  1. My Grace has a low prey drive and she won't pay any attention to a cat, squirrel or rabbit when on her lead on a walk. She's even tried to give a cat who stayed put as we approached a friendly sniff. That is until they run...... which is why I keep her on the lead even in the park as I don't think I could trust her not to go after anything small and hairy that moves even if it was another small dog.
  2. Sounds like both of you are making good progress. When you leave him alone to go out put the radio on low tuned into a classical station so there is less chance of a sudden loud noise, or if you have an Amazon Alexa device ask it to play classical for pets. Also give him a Kong filled with kibble, peanut butter or whatever takes your fancy.
  3. I'm with greysmom on having the flexor tenotomy in that if your hound develops corns on the other pads what happens then. My Grace has corns on three of the pads on her front left foot and after trying various remedies I taken the decision that it is something we are both just going to have to live with and manage. I grind the corns down first thing every other day using a cordless nail grinder and put Burt's Bees Hand Salve on the corns. I put a baby sock and boot on her foot if she's going to walk on hard ground and take her to the park in the car so she can walk on the grass without go
  4. Was für ein hübscher Windhund Blame Google translate if that's wrong
  5. I assume you are taking him out last thing at night to pee and if he's happy in his crate then I've no problem with shutting him in. Is there something that is waking him up during the night? Are you going to the loo or is the heating switching on? You could get a pet cam with night vision to watch back in the morning to find out if anything is disturbing him
  6. To answer the furniture question. By the look of it it's too late to keep her off the furniture. Teach the down command so she'll get off the furniture when you want to use it and put a throw over the sofa and like the rest of us enjoy the sight of your hound making themselves at home Greyhounds don't rule the roost as such but both sides learn to live with each other and as long as they get fed, exercised and toilet breaks at roughly the same time each day they are happy. That is so true. The first few months you'll notice a rapid change with some backward steps as she processes
  7. In my opinion he needs to build up the muscle in his other legs and only use a support harness to aid him only when he definitely needs it. Is he undergoing any physiotherapy?
  8. No hole digging from Grace but when I first had her she hid the TV remote in her bed as well as my bridge camera which she had dragged off the table. Not a mark anywhere but a bit damp around the edges
  9. Thanks for your replies Grace survived. Not that I was in any doubt she would I picked her up an hour after leaving her at the vets. She then slept most of the day but eventually felt recovered enough to have a late tea. Yes my adoption kennels have restarted clipping sessions by appointment but they are to far away just to go to get her nails clipped. Perhaps once the Covid restrictions have been lifted and the paddock is available for the hounds to run around it will be worth considering. Good idea but not sure it would work with Grace as she gets that stressed she beco
  10. I've finally bitten the bullet and made Grace an appointment at the vets to have her overlong nails clipped under sedation and today's the day. Grace suffers from multiple corns so her walks have only been on grass or wearing boots. This means her nails aren't being worn down. She won't let me cut them with clippers and the electric nail grinder is next to useless. She used to go to a local dog groomers fortnightly to get them shortened but when she started to give the Greyhound Scream of Death whenever the clippers came near her feet she wouldn't see her any more. And before you ask, no
  11. From what others have said sleep startle tends to be something you have to learn to live with. Put his crate in your main room but leave the door open so he can come and go as he wants. Put a child gate across your bedroom door so he can sleep in the main room but still hear and see you but can't jump onto your bed. When you go to the bathroom say something to him if you need to go near where he's sleeping.
  12. I guess the rest of the cow is under the sand mountain....
  13. First squirrel: "Where's your brother?" Second squirrel: "Well. You know how he used to tease the dogs in the park?" First squirrel:"Yes" Second squirrel: "Some b*****d went and got a greyhound!"
  14. Grace, despite having a thick fleece for winter, a thin white cotton one for keeping cool in summer, a thinner fleece for those in-between days and a raincoat, won't wear one whatever the weather. She prefers to adjust the length of her walk instead
