Considering a Whippet?

Bravo!

A whippet needs to be a part of the family. This is not a dog you can shut away in another room or in a crate when company comes, and it's not a dog you should  leave in the yard alone. Please be sure before you get a whippet that you're really ready for another family member...because that's what you're getting with a whippet!

Children

Whippets are not nearly as delicate as they appear and are usually excellent with gentle children . As long as a child is old enough to know how to treat him and is taught how to play with dogs, a whippet is a good choice for a child. A very young child should never be left alone with a dog of any breed and interaction between a child and a puppy must be closely supervised, for the protection of both. For some excellent information about kids and dogs, see Diamonds in the Ruff: Toddlers and Dogs. If you have older children, they'll enjoy the activity-intensive How to Love Your Dog.
