  1. Will the Labor Day weekend event in Kankakee offer greyhound straight racing certification? Also, will the event offer a whippet dash dog category? Thank you.

    • Hi Randy,
      We don’t any spare greyhounds available to use to certify a dog with. If you bring one to run with the dog the needs certifying we have will certify it.
      Keep an eye on our practice dates. We routinely certify dogs at those. Unfortunately our last practice before the meet happened today. We usually have a couple greyhounds at our practices.
      Yes, we will be running DASH dogs if we get entries for them.
      See you there. Send Therese you entries. If you come without an entry let us know what you want to do. If you need to certify before the meet let us know right away so we can do it before LGRA inspection.

    • Dear Ms. Wanda:I am sorry that I never replied to this weorndful comment. Whippets are the most amazing creatures on the planet, and I so hope that you have the opportunity to share a portion of your life with one over the next few years. Perhaps you might contact a whippet/greyhound rescue organization to see if they have work for volunteers. You might be able to make contact in another fashion, besides being a pet “owner” per se. Finn, our whippet sends you his best. He is napping on the couch right now looking lovely as always! ~ A.
