The written standard for whippet temperament, something judges and breeders alike have been overlooking. Temperament is something I am very passionate about with my breeding, I will never look past temperament, no matter how good the dog may be in other aspects.
TEMPERAMENT: An ideal companion. Highly adaptable in domestic and sporting surroundings. Gentle, affectionate, even disposition.
Temperament: Amiable, friendly, gentle, but capable of great intensity during sporting pursuits
CHARACTERISTICS An ideal companion. Highly adaptable in domestic and sporting surroundings.
TEMPERAMENT Gentle, affectionate, even disposition.
The Whippet is one of the least aggressive of dogs, both with people and with other dogs. He is gentle and affectionate in the extreme, but will also form a very close relationship with one particular person. He is amenable to discipline and very anxious to please. Whilst all this is true, he should not be at all retiring or shy. He might not be very interested in you, as a stranger, but he most definitely should not be timid, and will, given cause, warn off intruders.
Ashsinhalt Whippets is a kennel based in Adelaide, breeding whippets for function! Although I dabble in dog showing in the warmer months when dog sports are over, I fell in love with the working whippet, the true whippet, a powerful, confident, driven dog, the dog that can excel in anything he puts his mind to, the dog who works with you, not a dog to please you, but a dog who wants to work with you, as a team.
I am dedicated to breeding whippets true to type and functionality, striving to produce whippets back to their original purpose, excelling out in the field!
I am a true Whippet lover through and through, my first dog was a whippet and my last will be one too, I am entirely dedicated to this breed and will always strive to breed the best whippet I can, to be amazing pets and workers for everyone to enjoy.
My whippets come contract free and with full mains registration for all pups solely in the owners name unless agreed otherwise, I believe everyone should be able to enjoy their own whippets.

Before enquiring about our puppies, please be sure to check out the Puppies page, which is kept up to date on all of our current and planned litters.
Please note: working, sporting and active homes take preference!
We breed whippets with high prey drive and energy requirements, although we can have a couple calmer puppies in a litter, these are few an far between. Please ensure you are aware before contacting, thank you.
STOP!! Please read before contacting
We breed WORKING whippets, please acknowledge this before contacting us. We do not breed calm puppies, this does not mean my puppies aren't pets, they certainly are, this just means they are higher energy and prey driven over other whippets in Australia and for the protection of my puppies I will no longer be replying to people after a calm, couch potato dog, as they clearly have not read my website and don't know what they are getting into.
I want to set my puppies up for success in homes that want a crazy, smart, trainable puppy.
