Overview
A lively breed, the Whippet is rather sensitive. Proper introductions should be done at an early stage. This breed has a wonderful disposition, but can be very shy if not properly socialized. Does not do well with small and passive animals, but is generally good with other dogs given they are gradually introduced. The Whippet is a fast runner, and should always be kept on a lead.
Character
Very fun loving and energetic, this breed is prone to shyness. Does well in working sports, but is very gentle. Not recommended as a kennel pet, the Whippet is best suited as a household companion. They have many athletic traits, and are great sprinters.
Temperament
Amiable, docile, yet high energy, the Whippet makes a wonderful child's companion providing the child knows how to handle a dog. Rather independent, this breed is also a quick learner but does require consistent training methods and variety as they bore quickly. The Whippet is a very sensitive breed and should never be roughly handled, as shyness is a factor.
Care
Very easily groomed, Whippets must however be protected from the cold. His short, smooth and silky coat does not adapt well to colder climates. Averagely shedding, occasional brushing to limit shedding should suffice. Bathing every six months should be fine, as the short coat does not trap dirt well.
Coat
The Whippet has a short, tight, and smooth coat. Firm in texture, yet soft. Coat does not adapt well to colder climates so this breed needs a considerable amount of protection from cold weather. Coat should remain fairly weather resistant given the length, and texture.
Training
The Whippet does best in a home with a gentle and warm handler. Being very intelligent, they are also independent which does require a bit of variety to keep them interested. Does well in working and obedience, the Whippet loves to run and would do exceptionally well in a sprinting sport.
Activity
A small yard will do for this small yet active dog. A daily walk should do. Should not be let off lead unless in a fenced in yard as they will chase and kill small and fast animals. Should regularly run in a yard if possible, but will do well with no yard if given opportunities to run, perhaps in a park.
