Bringing Your Greyhound Racer Home
When you bring your Greyhound racer home there is a 2-3 week adjustment period. Things that will be new to your new pet is stairs other pets, glass doors and new sights like themselves in mirrors and noises like the Television. Your Greyhound racer will probably be a bit nervous at first and may pant, whine and pace but be patient this will pass. Let your Greyhound explore it’s surroundings and get accustomed to it’s new home. Put tape on any glass doors so that they don’t bump into it, show your Greyhound the door by gently pressing it’s nose against it and pat it with your hand to show that it is solid.
Introduce other pets to your Greyhound racer slowly, have the pets in different rooms initially so they can get used to each other’s smells. You can slowly introduce them at intervals making sure they have a quick exit if they need it. The Greyhound will know that he is Johnny Come Lately and will respect the other pet’s territory but give the pets the time and space they need to get used to each other. It may take a little time but they will adjust.
Keep trash in a container with a secure lid or behind a closed cabinet door. Food on a table that is at nose level can be very tempting until you’ve trained your Greyhound racer not to steal or beg, it is a good idea not to leave food where they can get at it. When leaving, open your blinds or curtains so your Greyhound can see you go otherwise the curtains or blinds may be in shreds when you get back. Stairs can also be a challenge for many racers.
