After Ruby passed, and as I was considering adopting a new greyhound, I did the responsible thing and spoke to my husband about it. Obviously, if you are considering adopting any animal, all family members must be on board with it. One condition I had to meet for my husband to agree to the adoption was to enroll our new greyhound in obedience classes. Ruby was never formally trained – we just played it by ear, and she figured it out pretty quick. Ruby, however, was a retired racer. Luna, on the other hand, was basically found on the streets of South Korea, left to fend for herself. She had no manners whatsoever, and I knew we would need some help with her.
I looked around and settled on the six week Beginner Training course offered through Petsmart. Enrollment fee: about $120.00.
