In leaps and hounds – helping greyhounds to be great with Susan McKeon

July 26, 2017

If you’re considering adopting a greyhound, wondered what it’s really like to live with a greyhound, or already have a greyhound (or two) in your life – this is the talk for you!

 

The Benyfit Natural Marquee will host a lineup of expert speakers throughout the day on everything from behaviour to scentwork, nutrition to basic training. It’s a fantastic opportunity to tap into a wealth of knowledge all in one day - and all at no extra cost! Find out what Susan will be chatting about below;

 

Join Susan McKeon with her talk - In leaps and hounds – helping greyhounds to be great

 

It’s estimated that between 9,000 – 11,000 greyhounds retire from racing each year in the UK.  After a life that has revolved around the race-track, once they retire greyhounds start their transition from canine athlete to companion animal.

 

Susan will be presenting a talk which provides an insight into helping greyhounds adjust to life post-racing and helping them learn how to be a companion animal. 

 

She will also dispel many of the myths surrounding greyhounds, and prove they are more than the ‘40mph couch potato’! The talk will also explore some of the medical idiosyncrasies that all greyhound owners should be aware of, common behaviour issues, and the quirkier side of sharing life with a retired racing greyhound.
