What is Greenhounds?
Greenhounds is the program in NSW to facilitate the muzzling exemptions for retired racing and pet greyhounds in off-leash designated dog areas. Greenhounds is the sole NSW body authorised to manage and issue green collars under the Companion Animal Regulations. In NSW, from 1st July 2019, the Companion Animal Regulations were updated and pet greyhounds are no longer required to be muzzled in public, but must remain on leash like all breeds of dog. A greyhound still requires a muzzle in a specified off-leash dog area if it has not completed the Greenhounds program.
