Your dog should be fed a nutrient-dense, great quality dog food that is either professionally produced or created by you with your veterinarian's permission. Any diet should be tailored to their age.

History of the Whippet Breed

Throughout history there've been dogs which resembled Whippets. Greyhound-esque dogs appear often in art and sculpture through the ages. They were not commonly known as Whippets until the middle of the 19th century, when the present notion of "pure breeds" was created.

Early descendants of the Whippet were instructed to hunt hares in the open field, when a dog's speed and ability to seize its prey, rather than tracking or following a smell, were the most important factors.

In 1888, the American Kennel Club recognized the very first Whippet. Racing proved a wonderful outlet for the breed's demand for speed.
