Episode 60: It’s the Greyhound Glossary Game Show!

Play along at home!

If someone said to you, “I have a blue bounce back with a Roman nose that had been a brood and we need to take her to the M&G, but watch out for her happy tail,” would you understand every word of that sentence? Greyhound folks have their own lingo. In this episode, join us for a “game show” where the contestant needs to define a myriad of words related to greyhounds or, in some cases, dogs in general. Be sure to play along at home!

Episode 59: Service Dogs 4 Servicemen–Greyhounds Helping Veterans & First Responders

Greyhounds helping veterans and first responders.

They told Daniel De La Rosa it couldn’t be done––training former racing greyhounds as service dogs for military veterans and first responders. “They” were other top, experienced dog trainers who clearly underestimated Daniel and the greyhounds who proved them wrong.

In this episode, renowned dog trainer Daniel De La Rosa, President and Training Director for Service Dogs 4 Servicemen, shares with us how his training program works and how he and the greyhounds and other dogs he trains are helping veterans suffering from PTSD improve their lives.

Episode 58: Eww! Why Do Some Greyhounds Eat Poop?

Gross, but important to know.

It’s true … some greyhounds and other dogs eat not only other dogs’ (or other animals’) poop, but some eat their own poop, too. Catch this episode to discover why a greyhound may be exhibiting this behavior, what poop eating may be telling you about your greyhound’s health, and potential dangers that may lurk in the turds your greyhound ingests.

Episode 57: When Greyhounds Raced Cheetahs (Seriously)

… and we have the photos to prove it.

Cheetahs are the fastest land mammal in the world at 75 MPH. Greyhounds come in a distant second as the second fastest land mammal at 45 MPH. But … what if they were to race each other on a track?

Impossible, you say? Then travel back in time with us to 1937 for the great cheetah and greyhound races at Rumford Greyhound Stadium in England. That’s when, and where, it happened. You may be surprised.

Be sure to  see photos of the cheetah and greyhound races here.
