Pedigree research

Whippets are fortunate to have a fabulous online pedigree resource in The Whippet Archives. If you have registration papers or a number for your Whippet, you can add it if you don’t see it listed there already, and enjoy looking up the ancestry and relatives of your Whippet.  

Health information

American Whippet Club members have formed the Whippet Health Foundation, which has information and a searchable database. Add your Whippet to this database and if you experience any unusual health concerns or issues, the WHF encourages you to share your information there.  

There is also a very good and comprehensive informational website put together by fanciers in the UK with some consulting help from Whippet fanciers in the US, called Whippet Health.
