I really enjoyed this book, and thought it was a good source of basic information regarding adopting a greyhound. It covered a lot of things I hadn't thought of. My only complaint is that it was too short, and didn't offer enough depth in some of the topics,it left you wanting to know more! But very worth while before you get your greyhound.

4.0 out of 5 stars good solid guidance 10 Oct 2004
Format:Hardcover
I was recommended to buy this book by Greyhound Rescue West of England, and have found it a useful introduction. It's a fairly thin book and both my husband and I read it in an hour or so.
The writing style is not polished, and the writer is sometimes a little didactic (do this, don't do that, you'll need one of these).
But if like us you are new to greyhounds, it provides a really useful grounding. I would certainly recommend it to other new greyhound owners and prospective owners, though those with more experience will probably find little new here.

5.0 out of 5 stars pet owners guide to greyhounds 9 Sep 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found this book really usefull and was amazed at the breeds history.
It tells you the usefull stuff like all greyhounds steal food from the kitchen sideboard. (so put the butter back straight away or else)!! It also tells you that alot of grey hounds can't sit down due the their musculer build.

i would recomend this to any one who wants to adopt an ex-racer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for everyone wishing to adopt a Greyhound 15 Oct 2001
Format:Hardcover
Unlike many similar titles this book comprehensively covers aspects of owning a greyhound including ex-racers who have been raced in Australia, USA or Spain as well as the UK. If I had my way this would be mandatory reading for every prospective owner of ex-racers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A useful and informative book. 11 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
An excellent and useful book for greyhound owners. Particulary nice for British owners, as it is one of the few books on this subject written in this country. Full of many helpful tips and advice, even for experienced owners. Also has lots of excellent colour pictures of greyhounds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic information 13 Nov 2013
By Leonore
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a solid book for people new to greyhounds. It's like an overview, but if you want something more detailed about training, maintenance, behaviourial or veterinary issues you would probably look elsewhere. Great starter book though and would recommend for families, especially with youngsters, to get an understanding of the breed before they adopt one.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very easy to read and lots of general advice.
Very helpful when thinking of buying a greyhound for the first time.
Best followed up by 'Retired Greyhounds: A guide to Care and Understanding' by Carol Baby if not buying a puppy.
