Today’s Wednesday Wisdom brings you another busted myth from our friends at Greyhound Facts to help expand your greyhound racing knowledge, whether you are an experienced greyhound racing spectator or are new to the sport.
Myth: Greyhounds are aggressive; therefore, they have to be muzzled.
Fact: Greyhounds have very thin skin. Normal, mouthy dog play can cause tears and holes. When you have several dogs running and playing together at the same time, a plastic basket muzzle is a smart precautionary measure to take. It also protects the dogs from eating things that could be dangerous such as rocks. They can still keep their mouths wide open and drink while wearing them.
Greyhound Facts is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Their mission is to provide a place to learn about all aspects of present day greyhound racing in the USA from those with hands on experience. Their network of volunteers includes people who are actively involved in the breeding, raising, training, and rehoming of these wonderful hounds, as well as those who adopt them.
