Because there is life beyond the track



‘Website Woof’ presents Sam – born 2015.

We hope you enjoy reading the volunteers’ descriptions of their walks with the hounds. If you would like to find out more Sam please visit our kennels and talk with a member of staff. The kennels are open daily for hound walking from 11am until 2pm and are located at Burhill Kennels, Turners Lane, Hersham, KT12 4AW.

Alex Benis walked Sam at Silvermere today and had this to say:

Sam is a beautiful big black hound, very handsome and alert he has to investigate everything with a good sniffing over. He has a lovely personality and I instinctively took to him and he enjoyed the attention and being taken out somewhere new.

I had to help him into the car – probably just because this is new to him. He is good on a lead – such a big lad who does not pull is a very nice surprise. He is fine with other greyhounds and loves people but does need a little work with other breeds. He got excited when we met other dogs but not in an aggressive or barking way. His motivation seems to be excitement and curiosity.

Sam has so much to offer, it was lovely to be with him on a walk. He is so young and curious about the world about him, it was funny to see what caught his interest as he has very expressive ears!

I love this boy, he has a fantastic personality and is great company – what a hound!”
