Bohem is one of the world’s oldest, smallest and most successful Whippet kennels. It was established nearly 50 years ago and is responsible for a long line of world-class winners, yet has always been an extremely small operation. Visitors often expect a range of brood bitches and well-filled puppy runs, but the “kennel” now consists of only a couple of dogs at home, a couple of others co-owned with other enthusiasts, and sometimes a visitor staying for a few shows.
Throughout the years, Bohem has remained committed to the same ideal: a happy, healthy Whippet whose classic beauty derives from the long, curvy lines, the strong, well-angulated quarters and the smooth, low, powerful movement. Glamorous colors, attractive heads and showmanship are a bonus.
Showing and breeding has always been strictly a hobby and usually takes a back seat to other dog activities: judging, research, writing and publishing. Although no longer breeding on a regular basis, we are happy to forward inquiries to those who have puppies or stud dogs of Bohem breeding.
While not participating in organized racing or coursing in recent years, many Bohem bred Whippets in other ownerships have earned field titles of various kinds.
