Phelix was our first Pharaoh Hound. A few of the reasons we fell in love with the breed were high energy, intelligence, and their independence - Phelix did not let us down in any of those areas! Our intention when seeking out the perfect PH was to find a pup that would be a great companion and a versatile performance dog. We have never had a show dog, and had 0 experience in the breed ring. But since Phelix was a handsome boy, we thought we would give conformation a try and have fun learning. Phelix finished his AKC Grand Championship, 100% owner-handled.
Phelix was a very busy and versatile dog with a lot of drive, which was perfect as we kept him active in a number of different sports. Phelix earned his RLP (APDT/World Cynosport Rally Puppy title) at just 6.5 months old, followed by his AKC RN at 8 months, and CGC at 9 months - he was such a smart boy! He competed in lure coursing, racing, rally, conformation, obedience, freestyle, and agility. Phelix was also learning nosework and had obtained his Birch ORT before we lost him, which was one of his favorite things to do after coursing and racing. He was very eager to try new things, so we used a lot of shaping to train new behaviors and agility obstacles. Although Phelix loved the variety of sports we did, his passion was certainly lure coursing. He was an amazing runner, a dog many only dream of having on the field.
Contrary to many sighthounds, Phelix loved to play, swim, and dive into the water. During the summer, we would take him boating. He would bark and jump with excitement as we walked him down to the dock to get in the boat. We would take him out to a sandbar where he could jump off the boat and play fetch in the water. Phelix loved frisbee, tennis balls, or anything that moves for that matter. His other "interests" included playing in the snow, digging, and attempting to climb trees.
We could not have asked for a better first Pharaoh Hound. His puppy name was two-hearts, and while it was given to him due to his markings, he lived up to it as he loved so much. He taught us so much, everything he did with passion. Phelix was our heart dog.
