Character: Whippets are affectionate, peaceful, and intelligent dogs that are great with children.
Temperament: This breed is good with children, but they do not like strangers. They cannot suppress the urge to chase anything that moves quickly, so they are should be monitored around the family cat.
Care: The Whippet requires occasional brushing to remove dead hairs. The teeth should be checked often to prevent tartar buildup and the claws must be kept trimmed.
Training: This breed requires variety of activity during training. With the right approach, this dog will respond fairly well, though he may never be perfectly obedient.
