The Greyhound is not an aggressive dog, as some may believe due to muzzles worn during racing. Muzzles
are worn to prevent injuries resulting from dogs nipping one another during - but more likely immediately
after a race - when the 'hare' has disappeared out of sight and the dogs are no longer racing but still
excited. The thin skin of the Greyhound can tear easily from a small nick from teeth so even a minor
skirmish can result in stitches and time out from racing. Greyhounds with a high prey drive occasionally
wear muzzles outside the racetrack; owners aware that their Greyhound has a high tendency to chase
small prey will protect small prey by applying the muzzle.

Contrary to popular belief, adult Greyhounds do not need extended periods of daily exercise, as they are
bred for sprinting rather than endurance. Greyhound puppies that have not been taught how to utilize their
energy, however, can be hyperactive and destructive if not given an outlet, and they require more
experienced handlers

GREYHOUND
More than a whirring blur around a
racetrack, the Greyhound has dashed into
the homes, hearts and show rings of fanciers
everywhere. Originally prized for his speed
and agility, today’s Greyhound is an
admirable pet animal, with a gentleness and
nobility befitting a dog of ancient lineage. For
the right owners, the Greyhound, whether
acquired as a puppy or as a rescue dog, is a
mild-mannered yet athletic companion dog,
as affectionate as he is active.

This new book provides owners with clearly
written, sound advice about caring for the
Greyhound, from the selection of a puppy
and the adoption of an adult to obedience
training, health care and behavior.

All readers will welcome the author’s insight
on housebreaking and preparing for the dog’
s arrival as well as the temperament and
characteristics of the breed and the care of
the senior dog. This comprehensive owner’s
guide is not only authoritative and reliable
but also beautifully illustrated with over 135
full-color photographs.
