Whippet Q&A

Hi, I am thinking of purchasing a dog and was considering a few breads which include a whippet. I have 2 children age 12 and 5 a reasonable size garden and access to a local dog friendly park with plenty of open space. We are looking for a friendly, calm dog at home but with plenty of fun and energy when out and about. (chasing balls, Frisbee etc...) Someone is at home 6 out of 7 days a week with the exception of 1 day where we are both at work and children in school (around 6-7 hours). Would this be a suitable bread for us? Any other advice gratefully received.

Sounds like the perfect breed for you! I have a whippet x kelpie, she looks and behaves more like a pure whippet. She is maternal with my toddlers, loving, affectionate and very easy to train. They love energetic play almost as much as they love snuggles on the couch. I say go for it!
