The Greyhound Commitment

Welfare is paramount within licensed greyhound racing and everyone across the sport is committed to optimising the care our greyhounds receive throughout their lives – not just the period they are racing.

Our Greyhound Commitment encapsulates our dedication to our greyhounds and sets out the ways in which we constantly strive to drive welfare standards forward.

Since the Commitment was launched in 2018, several important and successful initiatives have been introduced including the Greyhound Retirement Scheme, the Injury Recovery Scheme and independent residential kennel inspections as a condition of trainer licensing.

Through our welfare strategy, 'A Good Life for Every Greyhound', we seek to build on the Commitment and further safeguard welfare for the long term.
