The Gentle Greyhound

Saturday, October 7, 2017
posted by Jim Murphy

This weekend is Greyhound weekend here in Rehoboth and Dewey Beaches. The purpose is to introduce people to this wonderful animal and to encourage fostering and adoption.

Greyhounds are nonaggressive dogs and they tend to freeze if the are challenged or attacked. Because they are so docile, they have to be trained with a very gentile hand and much more praise then correction. Greyhounds are docile animals and they need to be treated gently at all times. They have absolutely no fighting instinct in them whatsoever. Because of these traits, they don’t make good watchdogs. If you treat a greyhound harshly, you can cause psychological harm. Gentle consistency and constant praise and treats are all you need to train a greyhound. They are independent but pick up on tasks fairly quickly. Greyhounds are naturally well behaved making training ¬†quite easy even if you’re a first time dog owner. Greyhounds are often compared to cats. They are quiet, well mannered regal and independent.

Maybe it’s in your heart to adopt a beautiful greyhound. If you’re in the Rehoboth Beach area, come out and see some of these beautiful animals.

Remember, your pets count!
