Supporting & Representing British Breeders

Encouraging high standards of welfare for all, from birth to retirement.


The Breeders’ Forum supports and represents the interests of British breeders of racing greyhounds.

We support breeders by promoting events, competitions and incentives for British bred greyhounds, as well as seeking funding to enhance the quality of litters bred, whilst ensuring we encourage high standards of welfare, with members encouraged to follow our code of ethics.

Working closely with the Greyhound Stud Book, run tirelessly by Liz Mort, our goals are aligned and we are striving for a better future for, not only British Breeding, but greyhound racing as a sport.

We welcome new members, not only breeders, but anyone who wishes to add their support to British breeding and actively welcome new ideas and feedback in order to further encourage British breeding and improve the success of British bred greyhounds.

All BGBF competitions are restricted to British Bred greyhounds, born and earmarked in Britain.


The BGBF are continually striving to secure sponsorship and support for British Bred races to help encourage breeding on our shores. Since our inception ,we have forged close working relationships with a number of top promoters in the sport.
