Longhaired Whippets, long haired whippets

Welcome to the International Longhaired Whippet Club.

Longhaired Whippets are a delightful, small, coated sighthound. Although closely related, they are a totally separate breed from the more widely known smooth coated Whippets.  

The International Longhaired Whippet Club is the international parent club and registry for Longhaired Whippets. We are dedicated to promoting these enchanting hounds and their incredible versatility. Our club wishes to unite all those interested in participating in performance events, breeding, showing, or simply enjoying or learning more about this extraordinary breed.

Longhaired Whippets are incredibly versatile and enjoy everything from playing ball to lure coursing, agility to tracking, obedience to hiking, nosework to freestyle dance. . . or simply sleeping late, taking leisurely walks, or lounging around. 

Easy to live with, Longhaired Whippets are low maintenance, very affectionate, intelligent, athletic, easy-going, easy to train, and have a wonderful sense of fun  . . . the perfect family dog. 

We invite everyone who is interested to join our LonghairWhippetFriends yahoo group, to join in conversations about Longhaired Whippets, ask questions, share information and accomplishments, look at photos, receive the most up-to-date notices of local events where Longhaired Whippets will be in attendance, etc. The group is open to anyone, and you don't have to own a Longhaired Whippet to join.

You can also follow us on Facebook, and/or join the ILWC Friends Facebook Group.
