It is pretty obvious when a walk just isn't enough for Luna. She needs a good run. The problem is that Luna will only do real hard running in two locations: my parents' backyard and Mike's parents' backyard. She is too scared to run at a dog park (thanks to our second collision) even if she is the only dog in the park. She'll do a couple of quick sprints, but nothing that would totally exhaust her.
Yesterday, I tried a new location. We went to a ball field in my parents' neighborhood that is pretty secluded. I thought this might help Luna relax since it doesn't look anything like a dog park. Once again, she did a few sprints, but was not comfortable enough for real running. I think she enjoyed the opportunity to sniff a new location.
Finally, I gave in and took her to my parents' house where she tore up the backyard. I wish I had someone with me to film her running. She doesn't run away from me and then return like my last greyhound did. Instead, she spins in circles around me, nips at my shirt, play bows, and growls a lot. In order to get her to run I have to have her chase me. We end up just running back and forth across the yard. This time I had her squeaky toy on the whip so she could chase after the toy.
It is exhausting to get Luna's zoomies out and I wish that she would just run around like a normal greyhound. On the plus side, I finally got her tired...at least for a few hours.
