  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. Hello! My boyfriend and I just adopted a year old greyhound. She came straight from the owner - he raises them to race cross country and said she and her sister didn't have the drive and desire to race. We picked up her last night and it is now almost 11am and she has yet to pee or poop. I think she may have gone a little bit in the kennel but not enough to really even be noticeable. I took her for a walk with my boyfriend's dog and she goes out when his dog goes out. I'm hoping it will help her to learn the routine by following the other dog. She's very shy and somewhat nervous.
  4. Hi there! I have been dying to adopt a greyhound since I saw a whole pack of them available at a county fair event when I was probably 10 years old. I am finally at a point in my life and in a house where I could be a good home for one. I have a mostly paved or decked back yard area, and I would like to avoid it starting to smell of dog urine/poop when I've got the hound out there. Obviously it won't be the primary potty spot but I want to set up an area in my 'side yard' that will be the go to area. The side yard is about 2 1/2-3 ft wide and 20 ft long, just a strip of wood-chipped
  5. We brought home a beautiful 3.5 year-old girl yesterday. We are technically fostering her until her leg has healed (she will likely need surgery), at which point we can officially adopt. She was designated as cat-friendly, and that seems to be accurate so far. She's the only dog in the house, and we have just the one cat who has been cautious but calm so far. Our new girl, Nio (we haven't picked a real name yet) completely ignored the cat at first. Now she will look at her occasionally, but her attention is broken very easily. Based on what I've heard, that's pretty much the best case scenario
  6. Hello, We've had our 4 year old girl, Lily, for 6 months now. For the first four months she didn't have one accident inside the house. Two months ago, my mother in law brought her dog over who peed on the rug, for the following week, Lily peed every night (even though we were still taking her out on a regular basis) in that same spot that the other dog had peed. I finally covered the spot with furniture and it stopped. Now for the past two weeks, she's been peeing intermittently in various places -- it doesn't seem there's any reason for it, and I've yet to catch her in the act. I'm home
  7. Hi all! We are moving to a house with a yard in a few weeks. A big change for Miss Bella who is used to walks. We'll still take her on walks to give her more exercise and stimulation, but I'd love to train her to do her business in one area so that I can walk around barefoot and not have to worry about stepping in poo. Or have brown spots on the grass. Has anyone sucessfully done this? Note that we do not have a very large yard and there's not really a good option, at least at the moment, to put a specific new surface anywhere just for her. Thanks for any and all suggestions! Sara
  8. This is me and my husbands first greyhound! We have only had her for 3 days! We love her but we are new to this and need some advice. We are trying to get her on a potty schedule that is the same everyday and works around our work hours. I work 12-9pm so I usually taker her out first thing in the mornig (around 7:00). Then feed her at 8:00. Then take her out again around 8:30/8:45. Then I do what I need to do before leaving for the day. My husbands schedule is not as set, he is currently looking for a job and is working a part time one now. He is basically gone from 8:00-4:00ish...varies on th
