Known for their friendly and gentle nature, Whippets make excellent companions and are well-suited for both individuals and families. They are generally good with children and get along well with other dogs. Despite their racing background, Whippets are generally laid-back and enjoy a balance of exercise and relaxation.

However, they do appreciate opportunities for occasional bursts of high-speed running in a safe and controlled environment.
