  1. I adopted a greyhound about 3 months ago, and we've slowly been introducing her to our friends/family. She did fantastic meeting people for about 6 weeks, and then all of a sudden, she started getting really nervous, showing her teeth, and even snapping at people. We're not sure what caused this regression, but now she won't let anyone touch her except me and my partner. I'm going out of town in a couple weeks, and we've been trying to have our pet sitter over a lot, so she can get used to him before I'm gone. He was one of the first people she met when we first adopted her, and she did great.
  2. We have a harness for her (given to us by the foster family), but it seems like it might be too tight! Do you have any recommendations on a good harness we can buy?
  3. Thanks so much to both of you for your expertise!! The article was a great read, and it's reassuring to hear that carrying her won't further traumatize her. In the past day, we started trying to train with a longer leash, allowing her to willingly come be with us outside (which is rewarded), or stay inside where she's comfortable. We are fully expecting that it's going to be a long process, but it's going great so far! Any other suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated!!
  4. Hello! I am a new greyhound owner; we just adopted a retired racing hound about a month ago. I'm having a lot of trouble taking her out to go potty. We lived in a large apartment complex in Denver for the first two weeks, and she absolutely despised walking through the halls and going in the elevator. She hated going so much that my partner had to carry her to the dog park every day. We just moved into a townhouse, so the grass is about 10ft away, but she is still so hesitant to leave the house. She freezes right at the doorway and refuses to go further. So, again, we carry her 10ft over
