The Greenhounds program allows for pet greyhounds to go muzzle free in public places after they successfully complete a re-training program and are deemed suitable by an approved Greenhounds assessor. 

Once approved with their muzzle exemption, all Greenhounds must wear a special green collar with a certified ID tag at all times when in public.

There are currently more than 1,000 certified Greenhounds with a muzzling exemption in NSW. 

A key benefit of the program is that has assisted in changing the perception that greyhounds are an aggressive breed. 

In addition, the Greenhounds website provides the public with accessible information about greyhounds and the Greenhounds program.

The Greenhounds program is fully funded and administered by GRNSW.
