GRWE does not recommend the use of flexi/extendable leads as we do not consider them suitable for sighthounds.

GRWE does not, under any circumstances, support or condone the use of shock collars.

If your GRWE dog is experiencing any problems settling into his new home, you can check the fact sheets to see if your questions are answered here.

If not, please email the Behavioural Support Team or phone your home visitor, or our helpline, 07000 785 092 (referral service), and you will have access to free advice from an Open College Network accredited dog behaviourist used to working with rescue greyhounds and lurchers.

Remember – don’t struggle alone, we are here to help you and your dog!
