Guest laura150 Posted August 26, 2013 Share Posted August 26, 2013 We adopted Ernie last week (I've been posting about his SA) and I wanted to get people's opinions on if greyhounds get sore. Since he hasn't had much exercise, I wonder if our twice daily (30 and then 45-60 minute) walks are a lot to handle in the beginning. I'm thinking of it like a runner, after the first few runs, muscles are sore and legs feel like lead. Do greyhounds feel like this going from a shelter to home environment?Also, the first few days Ernie took the stairs up and down to our apartment like a champ. Now, not so much. He refuses to go down them. My husband had to carry him downstairs this morning! Any chance he's sore or do you think it's that he figured out that he doesn't like them and does not want to do them? Should I use his kibble (he doesn't really seem interested in treats of any kind) to bribe him up and down or just make him deal with them? We have an elevator in our building but he's not going to be a diva! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
