 From Whelping Box To Finish Line By Gregg Gammie

Are you interested in training your whippet to race or lure course? This article is designed as a guide in the training of a whippet to race or lure course.

Kentfield Whippets training By Merril Woolf

Whippet pups are started on the lure as young as 6 weeks of age. We first tie a plastic baggie to a pole and drag it about for the pups to chase. By time they reach 10 weeks, they are chasing the plastic baggie on a buggy whip at amazing speed for such little guys.
