Welcome to Krigare Whippets
We are located in Pakenham, Cardinia Shire
Approximately 1 hour drive from Melbourne, Victoria
We, Sharon & Sandy Sempel
We have been Obedience training & occasionally showing for a very long time
Past Dogs we have handled & raised
Rottweilers, Siberian Huskies also various other furkids over the many years.
In a nut shell we all have been raised around dogs since the time we could walk.
Sandy has been around dogs for the past 60plus years, never a day without a dog by his side. Out rabbiting when he was a kid, always training a dog to do a particular task training herding dogs on the family farm. Always studying the dogs behavior and learning to read & work what his mate is about to do & why. Was a professional dog trainer and behaviorist for more than 30 years and owner operator of both Officer Obedience dog training school and Pakenham dog training school. Though now semiretired he still has a big interest in dogs and dog training.
Me, Sharon, yes I have always had dogs, my 1st dog of course was a Whippet when I was a child, I loved how they were so slender & how they moved chasing the poor old bunnies, catching & bringing them back with the look of "did well, didn't I do well". After a very long time I finally got back into the breed. My main focus is Obedience, I like a challenge, yes the Whippet has been a challenge but we can now show that it can be done.
We trial our dogs in Obedience, Rally Obedience, Endurance we also enter the occasional conformation show
Our philosophy is to "Work with the Dogs ability to get the best out of the Dog"
Now we have our chosen breed "Whippets"
yes we make the Rally Obedience Pocket Cards for Australia, just click on the email at the bottem & drop us a note with your name & address I will send bank details & cost of cards with P&H
Our puppy litters are very few & far between, when we do have a litter they are socialized from day one with the comings & goings around the house, regular outings, mingle with children from a young age,
PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT HAVE ANY PUPS AT THE MOMENT & WILL NOT TILL FURTHER NOTICE
