Your first galgo

Greyhounds love company and therefore make ideal companions.

They tend to be rather lazy and are generally more than happy to curl up somewhere cosy at home. In common with other dogs, they do not like to be on their own.

Greyhounds run very fast and have excellent eyesight, so it’s advisable always to have them on a lead when you’re out walking them.

The greyhound shopping list

A few things to keep in mind:

  • A wide strap with a strong hook
  • A special greyhound collar bearing an identification plate
  • A recipient for food and another for water
  • A rubber brush for hair
  • A bed: a small quilt is ideal as greyhounds like to make a nest
  • A coat for use in cold or rainy weather.


We hope that the content of this section will explode a few of the myths about greyhounds as pets and that you may consider offering one of our greyhounds a permanent home. Please feel free to call in at our centre if you have any doubts and are trying to make up your mind.
