Cyclone is settling in well to family life. He is learning the word "no" very well, and is just beginning to learn his name and respond to it. Cyclone does very well with small dogs (and all dogs), and in fact, would do best if there is another Greyhound or another big dog in the family. He is a cat chaser, and we are working on "no kitty" to train him to stop chasing cats.
Cyclone is a fantastic dog and will adjust well, however he does have some anxiety, especially separation anxiety. He is very calm when with "his people", but does NOT enjoy being isolated or separated for any length of time. He crates well, but whines a lot and is very verbal the entire time in his crate unless he can see another person.
Cyclone is high energy (he is young, at 3 years old), walks very well on lead although is a little high energy when first going out. He settles down within 15 minutes and walks very well. He is an extremely large Greyhound and is very strong, so he needs a strong owner to help him continue to learn manners and respect his own size. Cyclone is one of the most loving dogs I've ever been with- he forms an attachment with people, and wishes he could be a lap dog! He responds well to correction, is not food-territorial, is tolerant of almost anything, and doesn't know his size! Cyclone will be a very good pet for any family that is home most of the time and/or has other dogs. He will do very well with bigger kids, but just because of his size, probably not so well with young/small children.
We are still working on house training and it is going well. He has completely mastered the stairs and walks very well on smooth floors.
