My heart swells so much for this breed, it would be hard to find a dog that ticks so many boxes and is just so perfect in so many ways.

I TRAINED MY G-HOUND TO TROT ALONG SIDE ME ON MY MOUNTAIN BIKE ON SHADED TRAILS. I FIRST TIED A 6ft 1x1 OAK STICK TO MY HANDLE BARS, WITH A 6ft LEASH ATTACHED TO THE END OF THE STICK AND TO KELLY. BEGIN BY WALKING AND SHOWING THE DOG THAT THIS SITUATION IS NOT THREATENING AND A FUN WALK IS ALL THATS HAPPENING. NEX, IN SEVERAL DAYS!! SIT ON THE BIKE'S LOWERED SEAT AND WALK TOGETHER. OBVIOUSLY, AT SMALL INCREMENTS, INCREASE THE BIKE SPEED IN A WEEK OR TWO. THEN, REMOVE THE STICK AND AT A V-SLOW SPEED HAVE THE DOG WALK AT THE SAME DISTANCE AWAY FROM THE BIKE AND NEVER AHEAD OF THE PEDALS. KELLY GOT A LOW-GRADE WORKOUT, 30 MIN, BETWEEN FREE RUNNING AT A BALLPARK EVERY OTHER DAY -- DONT MAKE UR GREY FAT AND STUPID!!

GREYHOUNDS DONT WANT TO SIT, OR THEY WOULD VOLUNTARILY ASSUME THAT POSITION OFTEN -- THEIR BONE STRUCTURE MAKES IT DIFFICULT, SO DONT MAKE AN AGING DOG AT THE ONSET OF ARTHRITIS SIT!!!!!

I have loved dogs all my life, and have owned many different breeds. They all have their wonderful personalities and characteristics. That said, one day I noticed a woman walking her Greyhound, so I stopped to talk and and most importantly, meet her dog. I was surprised to learn that he was a "couch potato," and I was deeply and dramatically impressed with how approachable and SWEET her dog seemed. If I had a larger home, I could absolutely see myself owning one. These dogs are truly special:)

tiffsaver You actually don’t need a large house - I have a unit with a small backyard and have two greyhounds. As long as they can have a regular walk they are happy. If you adopt a greyhound you will get a loving, adorable friend for life. You will never regret it!

Greyhounds will kill strange cats. They are sight hunters and just a little movement will get their attention. You can get caught off guard easily if you are not paying attention. They are the greatest couch potatoes in the dog world. I love them.

you think too short term. after the racing ends and they stop breeding them to be champions, what happens to the breed then ? you are killing an amazing breed in good faith due to lack knowledge and being fed lies from propagandists like Grey2k. There are very strict rules for racing greyhounds, perhaps look into the racing industry from both sides, as they say there is always 3 sides to a story. My greyhound would not exist without the racing industry. Is is selfish, well maybe but I really love my Grey and hope they get to continue to be the healthiest large breed ( due to racing ) for many years to come

While I love my Greyhound he did just get us kicked out of our apartment, guess its time to put my big boy shoe's on and buy us a house ! Never gone on a single walk and not been stopped by people who want to know all about him and other Greyhounds ( and I walk him at least 4 times a day ). Lucky for us they are giving me time to find a new place to live instead of just tossing us out right away.

@Sweet Cheeks Ran threw the kitchen window, twice =[. boy is so fast he didn't even get hurt however, he did get us kicked out, We now live in a house on 1.3 acres of land and have two very nice man made lakes near by that I take him on walks around on the weekends, he still gets 1 to two walks a day but they are much longer walks now. around the lakes is like 3.5 miles and around the block out here is 2 miles. Guess I should explain why he ran out of the windows, he got startled by a very loud car, poor fella likely thought godzilla was coming after him or something. both times I was at work and both times he ran right to the apartment office. The apartment manager told me if I could get him singed up as emotional support they wouldn't kick me out but I feel too many people abuse that for the wrong reasons, like this honestly would have been. sorry for being long winded but we are doing really well now and love our new home

Greyhounds aren't discarded after they retire. They either stay with their owner or go to adoption groups to get adopted. Every greyhound gets a home.

0:48 dog walks the owner AND walks her through the door. 1:11 making your dog wear a jumper in mild weather! There are still leaves on the trees 2:38 Dog walks owner 3:15 best APARTMENT dog? What are you Americans doing to these perfectly good working dogs? Is this the latest fad? Let the working dogs muscles deteriorate, treat it like a bloody poodle and dress it in clothes. Even let non active old people have them (sorry guys no offence). This is ridiculous. Adopt a Greyhound? I’ve even heard you yanks call them ‘gray’. WTF! The more I dig, the more upsetting it gets. You’re all gonna ruin the breed. These are working dogs, go get yourself a pug!

Regarding the wearing of a jumper - to me (I was a vet nurse) it looks like the greyhound has had surgery and it is wearing this to stop the dog from worrying the wound as it heals. We all know how itchy a wound can be while it heals.

No, they wouldn’t. They are sprinters and expel all their energy very quickly. They most certainly are NOT good for long runs! Long sleeps, definitely! You would be better off with a working breed that need a lot of exercise. Much better fit for you and the dog. 🙂

Absolutely not. They usually hate running. If they run it is very short runs at 40 miles per hour... and then they lay down and won't move. Not a jogging dog at all. You need a German shepherd or a Doberman or a border coley.

Mine took a while to settle in. Sally is 8, but I found her following me around the house, interested in my cooking, following me from room to room. (I'd say to myself 'I thought these were meant to be lounge lizards????') But 5 months later, we're now in a routine. Walking morning and afternoon. Now she's sleeping straight from 9.30am to 3.30pm (dinner and walk time approx 4pm), then back to bed by about 6pm-6am. So they just need time. You DO fall madly in love with them though. Some days we go to the beach and I do let her off the leash to play with other dogs in the surf. I've trained her in certain areas where she can swim to be off the leash.

I have had 6 so far and none have intentionally gone in their crates... occasional accident when they had worms or changing foods. And a couple of mine were straight off the track. it's ingrained in most dogs not to go where you eat or sleep. Greyhounds actually have more crate training than almost any other breed.

Great things about Greyhounds is they are older when you adopt, have more canine and human socialisation than most breeds and are crate trained. with any breed you can end up with one that has issues though. Going through an adoption group helps a lot. You give them your wants and needs in a dog, IE cat/small dog safe, and they do their best to match you with the perfect pup. if you vet one home and he just doesn't fit you can bring him back. I've had 6 so far, currently have 4. I've had 1 that was a bit skittish, remember they've never seen things that are in most households, and 1 that is a spook, scared of everything. I k we both of those before adopting them though.

Choctawnic Most dogs are good outside, but they don't need a lot of exercise and they get pretty tired. This may very from dog to dog , but the majority of the breed are quite lazy. So they might like the hike if you are thinking of getting a greyhound, but make sure it isn't too long.
