Wednesday Wisdom: Myth Busted #4

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.
