If you come across a large group of greyhounds strolling with their owners in Marsden Weir Park this Saturday morning, it's not a coincidence.
They didn't just happen to run into each other - this particular posse of pooches is the Goulburn Greyhound Pack Walk, a chance for everyone (human and beast) to get a bit of exercise and socialisation, out on "sniffari".
Organiser David Banham started the group in July last year, and runs it about once a month.
"It's a group of greyhound owners who love to get together and talk about their dogs, their quirks, and get a bit of exercise," said Mr Banham, whose family has owned and loved a greyhound named Oscar for seven years.
"They're not a breed everyone's been exposed to, so we want to get them out there and show what they're like in the flesh."
Mr Banham said the most popular misconception in the community is that greyhounds are highly energetic dogs.
"People think they need lots of exercise, but give them 20 minutes of exercise a day, and after that you'll never see them - they're 40 mile an hour couch potatoes," he said.
"They're not something you'd classically think of as a pet dog,because people think of them as too athletic, although they only are for 45 seconds of the day.
"And these dogs are like a Labrador in a greyhound body - they love food."
The Banhams adopted Oscar from a local trainer, who gave them support as they learned how to care for him.
He said trainers often come on the walk to socialise their dogs in preparation for putting them through the Greyhounds As Pets (GAP) adoption program.
The walk is good fun for all involved.
"I go on the Man Walk with Dan Strickland each week, and this was a inspired by that a bit," said Mr Banham.
"The Pack Walk is a case of being able to just get together with another."
Saturday's Pack Walk will set off at 9.30am from Marsden Weir and return there by about 11am.
