Back in November 2013 Whippet Snippets & The Whippet Hotel decided to put a date in the diary to get some Whippety friends together for a beach walk. I think our first walk had around 24 Whippets, now we are averaging over double that. It's a pretty amazing sight to see so many Whippets having so much fun! West Witterings offers beautiful soft sand, and big wide open spaces and the walk usually takes about an hour. The walk is open to all well behaved pointy faces, and we are often joined by honorary hounds from the same family.

Check out this amazing drone video by Sky Exlplorer Tech for a glimpse of what our walks are like: https://vimeo.com/145787102

NEXT WALK Sunday 14th May 2017

Time: 6.15pm

Place: East Head, West Wittering Beach, Chichester, West Sussex. Drive as far as you can go to the end car park.


The beach & National Trust have been in contact with us - they are taking a bit more notice of the walks and are now are classing this as an 'organised event'. Please have a read the following rules so that we are all kept safe & hopefully can carry on our walks here.

  • Hounds on lead until we pass the sticky up posts (groynes) to avoid collisions.
  • Please be on Poop Patrol and pick up after your hound. If you notice someone elses toileting and they havent seen, give them a yell, or even better, pop it in a bag.
  • Please make sure your hound has got an up to date ID tag with your mobile number.
  • Zoomie & Bigger Whippets/Lurchers to lead the group
  • A bit of a gap, and then oldies/puppies/shy Whippets
  • Please ask before feeding Whippets who aren't from your family, despite their pleading gazes.
  • Keep an eye on your whippy - it has happened a few times, it's quite easy to think you have eyes on your hound only to find out it's not yours!
  • The last 5-10 minutes passes a quite boggy section on the left, if you would like to leave with a relatively clean hound, you may want to pop them on lead :)
