Norwegian Elkhound

Height: 19.5-20.5 inches

Weight: 44-55 lbs.

Life Span: 13-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Northern

Overview
This affectionate, energetic, strong, and courageous dog makes a devoted family pet. A firm, patient owner and early socialization and obedience training are crucial.

The elkhound is noisy and therefore a good watchdog, but it is not aggressive toward people. Although this dog can live in the city, it is better suited for the suburbs or country.

Appearance
The Norwegian elkhound's outercoat is thick, coarse, and straight; the undercoat is soft, dense, and woolly.
Coat color is gray with black tips. The muzzle, ears, and tail tip are black; the legs, stomach, buttocks, and underside of the tail are silver.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The Norwegian elkhound's coat needs to be brushed and combed one to two times a week. This energetic dog needs several long, brisk walks and runs as well as playtime in a secure area daily.

Origins
The Norwegian elkhound, a favorite of the Vikings, originated in Norway thousands of years ago and was used primarily for hunting.

Breed-related health concerns: congenital kidney problems, progressive retinal atrophy, cataracts, glaucoma.
