Timmy, has been with us for some time and he really needs his forever home. Timmy, is a young boy who loves being in the garden. He particularly enjoys try to get my other two to play and it can get a bit boisterous and loud.

He loves human contact and will always happily great people, sometimes a bit to enthusiastic, but remember he is only 2 so still a youngster. He gets on with my 5 year old daughter who can be very loud and active, but always supervise your dog in the presence of children. He also loves his fellow Greyhound contact. He does need a home where he has another Greyhounds around which makes his management easier.

Timmy, is doing well with obedience. I have thought him some basics, such as loose lead walking, walking to heel, stopping at a curb, the stay in the home, some distracting techniques. Not all are perfect but he is so much better then when we first had him.

Timmy, is going to be at Daybreaks birthday event this Sunday. If you are interested in this lovely and loving boy we will be there around 13.00. If you can give him a home with other Greyhounds, please come and see him. If you want support with settling Timmy, Talk of the Dog will provide 2, 1 hour sessions within a month of adopting Timmy. Timmy, really needs and deserves a forever home please come and see him.

What a lovely update on Timmy. He sounds like he’s progressed so well in his time with Erik and is now well and truly ready for his forever home. Fingers crossed for him and thanks to Erik for working his magic with this handsome boy x

Timmy has had a very good last six weeks. He is a very loving boy with special needs due to his anxiety. The special needs are patience and lots of tender loving care, which anybody would be happy to give. His anxiety levels have improved so much for the better. He is also not responding as much to cars, trucks or other loud noises. He is certainly raising his head and showing interest, but no longer the spinning on lead or lunging. He will react to the modified cars to make loud noises or loud motorbikes, I myself get spooked by these noises. Like all of us we have good and bad days, this is the same for him.

We had concerns about his continuous weeing in the house, not gaining weight and his loose stool. He has had a blood and urine test, these have come back clean. That is good news. He was placed on Royal Canine Gastro…. Food which helped him gain weight. His stool is still not great, together with Daybreaks we are trying to find the food that works well for him. The good news is that he is gaining weight and starting to look healthy. In terms of the weeing this is also improving, he has the occasional accident during the night but he has learned how to ask to go outside and have a wee. Again more good news that the weeing in the house has almost stopped.

Timmy, and the 2 other boys were attacked by a loose walking Husky, no owners around and went for my pack head on. Luckily none of the dogs were injured, I came off worse and spent the morning in hospital. It has set Timmy back a little as he is responding more to other dog breeds.

Timmy has been put through his paces with training, this has mainly focused on loose lead walking. His pulling and darting from left to right and in front or behind you was terrible. Now he is walking mostly next to me and is not often darting from left to right and he is getting that a change of direction should be behind me not in front of me. This week I was at the Kennels and asked one of the volunteers to walk him and let me know how he did. I was very pleased to hear that he pulled a little and occasionally changed direction, but it was not a challenge to walk him. You have to keep in mind that he has not been walked by this volunteer and it is a novel/new environment. They generally revert back to old behaviours in these situations, that is why it is so pleasing that he behaved so well.

Timmy loves the attention of people, he will walk up to them tail wagging like mad and wanting the attention, lick and nibble their hands out of excitement. He also loves his play. He has come out of his shell much more now, which my wife also said this morning. She found him a zombie when he first arrived. Now he is this very playful young boy. He enjoys playing with the toys we have, enjoys tug of war, loves his zommies in the garden and invites, especially Caesar, to play with him and run around in the garden. The latter can be a noisy affair but fun to watch.

He really needs his forever home. He will suit someone who is patient and has other greyhounds. He really settled quickly with the other two here. He is full of energy and would probably love a garden to run around in. Someone, who is able to play with him as he does like tug of war and ruffing it out with fluffy toys or even bedding. He is an early bird. What you will get in your home is a loving boy who wants all the attention he can get, wants to play and is so happy to see people. What a brilliant new family member to welcome in your family.

Timmy has had a busy month. I worked with him to get used to sights and sounds. He sometimes still gets nervous when a car/van passes with a trailer or an empty but noisy truck. He is no longer reacting to the wheelie bin or a bag other then showing interest. I have taken him to the market when they were setting up and he was very curious about a large truck and a small trailer. I am really pleased with him how he has responded to desensitisation.

We also had a long trip all the way to Weston Super Mare. He was brilliant during the car journey. We had one stop to allow them to relief themselves. It was very exciting for all of them (Barney and Caesar) they were constantly air scenting. The beach was a challenge as there were dogs running off lead. Timmy found the kites also a scary experience. Overall he did really well and we stayed till the tide come in and he could (hesitantly) explore the sea water.

I also took Timmy with me to the Nuneaton dog training club. We had a morning for instructors. This was a perfect opportunity to do some lead work with him. I was really impressed with him as he nicely approached a dog and engaged well with her. Even with a little wirehaired Jack Russell. We did some heel work with him and he was doing well.

Timmy, is not a cat dog. He will definitely react to cats and squirrels. He is relatively good with other dog breeds. He is not always interested in them. In fact I feel he is helping Caesar who is reacting a lot less to other dogs with Timmy around. So thank you Timmy with helping Caesar.

I have done some more owner absent related behaviour assessments. As I have mentioned before he is fine with me leaving the house if Caesar and Barney are around. He will settle and wait for my return. If I take Barney and Caesar with me, that is a different story. He will start to call for the pack quickly. In terms of managing this, best if he has other Greyhounds around him.

Timmy, is a really lovely dog. He is certainly a peoples dog. He will always go up to them wag his tail like mad and happily take all the fuss he can get. He is also doing well with my daughter and is getting used to her occasionally going a bit mad. Timmy is so much more relaxed now and less scared of the world. He seems to really have come out of his shell and now and then is so very playful. It is great to see.

I got a call last Tuesday if I could take in a highly stressed young boy. Not happy in the kennels, chewing bars etc. After a chat with the big boss, I agreed to have him. I took Caesar and Barney to see if they get on. In the run it was a bit of fun and games, but after a chat I still took him home.

On the way home, he produced lots of smelly farts, which continued in the evening. We let him settle in the home and this all went well. The next day the farting almost disappeared. He is a loving and exuberant young boy. Always pleased to see people.

What I have noticed that he is happy and playful in the house. However, he is a bit scared of the world out there. He is constantly air scenting, he can cower when a car door shuts, he scared of automatic doors or loud noises, such as wheely bins or trolleys. He was even scared of bags the caught the wind. This is not a problem when correctly managed with positive re-enforcement and being calm and patient with him.

I also done a owner absent related behaviour observation. This has shown that he is fine when he is with other dogs, simply settles and you don’t hear him. When I walk my boys separately, and he is home alone or even with my wife there he will whimper and bark. This suggests to me that he probably be happier with on or more other dogs. If alone he needs to be taught to be happy on his own. Which takes lots of patients and time.

During the walk he is chaotic, which can be expected given his nervousness outside. This is easily managed through lead control. He is not cat friendly or at this stage used to different breeds. I have walked him using treats and sat down at certain points so he can get used to the sights, smells and sounds of traffic with continuous positive re-enforcement. He has been to Dobbie’s and today we will go to a forest. All this to aid his positive experiences.

We have a 5-year-old daughter. She has had dogs around her since she was born. We have taught her how to be around dogs, what to do and not to do. Timmy is fine with her, when my daughter gets over excited or makes noises that catches Timmy’s attention, I will need to tell her to calm it down. Dog interaction with baby’s, toddlers and children must always be supervised. A dog who is fine to changing to a dog not being fine with a situation takes only a fraction of a second.

Timmy is a very affectionate dog; he has calmed down so much already in a short space of time. He greets you with a happy face. In the morning I am woken up by his tongue, when he gets overexcited, he can nibble your hand or nose. He is a lovely young boy to have around likes to play with fluffy toys. Sorry for the essay I hope it helps.

It was sad to see Timmy back at Daybreaks yesterday but it just wasn't the right situation for him. His owner was very sad to return him and hopes the right home will be found for Timmy as soon as possible. We all hope that Bea will be more settled with her owner now she is on her own. Xxx Timmy is a really sweet lad, I'm sure the perfect home will soon be his. Xxx

A big cuddle for Timmy tonight. He had his neutering operation today. He only had one testicle visible which meant he had to be opened up to look for the other one. It was found in his abdomen. All went well. Xxx
Thanks so much to Richard for picking him up this afternoon. He was very bright and ate all his dinner on his return. Bless him, such a lovely lad. Xxx

Thanks so much to Norman for taking Timmy to the park today. He has been quite unsettled since his arrival and it was good for him to have a break from the kennels. He is a lovely lad who has lots to learn about the big wide world. :)) Xxx

Timmy arrived at Daybreaks on Friday and today paid his first visit to Brueton Park. He is only 22 months old and never raced. Consequently he is even more unaware of life outside of kennels than greyhounds who raced regularly and probably experienced large groups of people at the tracks. This may help to explain why he can find new situations quite daunting and make him feel rather unsure of himself.
Considering all these things he actually did very well while in the park today.
As he grew in confidence he was keen to meet people and children, showed no negatives in meeting other breeds and although on the lead he can follow an erratic course (he does love to sniff bushes and trees !!)he will eventually become more accustomed to the lead. A very loving boy who will enjoy a home with lots of love and affection and perhaps not too much unexpected noise or disturbances.
