Episode 11: Recorded February 20, 2021
"You see these discussions all the time on Greyhound groups. 'What's the best ______ for my Greyhound?'"John Parker, host of Greyhound Nation
Use the right tool for the job. This mantra applies to Greyhound ownership as much as it applies to car maintenance. New Greyhound owners often have questions about what "Greyhound gear" they need to care for and manage their new companion:
"What's the difference between a buckle collar and Martingale collar?"
"My Greyhound pulls on walks. Should I invest in a harness?"
"Is this crate too small for my Greyhound?"
In this episode, host John Parker and producer Michael Burns tackle these questions and more in the first ever gear show. Topics of interest to both new and veteran Greyhound owners alike include:
Select the right collar and leashSizing a crate or exercise penMonitoring your Greyhound with security cameras and GPS collars
