Greyhound Info

Below are a series of Fact Sheets covering a variety of topics that you might find interesting and relevant – some are aimed at those thinking of adopting a greyhound, and others answer a variety of common health and behaviour questions that the staff at GAP have been regularly asked over the years.

We are always adding to our list of fact sheets, so check back often, and if you have any ideas for topics that you think might be of assistance to other greyhound owners, please let the GAP staff know (insert gap email here).
