We understand transparency is important...
The National Greyhound Association, in conjunction with greyhound racing facilities and volunteers, have developed a series of kennel tour events.
These tours will provide a glimpse of the daily lifestyle of our professional greyhound athletes. We encourage the dog loving public, government officials and voters to learn about the excellent care and lifestyle of the racing greyhound.
Update 8/31/18: The FL State Department of Business and Regulation has insisted we cancel our tour access to the kennels.
We have modified our tours to satisfy their new policies. Tours will be held track side, in public spaces,include a Q&A with racing professionals and a meet the canine athletes.
Please consider signing up for email notifications. If new educational opportunities arise or the State reconsiders their position on transparency, we will notify the public via an email.
Currently, all tours are free. For safety reasons, tours are for ages 10 and older.
