Thank you for an excellent and informative presentation Susan. I have been a lover of sighthounds for several years and our lovely lurcher came to live with us from a rescue centre about 5 years ago. He has his challenges but is also a wonderful dog and has inspired me to learn as much as possible to give him the best possible life. This is the first time I have had the pleasure of watching a sighthound-specific presentation and it has been very helpful. Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge on these special animals.Read Less

This webinar was an excellent over view of sighthounds and their needs, particularly when considering rescue or retired track Greyhounds. I enjoyed the content but would have liked some more detail about how some of the training was put together. That said, there were excellent links provided for further skill and understanding building around the training topics. Everyone involved with sighthounds should know this stuffRead Less
