Full Answer

Greyhounds can reach speeds of up to 45 mph. With their long legs and a narrow torso, greyhounds enjoy short, intense sprints more than long, leisurely walks. A safe, enclosed area is the best place for a greyhounds to tire themselves out; otherwise, they can develop hyperactivity. If raced against other greyhounds, these dogs should wear muzzles to prevent bites.
