The Working Whippet is devoted to the breeding, training and preparation of the whippet for work in the field. Beginning with an introduction to the breed, its origins, role and importance in the past and today, the book then moves into practical tips on what to look for in a puppy, caring for the puppy, feeding, and worming, as well as early training, teaching skills for the field, working by day and night, care of the working dog, and selecting a stud dog, whelping, and rearing a litter. The Working Whippet contains valuable advice not only for owners of whippets, but also all running dogs.
