About the Breed
The Whippet is a breed of medium-size. They are a sighthound breed that originated in England, where they descended from greyhounds
Whippets are quiet, intelligent, and not prone to barking, but require regular exercise. They are generally gentle dogs and may be content to spend much of the day resting. The AKC describes them as "quiet and dignified in their owner's living room" and says they make "excellent house dogs."
Their quiet and somewhat sensitive nature means that is particularly important to train them using only positive reinforcement. They will not respond well to harsh reprimands or commands.
Despite being bred for racing, Whippets are couch potatoes. When not running around, they are usually asleep. They are not prone to fighting but have been known to chase small pets. They also have a tendency to get up on furniture. Whippets are touch sensitive, meaning that they tend to jump or overreact when touched unexpectedly
