about us

Welcome to the home of Veredon Whippets, Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

Founded on Hillsdown Bitch lines, our select Whippet kennel has achieved notable sucess in show rings, in the strongest of competition.

We have strived for a consistent "type" with the quality and elegance that is so important in this wonderful breed.

We have bred champion Whippets in United Kingdom and overseas, several CC, Reserve CC & Best Puppy Winners.

Whippets are a way of life at Veredon, and our dogs are very special to us.

All of our dogs live in our home and are very much loved Family members.

Breeder/Owner Russell is a championship show judge of the breed approved to award CC's in the United Kingdom & abroad.

Russell has judged the breed at the top level in The UK, The Netherlands, Germany & Australia and has future over seas judging appointments.

Russell is the Secretary of The Whippet Breed Council & Show Manager of The South Yorkshire Whippet Club.

We have the breed at heart and aim to breed Whippets purely ' fit for function' with happy outgoing temperaments.
