A super Christmas present
for all greyhound lovers and owners

. . . Give them time to learn to understand what you want of them and talk to them because even if they don't understand your words, they understand your voice. . . .

. . . Many things people take for granted in this world of ours are strange to a Greyhound who's spent most of it's life in kennels. Items such as cyclists, horses, lorries, fairgrounds, trains, washing machines and glass doors are all alien to them. . .

. . . A Greyhound is the only known breed of dog who recognise their own breed. Some Greyhounds living in kennels are not socialised with other breeds of dogs so find they don't know what these 'creatures' are when they come into the big outside world. For all they know they could be creatures from another planet come to get them. As a new Greyhound owner it is your responsibility as 'pack leader' to help them through this stage without encouraging fear. Just because people know they are other dogs don't assume your Greyhound does. . .

. . . Your Greyhound will thrive on love and affection but only if you become his pack leader to provide him with the rules, boundaries and limitations, which he needs and to which he must abide. Dogs who understand these become stable and happy dogs. Feeling sorry for him because he’s a rescue dog does not help him.

. . . No matter how old a dog is or for how long a dog may have had an issue it is never too late to change him.  This is because a dog doesn’t live in the past as do humans. Don't label the dog's issue on it coming from a rescue centre because a dog lives for today, not in the past and will change if helped. He just needs time . . . . .

. . . It is important that the complete dry food people feed their Greyhounds contains less than 20% protein. Giving them a food with more than 20% can induce hyperactivity and similar behavioural problems that are avoided by using the correct Greyhound food. . .

. . . Separation anxiety - Dogs who chew are frustrated and anxious so chew to release an endorphin in the brain that helps to calm them down - the importance of 'stay there, back soon' . . .

. . . Always put the collar on and fasten it just behind the ears because this is where the neck is at its narrowest. This means when your greyhound shakes its head it can't shake it out of the collar because it isn't loose enough as it would be if placed on the neck lower down . . .

. . . Never pick a Greyhound up under their stomach as this area is full of vital organs, the correct way to pick them up is to 'scoop' them up like this. . . .

. . . If your dog is off the lead and won't come back to you, use the 'DIG' method to get him to come to you. If you do it right, his curiosity will get the better of him because he has to come to see what you are doing. This is how you do it . . .
