No need for owner trainers to have kennels. Dogs can be kept in the house - maximum of 2 dogs per owner trainer.

Check GBGB Rule 6 i c.

Rule 6 Licensing requirements - premises, facilities

i the Greyhound Regulatory Board shall have power to require that:

c all reasonable steps are taken to ensure that Greyhounds kept in Licensed Kennels, or in the case of Owner Trainers their residence, are maintained in good and healthy condition and are kept secure and that facilities and services necessary to those ends are provided in accordance with the directions of the Greyhound Regulatory Board.

Maureen's right - this taken from GBGB website explains how to go about it.

How to become an Owner Trainer
If you wish to apply for an Owner Trainer license please contact our offices where a member of staff will be delighted to send you an application form. Owner Trainer license holders are able to keep a maximum of two racing greyhounds, in registered in their sole ownership, in their home, without the need for separate kennel.
Applicants must be over 18 years of age.
All questions on the application form are compulsory and must be completed in full (in the applicant's own handwriting) and be supported by two recent passport-sized photographs, or the application will be returned to the applicant.

I would imagine you can apply now I'm guessing the process will probably take that long as there are forms to be completed and we're heading towards the Christmas break.

ok Maureen my story is this.ive recently brought home my dog from a pro trainers kennel as it looks or looked like his racing days were over but hes been responding so well to treatment im hoping there is a slim chance that he could race again.in another month or so i'll give him a gallop or two and see how he is.if there isn't any sign of injury or pain i'll eventually take him for a trial.if he comes through that i'll be thinking of racing as hes minor open class at best and could race for another year.any sign of injury or pain and i'll call it a day and that's him retired for good.he's pushing 4 now and gets the run of my house with my 11 year old ex racer

Just goes to show that Gbgb know nothing about keeping and training greyhounds IMHO.
