Greyhound 101 - Greater Wellington Region

Welcome and congratulations on adopting your family member!

Like any relationship, you and your Greyhound have a lot to learn about each other. What energises them, their unique nuances, behaviour's, the best way to train and integrate them into life with you. Taking on and adopting a dog brings with it a lot of excitement as well as responsibilities. 

For the Greater Wellington Region, we offer a 4 hour workshop on foundational learning and practical training for Greyhound owners.  

You may be contemplating adoption, have recently adopted or have had your hound for a while and want to further enhance your training or want some advice or guidance.

The course will cover a multitude of topics. Course content such as Q&A sessions to go over aspects ranging from transitioning from kennel life to home life, training on reading body language & purpose oriented games that will help introduce your Greyhound to different experiences in a safe manner.

We are pleased and proud that our course is recommended by Nightrave Greyhounds NZ, May Hounds Charitable Trust and GAP NZ.

Investment for the 4 hour workshop is $240 (includes Group follow-up notes sent post-workshop).

The course venue is located at Needlenose Hound Services, 101 Valley Rd, Paraparaumu .
