WHAT IS A WHIPPET?
It is one of the nicest dogs of medium size (44-51 cm). It is a loving, affectionate friendly dog who, despite all myths, is able to meet the most requirements for a dog. A whippet is 100% loyal to the owner, it is easy to handle, but demands challenges in everyday life when it is otherwise bored. Like all other guns, a whippet is extremely intelligent, very alert and curious. It originates originally from England and is one of the youngest races at home.
Its origin can be traced approximately 170 years back where it is believed to be used by the workers in the culmination to supplement the diet through its excellent ability to catch wild rabbits. Like all other coins, it’s a sublime hunting dog, its incredible ability to see any movement in nature ensures it’s able to chase for wild where most other dogs would not register. Its highly aerodynamic body structure enables it to shoot at very high speeds (up to 60 km / h), and at the same time, the strong bone build allows the dog to change direction without straining.
A whippet loves to run strongly and even a smaller garden can be used for physical exercise. If it requires exercise, yes, like all other dogs, it should of course move daily but it requires far from “exercise” as a dog of use. The need to run can be done just a few times a week, for example. by taking it to the forest or beach and let it run freely, it must be good enough! What they do not have is to be used for hunting, as a mouth will usually be the sure winner!
