Afghan hounds are sight hounds and this means that they love to chase things. A stroll through the neighborhood after dinner is not going to be enough exercise for this dog. Also, they don’t do well in small areas and really need a large yard to romp and play in on a daily basis. They can jump very high so a fence around your yard is an absolute necessity to prevent them from chasing your neighbor’s pets.
If you live in an apartment or have do not have access to a large area for exercise an Afghan hound probably isn’t the best choice for you. These dogs are so energetic that if they aren’t given a chance to work off some of that excess energy unpleasant and even neurotic behavior can develop. They always need proper dog leashes to help them walk as well.
