Considering a Whippet?

Most whippets are very good with kids, but no dog of any breed should be left alone with young children. Think of your dog as a pair of scissors ... you wouldn't leave your toddler alone with them, but under supervision, she'll learn to use them correctly. Under supervision, both your child and your dog will learn to play together safely and happily. Please see Toddlers & Dogs for some very useful information!

.... whippets, like people, are individuals. The guidelines given here cover most of the whippets we have known, but for every rule we've known a whippet who didn't fit. Obviously we think this breed is the greatest. We also want to be sure anyone acquiring a whippet knows their special challenges before taking one home.

Please see Reasons Not to Get a Whippet at Kismet Sighthounds for a listing of just about every potential drawback of whippets! We also recommend the American Whippet Club's site, especially the Frequently Asked Questions page. And if you have further questions, contact us!
