Italian Greyhound Puppies Piccolo Levriero Italiano and socialization. Farm Lupavaro

Puppies and socialization. It is important to us that kittens also come into contact with other breeds and cats. Our puppies grow up together with Rescue dogs, they get used to the presence of dogs of other breeds / sizes from an early age. Lots of sun, lots of movement and even the fights between puppies, ensure that everyone grows in the best way, socializing with other breeds and putting on excellent muscles. In the group, the puppies first learn the "canine" language, which is important to avoid "misunderstandings" in their future life. Puppy socialization is very important for the Piccolo Levriero Italiano. It serves not to misunderstand and not to be misunderstood, once he is an adult. A dog that understands well above all OWN language, will be able to read properly the signsgiven by other dogs and behave accordingly. This is one of the reasons, why we do not give away our puppies before 3 months of life ( XNUMX weeks , if the new family lives abroad), so that socialization can be crossed , that is, with both the canine and the human pack and of course the external environment, exploring the world during our walks on a leash, naturally after the necessary vaccinations.

And when can they “move” to the new family? 

Please don't ask me to give you a puppy after 60 days, only because ENCI would allows that. We would never make our little ones lose, what was described in the previous paragraph. We do not give drugs to the nursing mothers, our girls are free to breastfeed their puppies as long as they want. Nature always follows its course, and the weaning process will be gradual and in a completely natural way.Our puppies are never be physically separated from their mothers. The female chooses autonomously when to get away and take some "time off", she always has places "unreachable for the "little monsters", so she can relax, when she wants or eat a treat without nasty "intruders"

Our talian Greyhound puppies also start learning to go on a leash, relaxed and in the company of their mother and siblings. We give each puppy its own tailormade collar and leash, , in addition to the cover with the smell of mother and siblings. They will soon learn to trust the new family too, but don't expect them to follow you from day one: you have been waiting for the arrival of the puppy for weeks and you have already loved him for a long time. The puppy doesn't know this! To him you will be, initially, simply strangers. Therefore it takes patience to make sure that the little one trusts you. In order to avoid stress for the dog and the family, we advise you to equip yourselves, initially, with a soft one pettorina anti-escape (double H) it's a greyhound collar that fits to measure

The great Sighthound legacy

Charles I in 1624 brought the first specimens from France to England, his intention was to cross them with some terrier breeds to give life to a hunting dog of elegant stature. These attempts were also made in subsequent generations, giving birth to the Whippet breed.

During the English Revolution and the beheading of Charles I, all the dogs were stolen and scattered throughout the territory. In Germany the breed has won great honors thanks to Frederick the Great, who was never without the company of his Italian greyhounds; he must have had between 40 and 80 specimens.

Frederick the Great of Prussia adored his Italian greyhounds. His favorites were called "Biche" († 1752) and "Alcmene"(† 1785). Although in the paintings, which depict "the old Fritz", the dogs at his side seem to be larger in size but this is to be attributed to the fact that the Painters tried to give greater effect to the paintings by increasing the size of the greyhounds depicted.
Here is a statue that depicts him with "Alkmene" and "Hasenfuss"

Two years before his death, already marked by advanced age, old Fritz, (editor's note: "Fritz" is the German nickname of FFrederic II) like every year, the King held the great parade of his Silesian troop. He paused a few moments and looked around, with a very dissatisfied and frowning expression. His mood throughout this year's demonstration was terrible. He did not speak to anyone, his attitude was cold and detached, bordering on rudeness. During dinner he even ignored Lafayette and disappeared from the table after an hour of discomfort. "Didn't any missive arrive?" he asked in the silence, in his high, captivating voice, often in contrast with the sharp words. An aide hastily stepped forward to report. No new missive had arrived.
