Due to the amateur state of racing, owners are usually also the trainer and rearer of the dogs; it is very rare that a dog is kenneled with a trainer.
Racing takes place on both oval and straight tracks. Greyhound racing is a popular industry in Great Britain with attendances at around 3.
There are currently 21 registered stadiums in Britain, and a parimutuel betting tote system with on-course and off-course betting available.
On 24 July , in front of 1, spectators, the first greyhound race took place at Belle Vue Stadium where seven greyhounds raced around an oval circuit to catch an electric artificial hare.
Greyhounds are not kept at the tracks, and are instead housed in the kennels of trainers and transported to the tracks to race.
Those who race on the independent circuit known as 'flapping' , do not have this regulation. Some of the more prominent stadiums that have closed where greyhound racing has been staged in the past are as follows: Greyhound racing as a whole in the UK peaked in but has been in decline since the opening of betting shops in and despite a mini boom in the late s there are only 21 licensed tracks left in Britain.
In the United States, greyhound racing is governed by state law. Industry attempts at self-regulation have been criticized by humane organizations.
At American tracks, greyhounds are kept in kennel compounds, in crates that are approximately three feet wide, four feet deep, and three feet high.
Each turnout can be from 30 to 90 minutes. In addition to state law and regulations, most tracks adopt their own rules, policies and procedures.
In exchange for the right to race their greyhounds at the track, kennel owners must sign contracts in which they agree to abide by all track rules, including those pertaining to animal welfare.
If kennel owners violate these contract clauses, they stand to lose their track privileges and even their racing licenses.
In order to be licensed to own, handle a race dog or work in a kennel, dog professionals must have a FBI background check and be licensed by the states.
Additionally, the National Greyhound Association holds their membership to strict standards towards the care and handling of the dogs.

Always have plenty of fresh water available and during the summer; your greyound might enjoy a "dip" in a kiddie pool in your yard.
Remember too, greyhounds coming from the track have never walked on rough surfaces, such as gravel or asphalt. Their feet have only touched soft sand, smooth cement, and the flooring of crates the entire time they have been at the track.
Because of this, bruising, splitting and tearing of the foot pads can occur if care is not taken to avoid these surfaces when first introduced into their adoptive homes.
Very brief, gradual exposure to these surfaces will eventually toughen the pads, but efforts to avoid this should be taken during the first week of arrival from the track.
Most retired racers have suffered at least one musculoskeletal injury during their racing career. These injuries re-inflame easily and can produce a chronic problem if great care is not taken to avoid continuous aggravation to a pre-existing sprain, fracture or strain.
As exhilarating as it is to watch your greyhound run, please remember that these dogs are much more fragile than they appear.
Don't make your greyhound pay for your mistakes; enjoy their graceful elegance, but don't let them be the ones to pay the price of pain, or worse yet, their life.
