Just awhile ago this 2014 event featuring Dr. Guillermo Couto was announced by Tina Kelly on the ‘Following Dr. Couto’ Facebook page.


As mentioned recently, Dr Couto and I (Tina Kelly) were working on something. I can now make the announcement.

Greyhound Trust & Alliance (GT&A) has an event guaranteed to make you Roo with joy as the 2014 Great Escape: Kennels to Kouches returns to Wheeling Island Casino & Racetrack in Wheeling, West Virginia, Aug 2-3, 2014. This time we are bringing some of North America’s leading experts on greyhound health and wellness with us. Greyhound Trust & Alliance is… pleased to announce that it is partnering with renowned greyhound veterinarian Dr. Guillermo Couto “greyhound whisperer” to present two days of greyhound education and fun as the Greyhound Wellness Conference co-locates with Greyt Escape – Kennel to Kouches Event in Wheeling, West Virginia.

The two-day event will feature a full day of education on the retired racer, followed by a day of puppy farm visits (Please note: farm tours are limited to a maximum of 45 people. Registration for this portion of the event is mandatory.), a mini trade show, boasting the hottest products and styles for today’s discerning hound owner, plus a parade of retires and so much more!
