Caring - Children


Greyhounds usually love children, given the precautions one would sensibly take about not leaving a small child alone with a new dog.

This, again, is where an indoor kennel can give the dog a place of his own to go.

Because greyhounds are so good to walk on a lead, it is tempting to let a child take the family dog out - or even to hold the lead whilst you are out walking. Always remember that you have a strong, fast animal who, if he decided to dash across the road after a cat or a squirrel dropping out of a tree, would take a child with him. Until you are very sure of your dog, never allow this risk of a tragedy to occur.
