Social Hound

The first steps when bringing a new dog home are to build a secure and strong attachment and integrate them slowly into their new surroundings. Any fear or anxiety related behaviour while the dog settles in is completely normal and a degree of stress is to be expected. Almost all hounds have lived rurally in kennel environment for their whole life and there will be so many ‘firsts’ they’ll need guiding through.   

Initially, just being present and available to guide your greyhound is invaluable as they navigate this strange new world, however it takes more than that to build a rock-solid friendship.
