Hi, I'm hoping to get some advice please. We have always wanted a whippet and now we feel we are in a position to get one. But I want to do lots of research first. We have a 3 bed maisonette with a small garden and twins who are 2.5 as well as cats. We live within 5 min walk of large parks, woods and nature reserve and a 10 minute drive to moorland. I'm full time at home. Our twins have always been taught to be respectful to animals and are gentle and kind to our cats, we have a zero tolerance policy on this and they are reliably gentle and have a lovely bond. Basically, would we be mad to introduce a whippet into this environment? We want a dog breed that is a good first time dog, good with children and cats, quite relaxed indoors and generally easy going. From research the whippet fits this. Obviously puppies chew / need training / exercise etc but the temperament of a whippet seems suitable? For example, we wouldn't get a boxer! We would also like to do some showing so are looking for a breeder who shows their dogs successfully. Sorry for this being so long and many thanks to anyone who takes the time to reply!
