Greyhound Breed Maintenance
If Greyhounds become bored, they can become destructive. They also still possess a very strong instinct to hunt, and will definitely chase any small animals that can be considered as prey. Because of this, a Greyhound will need to be kept in a home that has a good fence. They should be kept on leash at all times during walks for the same reason. Because these dogs are so tall, getting raised bowls for food can be a good idea. You must also be cautious so that your Greyhound does not get overweight, as they are prone to it. They should get fed twice a day. Although their coat is short, they are still known to shed a lot and will need to be brushed every day. Hound mitts or rubber curry brushes are their favorite tools for grooming. These dogs can also have poor dental health, and will need regular teeth brushing. Unless they wear down on their own, the nails should be trimmed one or two times every month.
