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 
 the 2010 AKC National Lure Coursing Champion.  Spirit, however, surprised me and was not only successful on the field but has been extremely successful in the ring!  She was "Best Performance Dog" at our 2010 AWC National Specialty and earned her Dual Championship title in June of 2011.  Then, she topped that and was awarded the 3rd Award of Merit at our 2012 AWC National Specialty!  As our second Foundation Bitch, we are very excited about her potential to provide us with some wonderful puppies.
    Our last addition (Mystic) came to us from Velocity Whippets.  As Mike was feeling left out, 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 earned 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 official start to "Cali Whippets" began!  In August of 2011, Morgan provided us with our first litter.  The "Blonde" litter.  At this time, 1 of these beautiful puppies still remain at Cali Whippets.

Blondie may be a little girl, but she is all attitude. We are excited to have puppies from her this coming year!  
    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. 
14 weeks old - Me with Elsa and Hendrix
 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!
