Bohem is one of the world’s oldest and most famous name in Whippets. It was established more than 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 expecting puppies during the summer of 2018. If you are interested in a Bohem Whippet, please contact Bo at the "Puppies" page.

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.
