For those familiar with the hound nature, independent and strong-willed, with a strong drive to hunt prey, the Segugio might make an entertaining and engaging companion. Better suited to those with older children and the time to spend walking, running and training their hound. Not suited for those who want a very biddable, responsive dog or families with very little time to spare.
While many dogs are traditionally thought of as being good with children, all dogs and children need to be taught to get on with each other and be safe together. Even so, dogs and young children should never be left alone together and adults should supervise all interactions between them.
