WANTED – Foster Homes

WANTED Foster Homes

NORTHWEST CANADIAN GREYHOUND LEAGUE

Greyhounds that come straight off the track need to learn how to behave in a house. They need to learn all about things like; linoleum, carpet, stairs, cats, little dogs, windows, mirrors and much more. Foster families take a Greyhound into their home and spend time teaching it how to be a wonderful house dog. They then have to be strong of heart and give the Greyhound up when it’s ready for adoption. Failing at fostering simply means falling in love with your foster and wanting to keep it. If you fail too often you won’t have room to foster anymore Greyhounds and that is what we consider a loss, but a happy loss!

Greyhound Belly Bands – Our Training Tool for Male Markers!

Greyhound Belly Bands – Our Training Tool for Male Markers!

Do you own or are you fostering a male Greyhound that likes to mark everything in sight? We have just the right training tool for you and they are being custom made by one of NCGL’s volunteers. Five Dollars ($5.00) from each sale will be donated to NCGL.

Belly Bands have proven over and over that marking ends promptly after a few wearing’s. How long to have your dog wear a belly band and when to stop using? That is a personal decision, but if the dog/foster stays dry overnight while wearing one, use is usually discontinued.

For further information or to order, contact Jean at weepeebellybands@gmail.com
