WELCOME TO THE HOME OF PALMIK WHIPPETS. THE WEBSITE GIVES INFORMATION ABOUT US, OUR DOGS & THEIR SHOW RECORDS.
All show placing’s, pictures & critiques can be seen for every dog. Click on dogs name & the appropriate link.

We are extremely proud of our successes as we are only a very small select kennel based in the county of Devon UK. All our dogs live in the home as part of the family and are very much loved. Health, conformation, quality and welfare are very important considerations.
Our dogs are regularly health checked to the current KC breed requirements. They are heart auscultation examined (with signed certificate) at the appropriate age by a certified veterinary cardiac specialist. All our whippets are micro-chipped; their DNA is logged with the Animal Health Trust and the Kennel Club data banks for any future tracing of hereditary disease & authenticity.

WE ARE MEMBERS & DEDICATED SUPPORTERS OF THE KENNEL CLUB ASSURED BREEDERS SCHEME,OUR ASSURED BREEDER NUMBER IS 3617137.
The Kennel Club have awarded us the Assured Breeders 'ACCOLLADE of EXCELLENCE'
Being the highest accolade awarded by the KENNEL CLUB it is given exclusively to breeders who have achieved a 'SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO THE BREED' and we are truly proud! We are one of only two UK whippet breeders who have been awarded the accolade to date.

PUPPIES/LITTERS. We only have a litter when we want a puppy to show. Only using a suitable dog to enhance our own stock, ensuring that there are no known health issues, has as low a COI% as possible and will comply with the breed standard. We breed for health; temperament & quality not quantity as our record will more than show from a very limited number of litters. CONTACT US & WE MAY BE ABLE TO HELP.

PUPPY BUYERS Please visit the KENNEL CLUB ‘Puppy Buyers Information’ sections on line & spend some time reading & understanding the reasons behind the need to provide this important information. It is a big commitment to have a puppy which can be both an expensive & emotional mistake.

We are always pleased to give honest open advice and help to anyone who has the best welfare of whippets at heart.

We hope you enjoy browsing our web page. It was last updated February 2017.

HISTORY~MIKE
I had my first whippet in 1967 from Allways breeding & started showing with her. Firstly I had the affix Benhillwood. A few years later I changed this to Palmik.
There have been 8 homebred and shown UK Champions~ Ch Palmik Starsign, Ch Palmik Starry, Ch Palmik High Roller, Ch Palmik Magical Whispers JW, Ch Palmik Starlight Surprise JW, Ch Palmik Live To Tell JW ,Ch Palmik En Vogue JW ShCM & Ch Palmik Strike It Right JW.
Palmik have bred and exported--2 Scandinavian champions~ Fin. Ch Palmik Star Dancer and Swed. Ch Palmik Star Shadow.
Also joining the ‘Palmik team’ & gaining their UK ‘Champion’ titles was our Irish import ‘ROSA’ Ch BARNESMORE RED ROSE AT PALMIK JW. She came to Palmik in 2008 at the age of 6 months, and ‘MAGS‘ now UK & AM CHAMPION MERCI ISLE MAGNOLIA AT PALMIK. She came to us in May 2012 at 14 months & had achieved her 3rd CC after just 12 months with us.
Both of these beautiful bitches have been handled to their UK Champion titles by Yvonne.
I have judged in the UK at championship show level awarding CC’s 16 times and have had the honour of judging bitches at ‘Crufts’ in 1996. Future Championship Show judging appointments are in 2018.
I have also had the pleasure of judging two SKOKLOSTER championship shows in Sweden in 2001 and ‘The Whippet Club of New South Wales’ Specialty Championship Show in Sydney, Australia in 2010.
I have served on breed club committees in various capacities for over 25 years & served on the Whippet Breed Council for over 10 years. I am an honorary life member of The National Whippet Association.

HISTORY~YVONNE
I have been blessed to have been born into a family of animal lovers and have owned horses from a very early age. During our travels around the Horse Shows my sister and I use to enter the family GSD's into the fun dogs show.
In 1985 I decided to let the horses go and find myself a less expensive hobby. I turned my attention to Obedience and Agility with the GSD's which I enjoyed immensely.
In 1995 I was given my first whippet, a blue bitch, which I showed with some success. She was the perfect introduction to the 'wonderful world of whippets'.
I have spent numerous years on various committees from Horse Shows to Obedience, All Breed and a single breed club where I held the position of treasurer. I am an ‘honorary life’ member of The South West Whippet Club.
I solely campaigned, Ch Barnesmore Red Rose at Palmik JW and our gorgeous American import, Ch/Am Ch Merci Isle Magnolia at Palmik to their UK titles and group placements. I also handled Ch Palmik Strike It Right JW, Ch Palmik En Vogue JW ShCM, Ch Palmik Live To Tell JW, Ch Palmik Starlight Surprise JW and Ch Palmik Magical Whispers JW to their CC & BOB achievements.
Currently I judge at Open Show level and I am on Breed Specialist 'A3' lists for whippets. I have been passed by The UK Kennel Club to award Challenge Certificates. My first CC appointment will be Boston and District Championship Show in January 2018.
To date I have judged at 3 Breed Clubs. I have judged hound breeds many times at Open Show level & have passed all the KC ‘A2’ examination requirements.
Together with Mike we show the Palmik Whippets.
Yvonne
