My greyhound on the other hand would run out sink it's teeth into it devour it and then rampage the country side, uncatchable at 45 mph, for years to come.

They are probably trained to sit/stay very well when there isn't a fun little furry thing outside. try separating all but one of them. keep him on a leash put him in a sit stay and keep your foot on that leash so that he does not feel pressure when he is in his stay but as soon as he tries to jump, bounce, roll, whatever he feels it and gets held in place. You should not be delivering corrections in this method, just taking away his freedom a little bit and working up the trust.
