  1. Hey everyone, I’ve searched the internet high and low reading up on this and not found much solid info. So I wanted to ask what your experiences were with greyhound food protein percentages?? A lot of UK/EU based organisations recommend feeding -20% protein for retired racers living a fairly sedentary life. Ive noticed the school of thinking in the US is not the same. Our grey, Rylee was very anxious and on edge the first few weeks he was with us, he then started to calm down and would be a lot more forthcoming doing things he was previously super afraid of (like taking the stairs)
  2. Hello you guys I once more need your honest opinion and maybe someone experienced this type of problem with their Greyhound as well Faye has been with us for a month now (whew, time really flies) and overall she´s a wonderful and easygoing girl, very calm and still anixous or scared at times but nothing like in the beginning - it´s already so much better and I can see her change everyday. She sleeps through the night and also got a hang of our daily routine or rather what´s left of it because of the pandemic She lies or sleeps in her crate all day...and this is where the not so fun par
  3. Hi Greytalk, We recently adopted a previously homed greyhound who has for several years ridden exclusively in an SUV. Apparently she looked forward to her roadtrips and was not in the least bit nervous in the previous owner's RAV 4. When we adopted her a couple of months ago and tried to put her in my Camry for the first time, she became very anxious, and has remained that way on subsequent rides to the vet, etc. She trembles all over, won't get up on the backseat and insists on standing on the floor in the backseat, which is very unsafe. She really doesn't want to get into the
  4. Hello everyone, I brought my 1yr old greyhound boy Monte home 3 weeks ago yesterday. He has adapted pretty well to apartment life, although he's still quite aloof. But outside is a separate story. He is very slow on walks, freezes often and will not go to the bathroom on the leash. As a result, I have had to take him to the dog park where he can go off leash every time we go out. He also has crazy control over his bladder - I've taken him out on the leash for 2.5 hours and he will hold it until I cave and take him to the park. Any tips?
  5. We’ve had our lovely Fred now for nearly 5 months. He’s a rescue ex racer and he’s adjusted super well to his new surroundings. When first being left on his own, we watched him on the camera and he would pace and look for us. We did notice he’d scratched the door a tad but he soon grew out of that. Often we will look on the camera and he’s snoozing away. At the longest, he’s probably left for 4 hours - and that’s when me and my partner are both out at work. I’m a freelancer, so I am lucky to work from home, or only be gone for around 4 hours. During the work day, he is given plenty o
  6. Needing some advice. Got my greyhound five days ago, and he is overall doing very well. However, when we leave him in his crate, he always pees (even if we are gone for a short amount of time). He never pees/poops in the house, and he doesn’t pee in the crate if we are home. This leads me to think that he has separation anxiety. We tried giving him a kong with peanut butter to occupy him when we left, but he never touched it. I just don’t want his peeing in the crate to become a habit. Any ideas on how to help?
  7. Hello, Were new and have just rehomed a 4.5 year old black and white Boy called Senner. Hes recently retired. Weve brought him into a 4 bed detached home with a small to medium garden. No other pets or kids, just me and my partner. We knew he was a bit shy when we first adopted him but were just hoping for some advice. He has taken to his bed in the kitchen immediately, this is his safe space, and its very difficult to get him away from there. He doesnt seem to recognise his name, making any training difficult. When we first got him 2 weeks ago you could put his lead on and this would get
  8. I'm hoping to hear from some owners who've managed/treated/"beat" separation anxiety and can give us some perspective. I've read a lot about it, but have not really had first hand experience until this foster dog. I'd like to get my head wrapped around it a bit better, so we can do a better job at letting our adoption group and potential adopters know what this pup will likely need. We've had this 5yo hound for about a month now, he was surrendered by his owner (she'd had him for about a year) because he had developed separation anxiety - which manifested as howling/crying and chewing the
  9. Hi Everyone! I've had my greyhound for about 3.5years now. Within the past 6 months I've noticed some behavioral changes that have me worried. First off, he is way more nervous on our hardwood floors. He gets very weird about walking around corners and furniture and has stopped jumping on the couch/bed like he used to. He's stopped running on areas that are bumpy as if he's worried about his footing. And lastly he's started acting weird at night when there are shadows, he gets freaked out about shadows on walks and has on a couple of occasions started growling at the wall which I think was rel
  10. Hi, Im a somewhat new greyhound owner (my husband and I adopted six months ago). She was smaller than the others, even for a female and was the most calm. She had some dry skin issues but at he time I just thought she was dirty. We knew she would need time to adjust but its already been six months and Im concerned theres something going on. She is on anxiety medicine because of her separation anxiety but she still gets upset when we leave and tears up her crate and anything she can get to while in it. This week was the worst. She bent her crate, slid the bottom part out, and was wet everywhere
  11. Hi all, I feel like there are so many threads on separation anxiety already but the tricks I've read on others aren't working for us. We've been using a crate when we're away and each day it's taking her longer to settle in and sleep (we have a camera on her). Right now, we're at 2+ hrs before she settles and then it's only 30 mins of sleep before she's up and howling / clawing at crate. Here's a summary of her and what we've tried: 18-month-old female that never raced. Our first greyhound. Very timid but learning. Can do city walks without her freezing now. Tail now wags even. At
  12. I adopted a 3 year old male greyhound five days ago. First day went really well great on walks, toileting fine all was good. Second day started freezing on walks and sometimes refusing to go outside. Third day was difficult to get him to go far at all. Fourth day followed advice from the rescue centre about being firm and in control using gentle pressure on lead and we got on great all walks went well but then couldn't get him to go out last thing at night. This morning I managed eventually after his breakfast to get him to go out and then at 10.30am we went for another short walk. Since then
  13. Hi all. We recently adopted our boy about a week and a half ago. I know it's all still new, and he's never been left alone, but we're having issues. We first started to use the crate and did alone training, but he really hated it. It would be a real struggle to get him in the crate and when left for a longer period of time, he chewed on it and bent the metal. I decided to instead put up a gate outside the kitchen and keep him in there with his bed. We left him for about 10-15 minutes, and when we came back in, we found that he had chewed up the gate door, chewed on our counter top, and had jum
  14. New hound here. Toffee is 4 1/2 last raced in April. Two weeks at a foster and Hes been with us a little over a month. Weve never crated him, he sleeps at the foot of our bed. Two issues were looking for any suggestions. 1. If we leave him longer than 3-4 hours he poos in the floor. Usually by the door. We leave toys, Kong, toys and the tv on. Weve gated him in our utility room where he eats with the same outcome. He doesnt pee in the house except, again, when hes been alone and the minute we come home he pees as well as chatters and bows and generally saying how happy he is were home
  15. Help! My girlfriend and I adopted our greyhound last August. We didnt have any separation or anxiety issues until a few weeks ago when we returned from a 5 day vacation. We had a dog sitter stay in our house and he seemed normal but a few days after we returned he started having somewhat serious anxiety issues. Hes had issues at night after we go through our normal nighttime routine and are sleeping he demonstrates signs of stress mostly standing by our bed and panting. Hes also developed separation anxiety: scratching doors, accidents in the house (for the first time) etc. We took him to the
  16. 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
