The Scottish Deerhound is part of the hound group that was initially bred to chase wild red deer. This particular breed is one of the tallest Greyhound-type dogs. This purebred is known to be gentle, polite, and dignified, making an excellent family companion. If you want to learn more about Scottish Deerhound puppies, keep reading.

Where To Get Scottish Deerhound Puppies

The American Kennel Club recognizes this dog breed, so you’ll be able to find reputable breeders through the AKC Marketplace. When researching an ethical breeder, remember that they should always do the following:

  • Have the dogs live at home with them and treat them like family
  • Health screen and genetically test the dogs before breeding and then get the puppies tested
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to take home upon adoption
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations

In addition, the breeder won’t let the puppies go home before eight weeks of age. They’ll also be able to answer any of your questions about the process, the breed, the breeder, the parents, or the litter. Finally, they’ll want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the parents and the puppies.

If you find a breeder who doesn’t do the above, they’re most likely a puppy mill or backyard breeder. These breeders should be avoided since they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding good homes for the puppies. In addition, they don’t breed the dogs under healthy or safe conditions.

Finally, you can check with your local animal shelter or rescue organization if you don’t want to go through a breeder. These places might have Scottish Deerhound puppies, adults, or seniors who need a good home. Plus, you’ll gain a new furry friend. Lordbibbs…

The Cost

You can expect the average cost of this dog breed to be anywhere between $1,000 and $2,500. The price may vary depending on a few factors, such as the breed’s popularity, the breeder’s location, the time of year, or the puppy’s lineage, coat color, and age.

Temperament

Scottish Deerhound puppies enjoy the company of others. For instance, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members and love being around other dogs. However, when it comes to young children and new people, they’ll be wary at first. Luckily, early training and early socialization will get them used to others quickly.

This dog breed makes a great watchdog and will only bark to alert you if they feel as though something is off. Also, they’re fairly easy to train. Sometimes, they might have a mind of their own, but positive reinforcement and consistency will go a long way.

In addition, Scottish Deerhounds have moderate energy levels. So, they’ll be fine in an apartment or a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. A long, daily walk will be enough to keep them healthy and fit. Marli_and_willow…

Scottish Deerhound Puppies – Veterinary Needs

You can bring your Scottish Deerhound puppy to the vet a few times during their first year. This will allow you to keep track of their growth and development. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. Then, for each year after that, you can bring them to the vet once a year for their annual checkup.

However, this dog breed is prone to a few different health issues. For example, they’re known to get the following:

  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Gastric Torsion (Bloat)
  • Osteosarcoma
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Neck Pain
  • Cystinuria
  • Atopy

With proper care, though, through nutrition, exercise, and grooming, this dog breed has an average lifespan of about eight to 11 years.

Diet

You can feed this doggo anything that your vet approves. As long as it’s appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism, Scottish Deerhounds can eat anything. For example, they can have high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Grooming

It doesn’t sound like it, but the Scottish Derrhound’s wiry coat is easy to care for. You’ll need to brush their coat at least once a week to keep it clean and tangle-free. Also, they shed a moderate amount, so brushing weekly will also keep the loose hairs under control. In addition, be sure to trim their nails, brush their teeth, and clean their ears regularly.
