Dog Racing is as the name suggests the racing of dogs this very general term covers a range of activities, most commonly Greyhound and Whippet although other breeds race, both on tracks and across country. Sports sled dog racing are also included.

Dog racing is a very popular activity in one form or another as it can involve simply showing off how fast the family pet can run to a fully professional racing kennel.

Location depends entirely on the type of racing, and ranges from (greyhound)tracks in urban stadiums, (terriers)local country shows, (hound trailing and sled dog racing) undulating open and wooded countryside and tracks.

There is no official age or sex restriction to owning or training racing dogs. Often children are given a pup to train by a parent who dog races, making this an ideal family activity. Children must be kept away from the sports gambling aspects.

There are many competitions and trophies to be competed depending on the type of racing. To most the potential is, after all the breeding and training, seeing dogs perform to their full potential.
