  1. My grey recently started tucking her tail and not coming for her treat when I wipe her down after being outside. Tonight she snapped at me and was yelping when I would come towards her to dry her off. Once i put the towel on top of her she started yelping like she was hurt even though i wasn’t touching her. She has never done this before. We have dried her off many a times with a towel after the beach or the pool and today she wasn’t even super wet and acted like something was wrong. Now any time I walk by her she tucks her tail and runs into the other room. Any advise on why this may be happe
  2. I'm posting a lot here as my hound is so new and I'm a first timer! Jack will walk beautifully on the lead a lot of the time, which is great. He's most comfortable in the morning and likes to go to the park and is as good as gold next to me. However, sometimes when we're out walking he pulls really hard. At first I thought I needed to train it out of him, and I was trying the 'stand still and make them come back to you' trick. However, I've realised over the last few days that he's not pulling because he's confident and wants to sniff things, he's pulling because he's scared and he wants
  3. 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.
  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
  5. Hi everybody! I begin to foster with intent to adopt my sweet girl Rhea just shy of a month ago. She was great with other dogs - not playful, but loved to meet new dogs on our walks. We live in a major city so we run into dogs of all breeds, shapes, sizes, and temperaments. Rhea never reacted to other dogs' barking or aggression before and simply paid no mind to leash reactive dogs we encountered. I always keep a safe distance if I feel any other dogs may not be safe or may be too excitable. However - several days ago, Rhea greeted an Irish Wolfound in the entrance hall of our buil
  6. Hi all, I'm looking for some advice from anyone who has a grey that behaves like ours does please! Apologies it might be a long post! Poppy is 3, had her since 18 months, 'retired' but never raced. She's perfectly normal at home, gets more playful than our previous two greys, possibly down to being in kennels for less time and younger. Where the difference is is when out for a walk. She will be walking along and then suddenly freeze, refuse to go any further until we turn around. She will also do this at points on the road where she wants to cross or at junctions. Recently she's even done
  7. Hello, We have had our grey for about a week now. She has been great! She seemed like she wasn't afraid of anything, which was a relief because we live in the city. She heard garbage trucks, buses, horn honking, horse and carriages, people on segways, trains, boats, etc and did not even flinch. Yesterday afternoon on our way back from our walk, she heard a metal soda can rolling down the street was was terrified. She pulled me to the apartment and even nudged the door open herself. She had her tail between her legs and her ears back. We have walked her five times since then and she is spookin
  8. On saturday, I had to take my boy on leash to go potty because my husband was fixing the gate to the fenced yard. Well, he is a bit on the timid side, a gust of wind came and blew the blue tarp a little bit. This was enough to set him off, he got scared and ended up going under a fence board that was leaning against the house, it fell on him which made the situation even worse. His Martingale collar got twisted in the struggle and he now tends to cough/choking whenever he eats or takes a drink. Should I take him in to the vet to get this checked out or am I just being a worried mom? Thank
  9. Izzy is absolutely terrified of the ceiling fan. I have tried turning it on slow and still she absolutely freaks, to the point I am afraid she is going to hurt herself. I do not have central air, only window air and the ceiling fan is a necessity once the humidity starts. Any one have any suggestions on how to get her over this fear? I can't just turn it on and leave it on because she literally about goes through the window, she slams herself against things, she about hyperventilates, if the fan is already on when she comes to the room she refuses to go in the room and runs and hides. I just
  10. Hi everyone: We got our new adopted hound, Oz, last Saturday. We're so happy to have him, but we've run into some transition hurdles. We've read a number of the posts here (all of which are helpful!) and the recommended greyhound adoption books. We just want to make sure that anything we're experiencing isn't out of the ordinary, as it seems to be getting tougher and tougher with a few issues (particularly housetraining, walking, and sleeping). I'll outline them here, but more than anything, we're just looking for some guidance and support! Our Home: City, 3rd floor apartment, 1 cat,
