It's important to introduce the dog early in its life to its own kind, other animals, and people.

CARE
The Afghan Sheepdog requires little grooming. During the time when the dog is shedding use a comb with a double row metal teeth to remove the dead and loose hairs of the under-layer of the coat.

TRAINING
The Afghan Sheepdog is not a dog for beginners. It needs a handler who naturally radiates leadership. The best results are achieved with a determined, consistent, and loving approach. It is very important to begin training quite early because fully grown dogs are too strong and too big to be corrected.

ACTIVITY
Afghan Sheepdogs require a lot of exercise. When they can run in their own yard with a fence surrounding it, they can decide upon their own exercise needs. This breed is not suited to an apartment with their large size.
