I've been walking this gorgeous greyhound for about 9 months and she's one of my favourites to walk as I really do like a greyhound.
She's about 4 years old now and was recently retired from racing when her owners re-homed her last summer. She's a very gentle girl and is very used to being walked in a pack, like most dogs she's a little excitable when we first go out but soon settles down and walks very nicely on the lead.
She's definitely the clumsiest dog I walk and you can almost guarantee that April will get herself entangled in a lead on most walks and if she doesn't manage that then her other trick is to stop dead with no warning causing me to bump into her boney back end!
April for me is a real success story because initially she was walked with a muzzle as she could be very reactive to other dogs. After about 3 months the muzzle came off and we haven't looked back since, she's very friendly with the rest of the pack although to be fair she can still sometimes react to random dogs that get a little too close but she's finally worked out that not everything small and fluffy is a rabbit that needs chasing. Here's April out on a dog walk in North Shields with some of her doggy pals.
