Welcome to my website!<empty>  

Welcome to some interesting and informative sighthound pages. I try to give you an idea as to what a sighthound is like and why they think and act differently from other breeds!
Most people don't realize but there are more than 18 different sighthound breeds. Shown here is just a handful. Each page leads you on to the next from the bottom, so you can easily run through them all, or return to this "Chooser" page at any time.
I have created this site as a very caring sighthound enthusiast and advertising artist. I am English, but married to a Dane and we have lived in Denmark since 1970. I have owned sighthounds since 1984. My aim is to spread the knowledge of sighthounds both in Denmark via my Danish site, (www.mynder.dk) and the English speaking world.
I also address a few of the problems dog owners commonly have, (link near the bottom of the list on the right).
I have videos of Lure coursing and other doggy things on YouTube under my name: sighthounddotnet
Try me, if you need any kind of doggie advice - just send me a mail and ask! Whatever it is, I'll try to reply promtly.
Best wishes, Janet
