If you opt for a Whippet, you’ll need to make sure they have a good run every day to work off their excess energy. They don’t need frequent exercise, and once they’ve had their runabout, Whippets will spend the rest of the day relaxing. A properly exercised Whippet will be comfortable living in any size home; they even do well in apartments. Without exercise, your Whippet may become bored and destructive. Whippets have very sensitive skin, and their short fur doesn’t protect them from extreme temperatures, so your Whippet will be more comfortable living indoors. Living indoors with you will also reduce the chances of your Whippet developing separation anxiety. Although Whippets get along with most people and other dogs, they are not suited for houses with other animals. They have a strong urge to chase and hunt, and may chase or attack animals such as cats. Your Whippet might get along with cats if raised with one from a young age.
