Racing Greyhound Ownership

Owning a greyhound is a hugely rewarding experience. 

There are thousands of owners across our sport, many of whom have been involved for generations. 

It is also something that draws newcomers to the sport each year, whether as part of a syndicate of friends, a family or as an indvidual.

Being part of this exciting sport may cost less than you think, and benefits include free admission to the stadium, discounts, free racecards and much more.

Why not become involved for the love of the sport and the love of the dogs?

Retired Greyhound Homing

Greyhounds make wonderful pets, and generally retire between three and five years of age, so have many years ahead of them. 

Friendly, gentle and loyal, they quickly adapt to family life, getting on well with children, the elderly and other pets. 

They only need two short walks a day and will happily spend the rest of their time dozing by your side.

Contact us at to find out more about this hugely rewarding experience.
