Updates:

  • Care and health information needs to reflect changes in techniques and protocols.
  • Discuss new or newly defined health issues and treatments. Change health care information to reflect changes in protocols.
  • Incorporate changes in style and approach to training techniques and behavior situations.
  • Entire new fields in dog learning and behavior have developed in the past two decades. Examples: Force-Free Training, Fear-Free Veterinary Care, Environmental Enrichment, and Dog Cognition.
  • The adoption process has changed to reflect the current state of the adoption and racing industries and the addition of other similar sight hound breeds like galgos and podencos to the adoption pipeline. Information on these breeds would be valuable to potential adopters.
  • Twenty years ago, racing greyhound puppies were rarely available. Puppies now make up a small percentage of racing greyhound adoptions. Some basic puppy information should be included along with appropriate resources for additional information.
  • The number of multi-greyhound/multi-dog households has increased significantly. Behavior and training information should provide information and assistance for those adopters.
  • Relevant statistics require updates. Links to resources are outdated or no longer exist.
  • Updates needed for useful and relevant information. Need to eliminate information that is no longer relevant.
