  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. 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

  4. I've recently adopted George, a 3 year old from the racing industry. While he was never professionally raced himself, he was raised in the environment. We've had George a week so far, and the first 3 days he was absolutely fine to leave our apartment and go on a walk. Once he started to settle in to our apartment though he began to refuse to go outside. Currently we will physically have to lift him out of bed, from there he will happily exit out apartment, walk down the hallway and enter the elevator, getting to the ground floor is where he will entirely freeze up. This starts in the e
  5. How many Greytalk members are joining or leading a Great Global Greyhound Walk this year? http://www.greatglobalgreyhoundwalk.co.uk I see Donna is organising one in Montreal, anybody else involved in one?
  6. Two questions - How cold is too cold to take a greyhound out on a walk? If they don't go for walks, do they burn their energy by running around the yard or house? I know that "cold" can be a relative term ... We've had Foley for just a week and a half now. Initially, we walked him three times a day, but since the cold hit the Mid-Atlantic (weather in the 20's, feels like in the single digits) he will make it down to the driveway and then freeze. We put two coats on him (Voyagers K9 tummy warmer and winter coat) and applied wax to his paws this last time. He has yet to really run around our
  7. I see a number of threads about leashed behavior, walking the dog, behavior issues, exercise needs etc. So many of these things and more, come together and are addressed in walking your dog on the leash. It seems terribly simplistic to say, but it is true (and it is that simple). At the risk of telling you all what you already know in one form or another: Many years ago, while involved with shepherd dogs, we used to really push the importance of walking your dog. Shepherd breeds, and most breeds to some extent, need physical and mental stimulation regularly or there will be serious con
  8. Hi! I'm having a bit of trouble with my 1st foster. He is great and easy in so many aspects! I really feel that he is already so well behaved, and he has such a great attitude. It's mostly the whole taking him out to potty thing. We go out in the morning at 7. I feed him at 7:30. We go out again at 8:30/9. Then again around 1. I feed him around 4:30/5. We go out again around 6:30. and then he refused to go out again after 8. I want to do one last potty break before bed, but he will not leave his dog bed for anything (treats, coaxing, leash, etc). If he doesn't out before bed, h
  9. We are pondering getting a 2nd grey, and I'm wondering how people handle the walks. We do have a fenced yard, but our current girl, Zoe, does not like to poop in her own yard (of course!), so she gets two good walks a day (20-40 minutes each). I usually do the walking by myself - I'm wondering what the options are and how people handle a 2nd dog on a walk. I don't really have time to walk them separately, particularly in the morning. Has anyone tried something like this leash. Does it work? Would we need the larger diameter rope? (7/16" vs 5/16")? Other suggestions? Other sugge
