Welcome to Cali Whippets
We are a small Hobby Breeder located in North Carolina, USA. We will not bred often, a litter every 1-3 years. We believe in quality, not quantity. Our goals are to focus on multipurpose whippets that are not only successful in the show ring and on the lure coursing field, but are also wonderful, healthy pets with outgoing personalities that make a loving part of the family.
Improving the overall health of the Whippet breed is very important to us and we support health testing of all whippets prior to breeding. Health clearances can be seen on the individual dog's page.
Please feel free to contact us at any time. If you are interested in a puppy, I am happy to keep in touch until we have some available.

Our Start ....
Our first 3 whippets (Cali, Tyler and Morgan all came from Ableaim Kennels. Morgan, Tyler's daughter, is my first "show dog" and I am pround to say that, handled only by me, she is now a Grand Champion - Dual Champion!! We are proud to have Morgan as one of our Foundation Bitches and are excited about the puppies she has provided us.
Our next whippet (Spirit) came from a combined effort of Nitro Whippets (Robin and Scott Horner) and TNT Kennels (Donna and Larry Richards). We had hoped that Spirit would have success on the coursing field. Spirit has not let us down, she was the #1 Whippet and #1 Sighthound in 2009 and 2010 for AKC Lure Coursing and was
Our last addition (Mystic) came to us from Velocity Whippets. As Mike was feeling left our, Mystic is Mike's own coursing dog. We all had hopes that she would be a little "pocket rocket" on the coursing filed. So far Mystic has not disappointed Mike, she earnded her Field Championship title in the fall of 2011 and was ranked 10th in the AKC Lure Coursing top 20 for 2011. We look forward to see what she will do in the future.
Finally, the summer of 2011 - the offical start to "Cali Whippets" began! In August of 2011, Morgan provided us with our first litter. The "Blonde" litter. At this time, 3 of these beautiful puppies will remain at Cali Whippets.
Dylan and BLondie all have their own positive traites and I can't wait to see what the future holds for them!
Spirit provided us with our second litter (the Red Heads) on December 4th, 2012. We are very excited about the potential of this litter, 4 handsome boys and 3 beautiful girls. At this point, 5 of these puppies have made it to their new homes and we look forward to hearing updates on them. The remaining 2 puppies, Elsa and Hendrix, will stay her at Cali Whippets. We are very excited about these to pups and can't wait to get them started both on the field and in the show ring!
We thank everyone that has helped us make our start. Without the help of those before us, we would not be here today. We hope to take the positive lessons from everyone and produce the healthiest and most successful whippets we can. However, at the end of the day, these dogs are our companions and best friends and their well-being is what is most important! I hope that I never forget that. We will not breed often, so check back regularly to see what is going on!
