Summerwind Kennel





We are located in Sparta, Tennessee and we are dedicated to raising and finding homes for some of the most wonderful, well socialized, and healthy AKC Registered Italian Greyhound and Whippet puppies.

Feel free to browse around our web site, look at the Italian Greyhound and Whippet puppies we have available and enjoy your visit If you do not see the puppy or dog of your dreams listed, just give us a call or drop us an e-mail or call.

We have litters expected and who knows, maybe one just delivered that we have not gotten pictures of on the web page yet! If you have questions or comments please feel free to contact us by phone or by e-mail.

All of our Summerwind Kennel Italian Greyhound Puppies and Whippets are AKC registered with most having extensive show champion backgrounds.

We breed for conformation, breed type and temperament in all of our dogs and puppies. All of our parents meet AKC standards and guidelines for show, quality, size, conformation, and temperament.

All Summerwind Italian Greyhound and Whippet Puppies are sold with either a spay/neuter contract, limited registry unless another mutual agreement is reached before the sale or show contract.

This is in preservation of Summerwind Kennels high breeding standards of Italian Greyhounds/Whippets and the inability to determine the quality of some young puppies at an early age.

If after the maturity of the puppy, it is determined that the puppy does meet the AKC standard and has NO conformational faults or defects, and a show quality puppy was purchased from Summerwind Kennel, a limited registered puppy or dog will be released for Full AKC Registration by the buyer.

Our Italian Greyhound and Whippet dogs/puppies are all health checked and cleared by a veterinarian before ever leaving our home. All vaccines and dewormings are current, and a health guarantee is offered on every puppy sold.

We here at Summerwind Kennel raise our dogs and puppies in clean, well ventilated, heated play pen kennels and inside our home. All dogs and puppies are loved, well socialized and underfoot, in a family environment. They have been around all types of animals, children and people.

Please become an informed buyer and look at the AKC Standard so you will know if you are being sold something that is not a healthy, small, refined, elegant and playful IG or Whippet. Ask questions of any breeder regarding size, health and temperament of a puppy, parents and even grandparents.

I hope this information helps you in your search for your Italian Greyhound or Whippet. Thanks again for stopping by and please, call if you see the Italian Greyhound or Whippet of your dreams and one which warms your heart.

A typical Eclipse puppy

Eclipse Whippets was established in 1990 in Lehighton, PA USA.

Our bloodline includes American, Canadian, French, Swedish & English Best In Show winners.

We strive for happy, healthy, friendly whippets that will be first and foremost a family companion. We currently have some young and older adults looking for companion homes.

We do not love these dogs any less, but would prefer that they be in a one or two dog household since they won't be bred again.

We will be having puppies come summer/fall 2010.

Trinity 4.5 months old

Trinity 4.5 months old

I have been involved in breeding whippets for 7 years now. I was fortunate to start with a beautiful 3 year old bitch(Chelsea Supenatural Odyssey)Brooklynn.

I finished her and after health testing, she produced three beautiful litters. These puppies qualified her for an ROM and include:

DC BIS CH Arwen Main Event at Summit SC (#6 AKC whippet 2009) "Maggie" (Sire-Ch Summit Sorcerers Apprentice)

DC Arwen Touch the Flame of Chelsea LCX2
(#1 DC AKC & #4 LC whippet 2009) "Giselle" (Sire-Ch Summit Sorcerers Apprentice)

Ch Arwen's Fairey Hoax "Morgan" (Sire-Ch Callaway Claymar Supernatural)

Ch Arwen's Dashing Runaway "Riley" (Sire-Gh Summit Sorcerers Apprentice)

CH Arwen Glitterati Of Bohem "Dazzle" (Sire-Ch Bohem Three Ring Circus)

Ch Arwen Glitter Fantasy "Erin" (Sire-Ch Bohem Three Ring Circus)


Ch Arwen Glitter Galaxy of Chelsea "Beckham" (Sire-Ch Bohem Three Ring Circus)


In Oct, 2009 I was blessed with my 2nd generation of puppies out of Erin (Ch Arwen Glitter Fantast X Ch Snow Hills Hot Stuff). She produced 11 of the most beautiful whippet puppies I have seen. 5 of them will make their show ring debuts at the 2010 AWC National in Tucson, AZ on their 6 month birthday.
They are:

Arwen True Blood at Jade "Bill"
Arewn Love Gottcha Claymar "Jason"
Arwen Annie's Song "Trinity"
Arwen Glamour You "V"
Arwen Sookie Stackhouse "Sookie"

There are 2 other "show" puppies:

Arwen Beautiful Dirty Rich "Ava"- Huston, TX
Arwen Ghosts and Grandure "Fantum" Halifax, Nova Scotia

The remaining 4 (placed in wonderful companion homes):

Arwen Mirror Mirror "Viggo"
Arwen Dancin in the Moonlight "Apple"
Arwen True Religion "Sam"
Arwen's Tully

As you can see, I have been very busy this winter with 11 puppies. I am now looking forward to showing my 2 (V and Sookie) and following the show careers and accomplishments of the others.

I appreciate the opportunity to boast about my beloved whippets and thoroughly enjoy hearing other whippet enthusiast do the same.


I also very much appreciate the love and hard work that has gone into the making of this web site. I find it very informative and useful.

Thank you!

Charmed Village Kennel

by Cherylyn
(Hinckley,Ohio,USA)

Lucky and Isabelle

Lucky and Isabelle

Charmed Village is a small family kennel located in Hinckley, Ohio, 20 miles south of Cleveland. We breed only a few ultra high quality whippet puppies a year. We do this because its fun, but make no mistake we are passionate about our dogs.

We have a long and loving history with dogs.
In the 70's and 80's my husband was enamoured with large breeds: Great Danes, Irish Wolfhounds, and Great Pyrenees, and his sister down the road from us still breeds beautiful Danes.

After raising our 5 children and being frontline health care professionals for many years we knew we had a knack for making living things thrive.

We then had the good fortune of discovering the best kept secret in the canine world: Whippets.

Our dogs have exemplary AKC champion bloodlines with Westminster Best of Breed winners in their pedigree, but we believe that good genetics and awards are not an end, they're just the beginning.

Our pups are extensively socialized. They each receive daily handling and attention from the day of their birth. They are born in and stay in the room adjacent to our bedroom, and when they are old enough, weather permitting, they romp and play in our huge fenced yard and garden.

We both come from large families and have lots of neighbors so our dogs interact from an early age with lots of adults, a veritable armada of children, two miniature rat terriers, and our Amazon Parrot who struts on the floor like a field marshal.

Everyone, it seems, "breeds for temperament" and it is unquestionably every dog's single most important quality.

What does it mean?
It is your dog's personality and the attributes you want are the same that you look for in a spouse: loving but not suffocating, trustworthy, elegant, beautiful/handsome, fun-loving, and a great companion.

Someone you love coming home to, and that is always and forever our primary objective. But all this is still not the end, its just the middle.

You also want a dog whose athleticism can fill your heart with the sheer joy of being alive, who could put the most graceful prima ballerina or the fastest NFL wide receiver to shame.

The end comes when after 15 incredible years of companionship, your dog dies and you shed a tear on his grave and say "that was the best dog I ever had". THIS is the goal. THIS is what our dogs are about. If this is what you're looking for give us a holler.

Longrun Whippets

by Sally Long
(Dow, Illinois, USA)

Contented Mama with beautiful two-day-old puppies.

Contented Mama with beautiful two-day-old puppies.

We are a hobby "kennel" in rural Illinois, USA. Our "kennel" is our house, as our whippets are all house pets first, competitors second.

We participate in AKC and IABCA dog shows, WRA and NOTRA racing, and occasionally ASFA lure coursing with our whippets.

We strive for the ideal multi-purpose whippet: an elegant, athletic, healthy hound, with a wonderful temperament, and that keen desire to chase that the breed was created for.

Whippets come in many colors and marking combinations, and we love them all. We have whippets in a range of markings from almost all white to almost all black or red brindle.

Whippets are delightful companions, very social dogs that are even better in groups of two or more.

We adore our little whipper-snappers!
Interested in a whippet? We have a new litter, whelped September 10, 2009. Serious inquiries welcome. Of course, we always welcome general whippet questions from those seeking to learn about our favorite breed.

Please explore our web site, which contains many photos, a lot of information, and links to more, as well as our contact info:

I have a small whippet kennel in Northern Ca.

My breeding program is focused on temperament first than keenness and speed.

All my pups are raised with my grand kids, they quickly learn to be squeezed, tugged on or that dropping is a fact of life....in return a kiss is forth coming.

When Pippa isn't loving on kids she loves to go to race practice.

SaeSi's The Ultimate Sin

SaeSi's The Ultimate Sin

I added my first whippet to my family's life in 1993, added his sister just a few months later and a third just a few months after that.

I currently attend dog events including AKC & UKC shows, WRA/NOTRA/NAWRA racing. I am a member of The American Whippet Club and am a founding member and officer of Midwest Whippet Racing Association.

I consider myself blessed to have dogs across the country and a few outside the country enriching other families' lives, several of them have gone on to become titled either in the ring, field, or track.

I also have Chinese Cresteds and compete in the ring with them. I collect books and magazines on both breeds, and spend most of my 'spare' time studying pedigrees.

Additionally, I published the Whippet Watch magazine from 1999 til 2009 and very much enjoyed learning even more while using my training and education to produce a very well-read international publication.

Cherche' Whippets

by Chris Durance- Watkins
(Hull, GA)


Cherche' Whippets are located on five acres approximately 60 miles northeast of Atlanta, GA.

Our dogs are first and foremost members of our family and live as house companions.
My husband, David and I currently live with 5 Whippets and 1 Chihuahua.

We are considered a hobby breeder and focus on breeding dogs for ourselves to show and run.
Because our whippets are members of our family health testing and sound temperaments are top priorities for us.
Health tests include Cardiac, eyes Cerfed and have been Bear (hearing) tested.

My mother, Glenda, started Cherche' in 1984 as a hobby for my 4-H school project.
She is no longer as active in shows and field trials but is always there for our support. We value her experience and knowledge of the breed. Since 1994, I have shared my passion for whippets and breeding with my best friend, Crystal McNulty of Hycks Hollow Whippets in Illinois.

Most of our dogs are dual purpose . . . from conformation to field we enjoy every venue! Over the years we have owned and/or bred numerous National, Regional and Independent Specialty Best in Show winners, and several Top 20 conformation ranked dogs, as well as a select number of Top 20 Lure Coursing whippets.

We breed a litter about every 2-3 yrs. We expect any family that takes home one of our 4 legged children to stay in touch with us through out the dogs life. We are responsible for bringing these guys into this world and we would like to keep track of them through out their life.

Eclipse is a small breeding/show kennel of quality Whippets in Lehighton, PA USA. We usually have 1-2 litters a year, and although we breed for show quality Whippets, we do sell lots of quality puppies into companion/pet homes.

We keep anywhere from 8-15 adults at any given time. Our puppies are home raised until they are about 8 weeks old, when they then move out into the kennel to get used to being around other Whippets and noises. Here they also learn to use a doggie door.

Timbreblue

Orion & Wegman from our 2009 litter

Orion & Wegman from our 2009 litter

We are a small kennel in southwestern Virginia. Our whippets are all housepets and spend their days on the sofa, running outside, and following us around hoping we'll drop some food! In breeding, our emphasis is on temperament and health, in the belief that to be a happy dog, a whippet must be a good pet. After that, we breed for soundness and "type," those qualities that make a whippet look and act like a whippet.

Our puppies are raised underfoot in the former guest room -- now puppy room -- and we stay in touch with their owners throughout their lives. The Timbreblue "family" is a close one, with everyone posting news and stories to our email list and getting together every year in Virginia for a reunion. Every puppy we breed is equally important to us, whether he goes to a show home or simply enjoys his life as a pet. Our whippets are precious to us and we are proud to share this lovely breed with others who will cherish it.
