If you have ever considered entering your sighthound in one of the various forms of running sports for gazehounds, this could be one of your most invaluable resources. It ranks right up there with having the rule books for the various sports in which you are interested. It's handy for those of us who have been at the games for a while but could use a refresher and reminder as well as for rank novices. Laurel Drew
excerpt from our review: Running with the Big Dogs fills a gap that has existed in available literature about greyhound adoption. In it Lee Livingood discusses greyhound behavior and the reasons behind that behavior, and gives good suggestions on how to make the transition from a working racing dog to family life in the community. She accomplishes this without playing on the pity theme that results in adoptions that don't work out once the adopter's altruistic feelings have subsided.
Ms. Burnham is a well known breeder and trainer of a fine line of show champion greyhounds, and her book on dog training is based on her experience training her own dogs.
This is not written as a guide to general Greyhound care. It is an obedience training book written by a Greyhound breeder and all but two pages of the many lovely illustrations are photographs of Greyhounds. It covers basic obedience (AKC) through the Utility Dog exercises.
The Author has greyhounds and has pictures of them in her books; this book is wonderful for the sighthound breed and other breeds that are not obedience loving dogs.
