A stalwart of the Victorian greyhound racing community has listed the Little River home and training premises where he once raised champion dogs.

The home training premises of a greyhound racing stalwart is tracking towards a strong Little River sale.

“He’s raised a couple of Australasian champions,” Barry Plant Werribee agent Jonathon Bird said of the vendor, who co-owned and trained Lady Toy.

“He wants to enjoy the dogs at the track now.”

“He ran dogs for many years — it’s been a very lucky farm for him, but he’s 82 and moving to the country — closer to family and relatives.”

With seven dog runs up to 180m long, kennels, pup yards and a three-bedroom house, the 4.57ha property at 65 Bates Rd has a price guide of $1.3-$1.4 million.

But budding trainers would have to sort out their own accreditation if they wanted to continue the property’s use for greyhounds.

“It’d be perfect for a horse owner or dog — it’s fully permitted for 20 adult dogs plus pups,” Mr Bird said.

“The permit is for the person not the land — but it’s just passed so it’d be all fine. Or you could move a couple of runs and turn it into a horse paddock.”

Mr Bird said he’d already fielded plenty of queries about the property, mostly from Melbourne.

“There’s a broad section of buyers who want to escape the city but have easy access to it,” he said.

“People buying in Little River have more of a long-term view as well. With growth pushing so hard it will be a good place over the decades.”

The vendor will take his most recent champion — now a beloved pet — to his new home.

“She gets the best lifestyle you can ask for,” Mr Bird laughed.

“She’s a beautiful dog actually.”
