  1. So we’ve had 🍑 for nearly two months now and she’s become very vocal! We spoke to the shelter who gave us the advice to mark her barks so when she barked we opened the backdoor to go to the bathroom and if she continued to bark after that we were to ignore her, stand up and leave the room. It’s been a few weeks of us leaving the room when Peaches is barking but nothing seems to have changed, if anything she’s got a bit worse! She used to sit on her bed or on the sofa with us while we ate and was quiet however now she barks at us constantly while we’re eating. We have always praised her with “g
  2. So we’ve had 🍑 for two weeks now, and while she’s starting to come out of her shell she often gets bored in the evening. We’re taking her for 3 walks each day, one in the morning, one after work and one before bed, each one is a minimum of 25-30 minutes long. When we have to go out she’s left with a stuffed frozen kong and a few tough toys to keep her occupied and when we’re in the house with her she has her softer toys to play with. I know greyhounds don’t really know how to play with toys but while we’re around she has little bursts of playing (and destroying) but then gets fed up and paces
  3. Thank you all! The kong works a treat and she barely notices we’ve gone when she has it! Today I was able to leave her downstairs while I showered without any barking or crying too so hopefully we’re going in the right direction! Next on the list of things to tackle is walking without freezing every other step and restlessness at 9.30pm...! We’ll get there!
  4. Thank you. Once we’ve left she’s quiet, it’s just the initial separation that she doesn’t like. We don’t go to her or let her hear us when she barks for the reason you’ve said. I want her to feel settled and I understand this will take some time and getting used too, I just wanted to check we were doing the right thing! X
  5. She sleeps downstairs as we don’t allow her upstairs. She has a sofa full of blankets and cushions, a duvet and an orthopaedic dog bed with blankets and soft toys so comfort isn’t the problem!
  6. Hello all, After a few months of meets, walks and excitement we finally brought home Peaches on Saturday 15th February! She had a great first day with us, sniffing around the house, going for a walk or two and cuddling up on the sofa in the evening. We let her go at her own pace and didn’t pester her for attention, letting her choose to spend time with us if she wanted too, that night we went to bed and she slept silently until we got her up on the Sunday morning. Sunday was another great day, she ate her food well, had regular toileting, went for 3 walks and we snuggled on the sofa in
