The very first Greyhound World Congress, was held in Norway on August 26th and 27th, 2017, organized by the Norwegian Greyhound Club. The main aims/themes of the congress were the following:
- To bring together greyhound fanciers from all over the world (breeders, owners, judges) to exchange knowledge and experience.
- To expand knowledge of the breed’s history, development and function.
- To spread knowledge about the breed standard(s) and possibly work towards one worldwide greyhound standard (an interesting idea that may well be pursued, is to develop a «list of merit» similar to the one in existence for Irish Wolfhounds).
- To actively map and work to improve greyhound health.
The GWC Committee and The Norwegian Greyhound Club are proud to tell the congress was a big success, and want to give a big THANK YOU to the moderator, all the speakers and all the participants! This album will be a memory about a fabulous weekend with GREYHOUNDS FANCIERS gathered from 19 countries around the world!
