  1. I used to take an air horn and beep a few times to warn animals in the yard before letting my greys out. It seemed to help. Otherwise, it was survival of the fittest.
  2. Prey drive can't really be trained out. You aren't going to train out thousands of years of breeding. My Lulu (who was rescued from a coyote hunter when she was only a few months old and therefore never raced so never cultivated prey drive) caught and killed a rabbit with a muzzle with a stool guard--she literally caught it with her paws and beat it to death with her muzzle. She was fine with cats in the house (and even shared her bed with them) and actually loved them. Chase, my amazing Grade AA racer who was also great with cats in the house, caught a bird mid-air in the backyard and killed
  3. I've raised many puppies over my lifetime and I'll say this: a Greyhound puppy was the HARDEST (and shouting never helps anything). Sounds like your puppy may be trying to exert dominance. I use short sounds like "eh!" to get a dog to break focus of the negative things they are doing. Once they look at me (since it's an abrupt sound, it usually works), I praise them for focusing. All dogs and puppies in my house must sit (or at least back off and stay, in the case of Greys who can't sit) as I sit food dishes down. I use the "eh!" sound to stop them if they try to move before I give them the "o
  4. Mine is included in our Paw Plan. It's not insurance, but it covers all shots, one dental per year, wellness checks, CBC, spay/neuter, and at least a 20% discount on any other services. It's $65 a month, which is less than what one dental costs. ETA: I paid $1300 for Chase 10 years ago... he ended up needing seven extractions.
  5. I'm just itching to find out who our next pupper will be. It's looking like it'll be a brindle boy as the group mostly has them with one black boy. Since everything looks good on a black houndie, I'd love to see your BRINDLE photos with collars to see what I might like. My red fawn, Chase, was perfect in royal blue and my blue fawn, Lulu, was amazing in lilac. Red is currently what my Dobie girl wears.
  6. It's been about five years since I've had a Greyhound and I know dog food changes. We currently have a Doberman and she's on ProPlan Large Breed Sensitive Stomach. It's good to know I have a chance of this working with the incoming Greyhound.
  7. I have never heard of this! I hope it'll help my Doberman, too!
  8. OMG. I can't believe this thread is still going 10ish years later. You all crack me up.
  9. This is Lulu loving on my oldest just before she went to the Rainbow Bridge. She LOVED the tiny furless puppy. LOVED. And my oldest would stop crying if put next to her. I really wish Lulu had been able to be around her longer. My oldest as a newborn (she was bawling until I put her next to Lulu): And our pregnancy announcement:
  10. Originally from Michigan (where our two original Greyhounds were adopted from). We now live in western Washington state.
