Foster Homes Needed!

 Foster Homes Needed!

NORTHWEST CANADIAN GREYHOUND LEAGUE

We are DESPERATE for foster homes! We can only bring in Greyhounds based on the number of foster homes available. Please help us help the dogs!

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! Usually, the fostering period only lasts 1-2 weeks

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 wearings. 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

BC Monthly Greyhound Gathering

Date: Saturday, January 17th, 2019

Time: 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Place: Templeton Field (near Vancouver Airport in Richmond)

Direction: Take Grant McConachie Way toward the airport, turn left at Templeton Street, turn left again on Miller Road, first left for parking, fenced field is across the street.

The field is completely fenced and safe for the dogs to run and play off leash. However, for the safety of the dogs and owners’ peace of mind, we strongly recommend that you bring muzzles. Once the dogs have been introduced and we observe their interaction it may be okay to let them play without them. And don’t forget poo bags as there is no dispenser at the field.
