Elegant, even delicate, in appearance, the Whippet is in fact a robust, fearless hunter, bred for coursing and racing. While they are active and impressively speedy outdoors and can still be used for hunting, Whippets are calm and docile when indoors, relaxed around children, and make affectionate companions. Plenty of daily exercise is needed when the weather is warm, but in colder seasons this thin-skinned dog needs a coat.
