Have you ever wanted to experience the adrenaline-fuelled thrill and sheer enjoyment of seeing your own Greyhound be the first across the finish line?
Brighton & Hove Stadium is the perfect place to begin your Greyhound-owning career. There’re numerous friendly Trainers to help you get started, alongside a multitude of benefits you’ll receive at the stadium with your Owner’s Pass.
The first thing to consider is: can you afford to own a Greyhound?
There are many conditions that can affect the price of a Greyhound, such as the age, breeding and class. Depending on these factors, you could be looking at anywhere from several hundred to a few thousand pounds.
Speak to one/some of the trainers here at Hove! They’ll be more than happy to give you some helpful advice and handy tips that will get you started. Plus, they will most likely have some younger Greyhounds in training that could be available to buy.
It’s important to remember that on top of the initial purchase of your Greyhound, its upkeep will incur additional fees. It’s fairly inexpensive however - with it costing only around £5 - £6 per day, plus any veterinary expenses when required. Feel free to contact a trainer beforehand to discuss these details.
If you’re looking to reduce the cost of owning a Greyhound, why not enter into a syndicate with a few others? This way you’ll get to enjoy all the benefits at a fraction of the price!
The most important consideration you must have when thinking about owning a Greyhound is its welfare. Please ensure you have planned out what you will do with your Greyhound when its racing days are over. They make fantastic pets, but a home can be found through the help of a homing scheme if you’d rather not keep it.
Finally, have fun with your Greyhound! Chances are, it won’t win in the big leagues so have realistic expectations and enjoy every moment you have with it.
