As dog people, we have great respect and admiration for the verve and athletic ability of greyhounds.

Their wellbeing, however, is most important of all.

We take pride in how we care for greyhounds. They are treated just like any other athlete and, as detailed below, require a high level of day-to-day care.

24/7 Care

Like any animal, greyhounds need to be cared for 7 days a week all year round. There are no days off – even during the holiday period.

High Quality Feed and Nutrition

Greyhounds are provided with high quality feed. As athletes, they need to be provided with a healthy, well balanced diet. Dietary needs may differ between greyhounds, therefore meals are tailored to their individual needs.

Daily Exercise

Generally, greyhounds will have their own tailored training regime to suit their fitness level and requirements. Once they finish their exercise they are checked over for any signs of soreness. Many trainers also monitor their heart rate and temperatures.

Clean Kennels

Kennels are cleaned each day to ensure a comfortable living space for greyhounds.

General Wellbeing

Many trainers provide their greyhounds with therapeutic treatments such as massages or massage mats. Greyhounds also often enjoy foot and hydrobaths. Those that live close to the ocean, sometimes take a trip down to the beach for a walk through the water.
