Hounds Education Classes

Greyhounds Only offers two classes for families with infants and small children.

Child and Family Seminar

Greyhounds Only, Inc. is proud to present this comprehensive seminar for families with children under sixteen. Before proceeding to hound selection, families attend a seminar in the comfort of a trainer's home. Interactive discussions will include proper interaction between children and dogs, safety protocols, Greyhound-specific needs, and much more. A printed outline and hand-outs are provided, including fun posters to remind children of what is "right" and what is "wrong".

Infant Seminar

This seminar is designed to help families with Greyhounds plan and prepare for the arrival of an infant. After reviewing the statistics involving hounds that are returned to GO, we found that 70% of the returned Greyhounds are due to negative baby/toddler/children interaction. We feel that preparing our new adoptive families, as well as existing GO families, expecting a baby and their dog for the blessed event will give them tools and realistic goals to keep the entire family intact.
