Brilliant turnout for our New Years Day 2015 Greyhound Walk - if you were there can you spot yourself?!?

Greyhound Walks are a group of greyhound, lurcher and sighthound owners and lovers who regularly meet for an hours stroll, chatter and the sharing of doggy tales in and around Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and Hertfordshire.

We always meet on the second Sunday of the month at The Discovery Centre Great Notley Country Park, Braintree, Essex at 10am. We also walk most weekends at other venues in and around our counties, see the Walk Calendar for all our planned walks.

Anyone with a greyhound or lurcher or other sighthound is more than welcome to join us, or anyone who would just like to walk out with greyhounds to see what great pets they make. Maybe even take one for a Test Drive! Just turn up on the day and you'll be made very welcome.

We also hold GreyhoundPLUS walks where other dogs from your sighthound family can come along too!  See Walks & Events for details. 

If you join us we ask you to observe our few walk rules:

Our walk rules:

  • dogs are to be kept on their lead at ALL times.
  • please bring your dogs muzzle if they need it, especially new owners. Better safe than sorry
  • please don't use extending or long lunge leads (these can cause nasty accidents in a group walk
  • each owner is responsible for their dog's behaviour.
There's no charge to come on a walk but we do have a voluntary contributions bucket. Money collected is used to help cover our running costs and primarily help needy Essex, Suffolk, Hertfordshire and Norfolk sighthounds through donations and grants.  We also donate to other needy sighthound causes, (email our trustees for details on

Our aims are to:

  • support Essex, Suffolk, Hertfordshire and Norfolk greyhound and lurcher rehoming organisations.
  • support other greyhound and lurcher rehoming organisations who share our aims.
