The Torrens and Peters team share the duties with their racing dogs.
“We are all in it together, it is a big family effort,” Peters said.
Peters will often do the ‘morning shift’ while Torrens will take them racing or trialling in the evening alongside his partner.
“I was interested one day and was playing with the dogs a bit,” Torrens recalls.
“I was asking a few questions to my partner's dad and we began to look online for some pups. And, it just went from there, as we bought two – with one of them winning on Saturday night. It has gone from there as we have bought more dogs.”
The kennel has six in work at the moment as well as a new litter they are working with.
“It is a handful and you do not get much spare time so you need to be committed to it,” Torrens said.
“Especially with work and what not, there is a lot of time and effort that goes into it all. Other than that, it is good.
“I really enjoy it. We are not doing it for the money, it is about the experience and the joy of it all.”
Ibrox Mccoist – a son of champion Western Australian dog Tommy Shelby – won on debut in early October of last year to give Torrens a winner at his first official starter.
Peters is involved in several aspects of the greyhound industry.
She regularly shows dogs at events such as the Ipswich Sweepstakes for racing greyhounds as well as helping rehome dogs through her hairdressing salon.
