Raising a Wolf Dog: A Family Pet With a Lot of Responsibility
Wolves are one of the most misunderstood animals in North America. They are typically associated with being vicious and dangerous, but they can be loving pets and loyal companions to their humans. Owning a wolfdog is not an easy task, as there are many responsibilities that come with such a large animal.
Living Tiny With A Wolf is a blog that shares advice on owning and living with a wolfdog. The author, Nicoll, has been blogging about her and her husband’s experience raising their wolfdog since 2019.
In an interview with the owner Nicoll says “We love our pup very much but having him comes with a lot of responsibility. We have to make sacrifices and sometimes that’s not easy.” She goes on to say “My hope is that by being transparent about our experience and what it means to live with a wolfdog, others can understand that this type of pet requires a lot of time and attention.”
Nicoll’s blog shares insights into how wolfdogs are different from other dogs, and her experience raising a wolf-dog by answering some of the most common questions. From their diet requirements, grooming needs, how big they’ll get, as well as their behavioral tendencies. Read more about what it’s like owning a wolfdog on her blog.
