Breed Review: Greyhound (19 Pics)

#10 Greyhounds are not often seen on the training grounds, and therefore have a reputation for being difficult to educate lazy people.

However, in reality, everything is not so simple. Like any dogs, initially "sharpened" for hunting, English greyhounds cannot execute commands with the same automatism with which service breeds do. But the "English" love to be creative and very artistic, which gives them an advantage when performing in the ring.

#11 Unlike the aforementioned service breeds, it is better not to rush to train English greyhounds.

Have patience and endurance, let the puppy grow up. At a young age, Greyhounds are fantastically uncontrollable, so trying to harness the irrepressible energy of a three-month-old baby is to spoil the mood for yourself and your pet. Better practice in the ability to calmly relate to dog pranks, which the puppy will generate by a pack per hour.

#12 Usually dog handlers recommend working with the dog no earlier than the year is old, but do not take such advice literally.

Gray is obliged to do something by this age. In particular, the greyhound must respond to the nickname, understand the prohibitions, and also be socialized.

Build up Greyhound training with an eye on the psychotype of the breed. English greyhounds are not those dogs that are eager to work for food: the offered treat will be swallowed and made "adios" with a paw. So the innate passion of the breed remains the main incentive to practice. Try to "grab" the pet's attention in the first lesson and not let go in the next. Remember, as soon as a Greyhound gets bored, he will drop out. It is better to choose a moderately patronizing style of communication during training: Greyhounds are not dominant, and it is pointless to "press" them. Better show your pet how happy you are to work together - the dog will appreciate it.
