Looking for whippet puppies for sale can be frustrating. This dog breed
has a lot to offer but it was not made popular by famous movies or
books and sometimes it can be difficult to locate whippet breeders near

A dog will be your companion for years to come and spending some time in this search, is a very wise investment.
Meet the Breeder
You'll recognize good breeders by the special light that turns on in their eyes when they speak about their dogs.
Allways visit the facilities and get to know the parents of your puppy. You should be able to see at least the mother.
Ask plenty of questions and be ready to answer many: a responsible breeder will want to make sure that his or her dogs are going to the right home.
Start your search at local dog shows and whippet events.
It will be easier to meet the breeders, compare the different whippet blood lines and make up your mind about the kind of dog your are looking for.
Also do not underestimate the logistics of traveling with a small pup.
Don't Buy from Pet Shops
Reputable breeders do not sell to pet shops.
You won't be able to see the parents of the pup or where he comes from, you'll have less guarantees and you'll probably spend a lot more than buying directly from the breeder.
