Looking after your greyhound is easy; here's our guide to getting started!
The following information will help you and your new pet get to know each other and to build a relationship that will last for many happy years ahead. We are always available to help and advise how to care for and train your greyhound.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We do not recommend that you use an extendable lead.A greyhound can accelerate from a standing start to nearly 40 mph in no time at all and with an extendable lead, the potential for disaster is all too obvious. We do not advise letting your dog off lead in a public place as they are sighthounds and will probably chase if given the opportunity. Over time, you will get know your dog better and will be able to decide if it is safe to do so. We recommend that your dog be muzzled when off the lead.
