The Greyhound Club of America is the national breed club for Greyhounds within the American Kennel Club. The GCA promotes responsible breeding of Greyhounds as well as training and showing in a variety of venues.

Here you can learn about our breed, about their accomplishments, about our club, and much more.

Their beauty and attitude is what drew me to Greyhounds. Watching them run is truly a thing of beauty, whether they be young or old. They are smart and exceptional hounds that do enjoy working alongside their masters. You really cannot ask for a better dog. — Annemarie Pack

In Spring 2018 GCA's new Versatility and Multitalented Award program was first announced.

The first award earned was a VGC (Versatile Greyhound, Conformation Track) award by Linda Zucker's Ch Lakilanni School's Out SC RI TKN CGC. Kingsley earned a VCG2 on the basis of his AKC Championship, his ASFA Field Championship, and his Advanced Nosework title with UKC.

Interested in a Greyhound puppy?
Whisper and Zack 8 wksAKC greyhound breeders are a small group and it is not unusual to have to go outside your area for a puppy. That means building a relationship over the phone with the breeder and through networking with others who may have bought a puppy from this breeder previously. The breeder should be happy to supply you with those contacts.
