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

      Just got this stunning little bitch, nearly 12 months old, Deerhound x Bedie grey.
      I used to go out with my dad's Lurchers when I was a kid but I'm a female in my 30's now and struggling to get back into the swing of things.
      I'd love to have this girl knocking down bunnies but I just don't know where to start, I've barely seen a rabbit or and other quarry since I moved here.
      Any of you experts in my area fancy giving me some advice/practical experience (hunting related only)

      Some of you may remember back in March 21 I had my bitch spayed and a lump removed from her teats.
      Another lump has formed and after having a biopsy the result is that it's deffo cancer. 😢 
      Vet says we're looking at about a grand to treat/remove it with no guarantee of success.
      She will be 12 in about 6 weeks.
      I'm monitoring the size and if it's growing quickly it's gonna be a PTS scenario but I'm of the mind to see how she goes over the summer and let her get some sun on her back and then PTS, obviously if she's feeling it I'll do the deed sooner.
      f***ing dogs eh?
      Cheers, D.

      What do folk use for keeping their dogs at the height of cleanliness? 
      Mostly talking about ears here, the amount of gunk that seems to build up resulting in all night head shaking is phenomenal. 
      How cropped are you keeping nails? Best tooth and gum care?
      Seems not to be a topic but I know everybody is keeping their dogs in top condition

      My mate who i do a bit of ratting with is looking for a Whippet or Whippety Lurcher pup.
      Idealy he's looking for a small, fast dog that is tough enough to rat alongside terriers, ferret and lamp with.
      A full whippet would be great but one with plenty of poke and will get stuck in to the rough and tumble of ditch side ratting days on freezing open land.
      There's no rush but if anyone can point him in the right direction that would be welcome.
      Thanks.

      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.
