ABOUT THE CLUB

 

Our club was formed in 2007 by Whippet enthusiasts in Queensland, with the aim of raising awareness of this wonderful breed, and in its ability to compete in a variety of dog sports, as well as being a wonderful companion. 

Aims of the Club

We aim to provide our members with support and advice in all aspects of the breed and promote ethical and responsible breeding practices.
