Where to Find the Perfect Pup

Looking for whippet puppies? Tips to find the puppy of your dreams

.





Finding the perfect puppy may require some time, give yourself the luxury of an extensive research until you find exactly what you are looking for.

Investing effort in a careful investigation is a wise move that will later save you regrets, heartaches and ultimately might spare you a huge waste of money and energy.

A sick or unfit puppy can not only be a source of misery but also a considerable financial strain.

We do not breed our dogs and we do not have whippets for sale.

Dog breeding requires appropriate facilities, a suitable lifestyle, financial resources and an immense dedication.

Unfortunately we are a traveling family, we move often and we cannot provide a reasonable environment for whippet breeding.

With our life style I can at most manage two dogs at the time, let alone a litter of puppies.

A good breeder must be able to provide for the unsold or returned puppies, which potentially makes a lot of dogs especially considering that whippet are prolific dogs and litters can easily amount to eleven puppies.

So, to my regret, breeding is out of the question for us, at least at the moment.





Where to Look for Whippet Puppies


Local Shows and Events

If you start looking locally, you won’t have to travel far with a young dog (not always a relaxing experience) and you can always refer to the breeder for advice and tips.

The first place where to start looking for a puppy is at local dog shows and events.

Here you have a chance to speak with breeders, ask questions and make the first enquires about available puppies.

You will also be able to see dogs coming from different blood lines and make up your mind about what kind of dog you are looking for: what conformation, which sex, color and and attitudes will suit you better.

If in your area there are racing and coursing meetings, don’t miss your chance to attend. 

If you have never seen a whippet compete in one of those events, you might be surprised how intense these little hounds became when they are doing what they were bred for.

You may even decide that you want your dog to compete in one of those sports, in which case, if you hope for a successful career for your whippet, you better start looking for a puppy coming from a racing line.



Ads on Local Papers and Internet

You may be able to find whippet puppies this way but do not omit under any circumstances to visit to the breeder. 

Make sure you are dealing with a reputable breeder, who has a vast experience with whippets and has been extensively involved in shows and events.

You must be able to see the facilities, meet the puppies, meet at least the mother (if not also the father) of the pups and discuss your every concern about the puppies.

For your convenience we created a FB page with posting of new litters of whippet puppies.

Scroll down to see more postings. We update it often, so if you don’t see what you are looking for, keep visiting!







Contact the Local Whippet Club

They should be able to give you information and references about whippet breeders and possibly new born litters or available puppies in your area.

Where Not to Look for Whippet Puppies

Do not buy from shops.You won’t be able to see the breeder and find out about the background of the puppy. And probably the pups will be overpriced.


Do not buy from anyone who will ship or drop the puppy at your home without giving you a chance to visit the facilities and see the pup’s parents.


Do not buy from puppy farms. Puppy farms mass produce puppies of many different breeds with little or no regard for the welfare of the animals. Dogs are complex, living creatures and cannot be mass produced.
