Every dog is a lap dog.
Yes, Even Irish Wolfhounds even though they can grow to be quite huge. Not only that but usually they are heavier than most humans. However, dogs don’t understand their size and will try to sit on your lap even when they’re bigger than you. And though it might break your legs, it is worth it at the end of the day. While it is understandable that it is quite daunting to take care of such a big dog, they are actually quite lovable under the surface.
In my experience, bigger dogs are much more calmer than small dogs. And Irish wolfhounds are just big goofs. While I am not saying that everyone should run out and adopt a wolfhound right now, they are adorable creatures who are very loyal. And it seems people who have wolfhounds love to compare their size with other things to show just how big they can get. And you can see these chuckle-worthy pictures for yourself by scrolling below.

Irish Wolfhounds are known for their calm nature but they can also be quite courageous in the right situations. They were first bred for hunting and they’re actually quite ferocious fighters if you train them well. But they have been domesticated since then or are used as farm hands. And you might think that they are hard to groom because of their size but they d not require a daily or regular washing.
They are also great to keep as family pets and they are great with children though you should always supervise when your pet interacts with your child. All in all, they are a great breed to keep as pets as long as you have the space necessary for them to roam free.
