Do you have a whippety question? Enter here your query or keyword.
I have a male desexed 2yr old whippet who goes out to my partners farm and goes out hunting foxes, rabbits and kangaroos.
When he stays in town with me he is very good on the lead and around other dogs but when I take him to the dog park he makes this growling noise when he chases other dogs and it sounds aggressive.
From hunting, is it possible that he would chase and run down smaller dogs at the park? Is there a need to muzzle him?
What a brave whippet, hunting kangaroos!
Probably he sees small dogs as prey and this triggers his hunting instinct.
Personally I don't like dog parks, timid dogs tend to get scared and dominant dogs became difficult to manage.
If you want to take your whippet to the park keep him on leash until he gets to know the other dogs.

I got him last month, he was a rescue from a jack Russell place. They think he is mixed with greyhound or whippet. Thoughts?
