How do you make a greyhound happy?
These tips will help you and your greyhound to be healthy and happy:
or outdoors? Due to their low body fat levels, greyhounds don’t cope well with very hot or very cold weather. Provide a retreat for them so that they have a place they feel safe and secure — this may be having a bed in a quiet part of the house or outside under shelter.
What does T stand for in greyhound form?
Information not taken or recorded. t. Raced tightly during running. e. Eased during running.
In our analysis we have compared the winning probabilities of each trap in dry weather conditions (being no rain in the 12 hours before the race) and in wet weather conditions (being more than 1 mm of rain in the 12 hours before the race).
As evidenced below, trap number 1 sees its winning probability reduce by 0.6%, whilst trap numbers 3 to 6 have winning probabilities increase by 0.2% to 0.3%. Therefore, rainy conditions tend to favour outside traps on average.
Rain is well known for affecting greyhound races. As discussed in this post, rainy weather tends to favour heavier dogs. They are indeed more muscular and better at going through mud. The key is to know your track and what part of it is affected more when it’s raining. Water tends to generally stay on the inside track and therefore the outside traps are favourable in wet conditions, as they allow the greyhound the potential to run on a better track.
