Adjusting to life post-racing and learning to live in a new home must seem like landing on an alien planet to many ex-racing greyhounds. The life of a racing greyhound is very different to that of a pet dog, as their life tends to revolve around the track and the routine of kennels.
If you’ve just adopted a retired racing greyhound, our specialist ex-racing greyhound training consultations are just for you!
With our specialist greyhound consultations, we can help you and your hound adjust to their new life as a family pet. Susan has a special interest in greyhounds and has direct experience of working in racing kennels, working with a greyhound rehoming charity, training cat-friendly hounds to live with cats, undertaking 1-2-1 greyhound training consultations, running greyhound-only training classes and training her own greyhounds in fun doggy disciplines such as agility and nose work. She has also revised and rewritten the training leaflets for the Retired Greyhound Trust, which you can read and download here.
Every ex-racing greyhound is different and some adjust to life and new situations fairly quickly, whilst others may take more time and training. With Susan’s guidance, we can help your hound adjust to their new life.
*Please note: Not all greyhounds can sit, or go into the ‘down’ positions easily. If your greyhound does not sit naturally and finds sitting awkward, they will not be expected to sit.
Depending on your hound’s needs you will receive a range of hand-outs and a tailored training plan.
