Groom a Whippet properly and safely with this LetFixIt guide. Similar in stature to the Greyhound, the Whippet is a lithe and stately dog. Whippets have a fine, dense coat that is soft to the touch. The coat comes in many colors, including brindle, black, red fawn, tiger-white and slate blue. These can be solid or mixed variations. Whippets are mild-mannered, friendly and unflaggingly loyal to their owners. Give your Whippet a full grooming every 8 to 10 weeks.
