Whippet's are bunny dog's anything else they take is a bonus and shouldnt be expected regular imo

From a purely aesthetic view ,if there is a finer sight on God's green earth than a whippet in full flow behind a hare ,then I haven't seen it .

the Whippet Coursing Club must have been wasting their time for 5 decades, should of asked you before they formed   The answer is yes they can and yes they do have enough stamina and no they dont ca

They havent got the stamina for big winter hares...

i dont believe that whippets dont have enough stamina...pound for pound the fastest sighthound, and their chests are deeper than most lurchers used "to catch regular" , for their size, i have no doubt that a whippet will catch hares regular, more than most lurchers,. down to speep, turning ability and a big chest for quick time recovery, in my opinion !

A lot depends on field size , terrain ect , on the right ground the Whippet will regulary catch them , and on the wrong ground they will struggle where a larger sight hound will excel , horses for courses as they say , a Whippet can NEVER BE CLASSED AS A HARE DOG as thats not the purpose off the dog but they will definetly do well fit on the right ground , i think there is more too these speed machines than some give credit !

whippets have fantastic stamina and recovery time, but not the pace of other hounds

      Hello, would just like a few pointers from the more experienced members than me on the best way or their particular methods of breaking terriers to livestock? I have a relative that keeps poultry on an allotment that would let me take my pup through, but he’s 5 months now and like most working bred terriers he’s feisty and excited by fur and feather. I wouldn’t want any nasty mistakes to happen so any advice would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

      I’m looking for some advice as we recently rescued a whippet lurcher mix. She’s extremely friendly and sociable with dogs and people but is constantly biting and grabbing our older dogs legs, ears and neck. He’s s cavachon and doesn’t really care for playing or interacting with other dogs so he rarely snaps or growls at her when she starts. He’ll just stand there looking at us or try to run away. She’s never been aggressive towards him and regularly try’s to protect him if other dogs get rough with him. However she’s constantly biting at him when he starts barking or when’s she too excited. We separate her and tell her no but so far it’s not working and he’s doing little to tell her to stop. My worry is he’s much smaller then her and that she might accidentally hurt him if we weren’t there to stop it. Is this common Lurcher behaviour and any suggestions? Thanks

      Hello there. I have a jack Russell pup coming in the next few weeks when he is ready to leave his mother. He’s from working stock and I am hoping to try him out when he’s ready. I would just like to get some advice or pointers from people on here as to what sort of diet you think is best for working terriers? I Want to keep him in best condition I can, strong and healthy. All comments very much appreciated.

      Hello to all.
      I would like some help with our lurchers coat. Luna is 3 this year, her Mum was a Border Collie x Whippet (merle) her Dad a Whippet x Greyhound (Non-Merle). I think she has the harlequin merle modifier gene, I don't think she is double merle, her Dad was not cryptic as far as we can tell. She has no helth issues eyesight excellent and her hearing is as selective as any lurcher. 
      She is a stunning wee dog, very unique markings, great temperament.
      Any help appreciated.
