Verified Reviews for Greyhound
Friendly, fast and facile - Lynne,
One of the most misunderstood breeds of dog I've ever come across. Yes, they are super fast, but they're also the laziest dog you will find! They are built for short burst of speed and the rest of the day, they sleep. They are large dogs but need very little exercise. Best to only let them off lead in an enclosed area due to their speed and inability to be good at recall but they're just as happy on a lead walking by your side. The need little to no grooming and are very clean dogs. Most are not cat friendly but they are very human friendly, particularly with children. As huge food lovers, they can be trained basic things with treats. They are very much gentle giants who like to 'lean' whilst being petted due to their awkward sitting positions (this is because of their powerful back legs). You'll find that all owners would never have any other breed of dog once they taste greyhound life. So easy, so friendly and if you rescue one after it's racing days, they are so appreciative of a comfy sofa.
Greys - James,
Greys are the best!
Greyhounds Rock! - Jessica,
My greyhound Mrs Flannel (Flanny for short) is such a kind natured dog. She's really friendly with children and the elderly gents. We started obedience lessons early and it really paid off. She can also stand on her two back feet and can hop on demand!
A cracking breed with plenty of love to give - Mark,
I've two greyhounds Desmond-Cheese and Panthermonkey (one word). Both have great temperaments and are fairly easy to train. Panthermonkey can walk on her back legs and Desmon-Cheese can say the word Cheese (Hence her name). They don't malt too much and take well with children and elderly. Both have their own kind personality. Desmond-Cheese love nothing more than being sat by the fire for hours on end. As puppies they are quite delicate and are prone to leg injuries.
