Are Whippets Skittish?

Are whippet dogs known for being skittish?

ANSWER:

No, I wouldn't say that whippets are skittish.

Some whippets may be shyer or more excitable than others but generally they are not nervous dogs.

Of course, being exposed as puppies to many different situations, people and noises helps any dog to develop a balanced personality.

A well bred whippet that has received a proper socialization as a puppy and an adequate training as an adult will turn into a well adjusted and confident dog.

Timidity

Are whippets timid?

ANSWER:

Sighthounds do not have an extroverted personality, they tend to be more reserved with strangers than other dog breeds.

Some whippets may be more aloof than others but a well socialized whippet is not shy.

Whippets are always very attached to their people but they demonstrate it in a quiet and subtle way that their owners learn to appreciate.

My whippet shivers what should I do ?

ANSWER:

Easy! Get him a coat!

Whippets have very little body fat and hardly any protection from cold weather.

A warm dog winter coat is a must if you live in a cold area.
