  1. Paul Whippet

    Hi, I'm a Whippet owner in East Anglia.

    I've had my Whippet for four and a half years. Prior to that I had a rescued Standard Poodle, who sadly died of cancer. I'm looking forward to sharing experience and advice about keeping Whippets healthy and happy.

    Whippet accused of biting

    I live in the UK in a dog-friendly block of flats with my sweet whippet. We don't have concierge and have been struggling with people entering the building, behaving antisocially and stealing parcels.

    Whippets - girl or boy?

    Hi folks! I'm looking at getting a whippet pup from a KC breeder and I've always wanted a female but now I'm having a wobble! I'm wondering if a male dog might be more inclined to play fetch with a ball. I've had a dog before and the ball was such a great way to get exercise on those occasions...

    Puppy night time toileting query

    Hey! I recently got a whippet puppy. He is 10 and a half weeks old. This is his 5th night with us. Luckily he settles very quickly in his crate and doesn’t whine at night.

    Hi I’m Marc, a new member looking for a small whippet.

    We had two whippets and one has recently died. The remaining bitch is thirteen and not well. A mature small male would make a good companion for her and us.

I took this set of photos because I could predict what he was going to do, so I sat at the end of the long muddy gully, and waited, and sure enough he did...
