Greyhound Ownership

Greyhound Consultation

Once you have got your new dog home, I can advise you on the best way to train your greyhound.

I start with a one-to-one greyhound consultation where I discover any training/behaviour requirements and then give advice and recommend training methods. I discuss how to manage the early stages of training and look at some of the pitfalls to be avoided. All this is followed up by a written report and training plan detailing all that I have discussed, and how to take the training forward.

This can then be followed up with one to one training, either in your own home or other location (I have access to a barn and secure fields). I offer individual one to one training or a 6 weeks greyhound training package.

Further Info

All training is fun and force free and will allow your greyhound to begin to think in the right way and will enhance your relationship with your greyhound and begin to build that bond with your greyhound for the rest of their lives.

As much as possible I recommend training is shared between ALL members of the family, including children, so everyone is treating the greyhound in the same way and using the same techniques, cues etc.

Consultations are available evenings, weekends and some week-days by arrangement.
