Conker is a fun playful greyhound with bundles of energy. He would suit an active family who are looking for a dog to go for long walks with then cuddle up on the sofa in the evening.
Conker loves toys and chasing games, chasing the squirrels and staring intensely at all the other wildlife surround him here at WARS.
Conker could live with another suitable dog but not any small furries or cats.
Conner needs a home who wont leave him for long periods of time. Give him lots of affection and attention as he is quite needy.
If he were to go to a home with a child they must be 16+ as fast movements and loud noises make Conker uncomfortable. Conker would want a home who has the right amount of adventure he does. Greyhounds dont walk for miles and miles. They like medium length walks and a run off the lead if the environment suits it then they would happily sleep on the sofa for the next couple of hours.
Conker and all the greyhounds will need an owner who understands that dogs like these are not house trained and will need some learning with guidance by WARS.
Little Conker here needs to be in a rural home as he really doesn’t cope walking past traffic. Sometimes its quite common in sighthounds to become frustrated with fast moving objects including cars.
Conker is a greyhound that has previously been raced. Greyhounds themselves tend to be quiet and calm, enjoying the creature comforts of home mixed with a few walks here and there. Conker is no different. He like most greyhounds is rather sensitive and docile so will need to be trained with a calm and light hand with plenty of praise over vocal correction.
He, like many greyhounds have a strong prey drive so it’s important that this is channeled in the right way. This can be through playing chasing games with toys and having fluffy toys that replicate what they would usually chase. Instead of trying to stop them chasing wildlife, you should facilitate that need to chase and grab in a suitable way, using toys.
Using toys like this can help with this https://www.amazon.co.uk/ANG-Braided-Outdoor-Interective-Training/dp/B0171F11BS?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_1
This is also a good toy as if replicates what greyhounds would usually be chasing. It is important to have two of these as you should never take away a toy from a dog but rather exchange is for something with equal or higher value. This prevents guarding behaviours that could arise which is defined as "the anxiety/fear of something deemed valuable to be taken away". https://tinyurl.com/y2evd3zn
Also wearing a muzzle out in public is a very responsible decision when out in public as they are used to it and to protect wildlife and small fluffy dogs.
