Peruvians love to play, they also like to dig A LOT. This is part of the breed, they are hunting dogs the mediums and small are ratters and digging up nests are what they do.
The large will also hunt mice rabbits and rats and just dig bigger holes. Make sure your dog is occupied with bones and toys (that cant be destroyed)
The do grow out of the destructive stage but it can be trying. Training your dog and doing things with it will reduce this behaviour, but it will still happen.

The Peruvian Hairless Dog is a breed that goes back at least 3,000 in Peru. They are a Sight hound with a well developed hunting instinct. Ancient Peruvians used them to catch small game and to destroy the rat population in the grain houses. The larger coated dogs were used to hunt larger game.


The dog comes in two varieties. Hairless and Coated.

We are of the opinion that the Coated is needed in the breeding programme to keep the breed healthy, and are very happy to see the FCI and Peruvian Kennel Club agrees. Coated are now a recognised part of the breed. As from 2015 cross size breeding has been allowed by the FCI in the case of rare breed such as the Peruvian Hairless.​
