Borzoi are bigger than you think, with adult males standing at least 28 inches and up to 32 inches high at the shoulders and weighing upwards of 100 plus pounds. For a large dog, they eat a relatively small amount compared to another dog their size.

The Borzoi is a type of sighthound that uses their eyes to find and chase their prey while they hunt. They happen to also be a part of the Hound group that use their noses to locate and follow the scent of prey. Although they are sighthounds, Borzoi can be taught to detect and follow smells

Lure coursing was created to allow sight hounds like the Borzoi to compete in simulated hunting situations.The course consists of a zigzag path of at least 500 yards with a motorized line-and-pulley system which pulls a plastic lure, usually made of strips of white garbage bags, and the dogs are released to run after it.
