Considering a Whippet?

Sporting Fields Hamlet

Whippets want to be with their people all the time! This is not a good breed for you if you plan to put your dog away when you have company or "when Dad gets home." A whippet left alone for long periods often becomes destructive and neurotic. Be sure you want a constant companion before you decide on a whippet!

Whippets need a regular chance to run. A large fenced yard (say at least 100' long) is ideal. If you don't have that, you'll need to visit a neighborhood tennis court or other large fenced area three or more times a week. Whippets are usually calm in the house but most have spells of running and leaping about in play a few times a day. These 'tears' are rarely destructive; whippets are not given to bodyslamming the bookcase or clearing the coffeetable with a sweep of the tail. If your whippet is more active in the house than you like, he is probably not be getting enough exercise.
