More details about the Hungarian Greyhound

Hungarian Greyhound: Origins and history

The Agár probably followed the native Hungarian Magyars to the region around Transylvania and the Carpathians (in today’s Romania) in the 10th century. He remained a common hunting dog throughout the centuries. Indeed, it is suggested that in Socialist times, these dogs roamed the streets, and hunters might pick one up for a job! Over years of working around mountainous areas and travelling with nomads, the Magyar Agar has become a truly long-range, high-stamina hunter.

FCI classification of the Hungarian Greyhound

Training a Hungarian Greyhound

The education of greyhounds must always be delicate, gentle and positive to achieve great results. Brutality and violence absolutely do not work and make these dogs very unhappy.
