The most common way to bet on greyhound racing is to pick a selection and back it to win a particular race. You can either choose to be paid out at the starting price if your dog wins or you can take the price the greyhound is at the time of striking the bet.
Likewise, how do you handicap a dog race?
But most dog races CAN be handicapped using the basic factors of speed, class, pace and race makeup. Position - both start position and where the dog will be able to position itself relative to its running style - are the other two important factors.
As well, do Greyhounds have good endurance? Greys are built for speed – not endurance. Greyhounds are affectionately considered to be the laziest breed — however just like any dog, they love to play! ... Greyhounds are naturally gentle dogs, but as 'sight hounds' they can easily be incited to chase moving objects.
That said, are Greyhounds treated badly?
Racing greyhounds endure lives of confinement, are subject to standard practices that are cruel and suffer injuries and even death. Greyhounds used for racing are kept in cages, barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around, for up to 23 hours per day.
How do greyhounds pick their winners?
1. Good draws win races. Look for the races when the runner in trap one is the only railer – that's a dog who prefers to run on the inside of the track. If every other dog has a 'm' for middle runner or 'w' for wide runner in brackets after its name, you've found the ideal race.

Destructive behavior from a greyhound can be everything from some innocent paper-shredding to full-blown domestic breakage. Greyhound puppies are jokingly known as “landsharks.” The destructive adult greyhound is more like a beaver; chewing doors, cabinets, window frames, and furniture.
The most common reason is that they are trying to communicate with you. Staring means your greyhound is interested in what you are doing, and may even want something that you have. Staring has mostly positive intentions, and may also be used to express love for you as their owner.
Greyhounds are sprinters, not distance runners, so if you intend to run long distances with your dog, start with a one-mile jog and slowly increase the distance. A long run can be detrimental to your greyhound's health if he is not conditioned. ... Heat exhaustion is common in dogs.
You can expect to pay anything from $2,500 – $15,000 for a well-bred greyhound pup, depending on its breeding, but it's not necessarily a case of the more you spend the greater your chances of finding a champion.
WHY ARE THE GREYHOUNDS I'VE SEEN SO SKINNY? ... Greyhounds do not do well with extra weight on their frames. Extra weight can cause many health problems and even shorten a dog's life. Many people make the mistake of over feeding their dogs because they want to “fatten them up.” We advise adopters against this.
A law introduced to Australia in 1927 states that greyhounds must wear a muzzle when in a public place. This law was introduced originally on the race track to protect the dogs from injuring themselves when racing, and “in public” came to mean all public places.
Number 1 (the red rug) appears to have plenty of room here as numbers 2 and 3 appear to be slower starters based on recent race history. The number 1 box also produces the most winners (see below "stats"), so we just want to then look at recent race times at Wentworth Park over 520m compared to the other greyhounds.
What various academic and recreational research from bettors has found is betting on favourites generally allows you to lose more slowly. This isn't a great long-term strategy, but as a starting point it at least demonstrates that betting the favourite is rarely a bad bet.
Retired racers are low-maintenance. They require minimal grooming; their exercise needs are low to moderate for a dog of their size. They're compliant and have a personality that helps them adapt quickly to a new lifestyle. Most Greyhounds are naturally laid-back, well mannered, and sensitive.
