Episode 36: The Potty Episode––House Training Your Greyhound

Get the steps you can take to house train your greyhound.

Your new greyhound may not understand that peeing and pooping is to be done outside, and not indoors. Or maybe your greyhound may need you to hit the “reset” button after having been in your home for a period of time. In this episode, we’ll take you through some proven training techniques designed to help you help your greyhound to learn what’s acceptable.



Before attempting to train your greyhound to potty only outside, take your dog to the veterinarian. He or she may have a medical condition or it may be a sign of getting older. Once an underlying medical condition is ruled out, start the training regimen.

  • Your greyhound’s inappropriate pottying may be due to separation anxiety. Listen to this About Greyhounds episode to help your dog overcome separation anxiety.
  • Your greyhound’s crate should measure about About 36” high and 42” long, which is about 91 cm high and 107cm long.
  • Watch the Power Walk video, starring our own Al Cavallo and greyhound visitor, Oreon!
  • Make a difference for greyhounds when you help Greyhound Friends of New Jersey with your donation.
