WE NEED YOU BACK!

I have sent an email to Dogs Today but as I suspect they will get thousands mine stands little chance of being published. If you're interested here's what I wrote.

EMMA MILNE, HOW DARE YOU! After everything that has been said and written about “deed not breedâ€

Yay Greyhounds! Not that I'm biased you understand. Very interesting programme. I take your point Em about homing sisters. I wonder tho whether finding homes for thousands of greyhounds every year is so hard that wherever Roxy and Rio came from were just relieved to get two more off their books. I c...

I was really impressed with Chaos's owners. What a lovely couple, clearly devoted to doing the best they could for him. OK they had to have a few things pointed out but how many of us have a "blind spot" when it comes to our dogs. Well done them. And VS was her usual calm, determined, organised, inf...

Oops! Just realised you are in NZ. Here's the website for the magazine http://dogstodaymagazine.co.uk/. It's a lengthy article with details of the training methods used. I'm sure they would send you the December issue if you can't get it where you are.

Greyhound special?

In light of recent news stories about gruesome discoveries it is apparent that there are still many, many greyhounds seeking a permanent sofa. I am convinced that many people avoid ex-racers believing they are impossible to train and will never settle into a normal home. We have two ex-racers and wo...

Methods for greyhound training, behaviour not speed!

Does anyone here have experience of training ex-racing greyhounds? I have two. By and large they are v.well behaved and don't need much correction. But. There are some aspects of their behaviour that need addressing and I'm finding it incredibly hard to make progress. One has damaged his hocks in th...
