  • KEEP YOUR GREYHOUND BUSY WHILE YOU’RE AT WORK

    We can’t all work at home anymore, or take our dogs to work with us, so many of our hounds are spending a lot of time alone during the workweek. You think about your dog all alone at home — and you wonder what they’re doing or if they’re bored or lonely. Leaving your pup home alone is inevitable for many working dog owners.
