Richclass Whippets is a small kennel based in Pontypridd, (near Cardiff) South Wales which are owned plus bred by Dan Richards.


We bought our first whippet in 2008 from John and Vanessa Turnball of the Turnstone Kennel which we named Poppy. Shortly after buying her we bought our second whippet from Kevin and Sue Ellis of the Railfield Kennel which we called Rosie. In 2010 we bred Poppy and had our first litter.

We kept a dog out of this litter who we named Bryn. He became our first show dog after Dan took him to a terrier and lurcher show where he came 1st at 7 months old, this was when the showing bug all took off. We now compete at Championship and Open Show level across the country. So far since starting in 2011, we have had some success and we hope to continue and expand over the years to come.
