  1. Hello everyone! I have never used this site before, but am looking for some advice! Two weeks ago I brought home my very first retired racer, and he's amazing. I know there is definitely an adjustment period that can last much longer than these 2 weeks, but as a first time greyhound (and dog in general) owner I just want to make sure my new bud is doing ok. As the title of this post states, he is pretty much scared of everything (I'm assuming because everything is new to him?). Other than myself, he is terrified of nearly everyone and tries to run and/or hides behind me, whines/yelps in
  2. Hi one and all. We are adopting today. Our boy has been with us two weeks and at the beginning he was doing great on walks and now he refuses to leave the house. We have tried our three exits. He is extremely fearful. We have a court yard which is adjacent to the road so he can hear the noises of the cars etc but on walk he put the breaks on immediately. I am trying distractions, food reward if he makes one step....anything else I should try? I have read people have had the same issues but I don't know if they cracked it in the end. We will not be returning him but at the same time
  3. Hello. My wife and I recently adopted a 2 year old male greyhound about 6 weeks ago. Overall he has been settling in really great and seems comfortable and at ease most of the time. However, I am seeking advice whether there's anything we can be doing to help him not be so fearful or timid when meeting new people, particularly while in our home. Overall he is inherently shy and typically won't let strangers pet him. Even if he's met someone before it doesn't seem to matter. However, I wouldn't describe him as excessively fearful either - just guarded. He'll approach and sniff, but from a dista
  4. Hello everyone - In desperate need of help with new Grey, Mollie She came to us from a shelter about eight weeks ago. I've owned dogs by whole life, but not Greys. We noticed in the shelter she was standoffish and would not come to us but thought she would settle in. She was okay in the house but very wary of the new situation, understandably. I would take her out for little walks but she was always reluctant re-entering the house. She was with us about 24 hours before she slipped her lead and ran off into the fields. She was loose for nearly four weeks in cold/wet conditions. We recei
  5. Hi Everyone, This is my first post here, I'm hoping to find some good conversation as a first-time greyhound adopter. Our newly adopted greyhound is 2 Years old. We assume that he didn't qualify as a racer, he is registered as a racer but does not have a racing record. He has a low prey drive and was turned over to the rescue group at a young age. We adopted him 3 months ago. 2 Weeks ago he bit our dog-sitter, and we have since employed a trainer to help us modify his behavior. Marco has a bit of a bite history. When we adopted him, we were told that he had bitten a young child at
