The Greyhound is famous around the world for its status as the fastest breed of dog. It bears many visual similarities to the Whippet, including its long body and snout; however, the Greyhound is the larger dog. Greyhounds are thought to be some of the oldest dogs in existence, with some cave paintings suggesting that the breed has been around for over 8,000 years! With that much experience, it’s no surprise that the Greyhound is a popular pick as a dog model and animal actor, thanks to its unmatched agility and its ability to learn more advanced tricks.
The air of elegance that the greyhound provides alongside its seamless ability to look charming in any item of clothing that they wear makes it a chief contender for modelling, photography and television shoots. Affectionately referred to as the ‘40mph couch potato’, the greyhound is the laziest yet most athletic dog breed you are likely to come across and its calm, laidback demeanour makes it the perfect dog breed to use on a variety of sets.
Ahead of being made available for hire, all of our greyhound dogs are comprehensively assed for their level of training by the team at Urban Paws. As a part of this process, we also ensure that they are being taken care of correctly by having the latest vaccinations and medical checks. By hiring an animal from the Urban Paws talent agency, you ensure they are fully prepared to work within a multitude of sectors.
