What's a Whippet?

This small sighthound is at the same time a perfect companion dog and a passionate hunter.

Discover in our website how it feels to share your life and sofa with these wonderful miniature greyhounds, the fastest couch potatoes on earth.

In our pages you will find all you ever wanted to know about these hounds: how they look, how they behave, how to find rescue organisations, reliable breeders and how to train puppies of this amazing dog breed.

I love to take my dogs with me wherever I can because they are well behaved and very social. They enjoy walking, seeing new places and being around people as much as I do.

They are so graceful and elegant that when I walk with them I often get stopped by strangers who ask me questions about these stunning hounds and want to pet them.

My dogs seem to enjoy the attention, they are happy to be petted and act as consumed ambassadors for the breed.

People ask me questions about this unusual dog breed, about its temperament, attitudes and health and, I must confess, I love to share what I have learned living for many years with these wonderful dogs.

This website will try to answer the questions I am asked during our walks.

In these pages you’ll find a wealth of information about these miniature greyhounds.

Find out about puppies and rescues, learn how to raise and train these lovable dogs, receive free vet advice, enjoy great dog art and photos from our visitors.

If you already have one or many of these little hounds in your life and you would like to share their pictures, don’t be shy, we are waiting for your favorite photos!

Years ago my family and I fell in love with this beautiful dog breed: look at the pictures, read our pages and you will understand why.

Visit our website and, I am sure, just like it happened to us, you too will fall in love with our beautiful whippet dogs!
