As a breeder, I have been blessed to place my whippets into their forever homes, with some amazing people. I am proud to say that I have received a testimonial from each home that a Solomag Whippet has found. I invite you to browse below at some of the testimonials that I have been fortunate enough to receive. I am sincerely humbled by your opinions and I thank each and everyone of you for providing my dogs such an an amazing home....
"It's been about 5 months since I've adopted Dancer from Nichole. What can I say, she's a gem. I think adoption is a fabulous option for a first time dog owner such as myself. It was great because Dancer was already house trained, crate trained,and knew simple commands. She was leash trained which also meant walking her was easy. I didn't have to worry about a dog pulling me or being aggressive towards other dogs. What I found even more helpful was that because Dancer is an older dog, Nichole knew her temperament. This was critical for me as I'm a shift worker and needed to know that Dancer would be okay for a few hours on her own as Whippets can suffer from separation anxiety.
Even if I wasn't a first time dog owner, I would enjoy adopting an older dog again. Being a nurse, and working shifts, I've seen how difficult it is on both the puppy and their human when it comes to house training and other basics. And, to iterate, Dancer is by no means old, she's only 4!
I also liked the fact that I could adopt a dog without a tragic history. Initially, I had looked at rescue dogs but most of them required a lot of behaviour modification or at least, someone to be home majority of the time. That just wasn't feasible for me. Adoption for me was such a wonderful experience because I got to enjoy Dancer right from the start. Nichole trains her dogs beautifully and Dancer took no time at all to adjust to her new routine.
If anyone is considering owning a Whippet from Nichole and the opportunity arises, I would definitely recommend adoption. I know that people love that puppy phase, but be honest, even at 12 years old, don't you still see your dog as a puppy

"Dear Nicole , first and for most I would like to thank you for giving me and my family the opportunity of re-living another love story. Finding a breeder with the same type of life value that we impose ourselves year long , no vaccines , raw food everything based on a cleaner way of living was almost impossible for me in my area. Having Bella for only one week we were greatly surprised to see how fast she integrated with us . It did not take to long to understand she was brought up with a lot of love and care. This we will continue very easily for love is our way of expressing our appreciation . Thank you Again"

"We brought our Sophie home about two weeks ago and are amazed at how well she has settled in. She is learning quickly, full of fun, very loving, eating well, sleeping through the night, and well on her way to being potty trained outdoors (is completely reliable indoors). As first-time dog owners, all of this came as a huge relief, and shock! But we don’t think it’s simply a matter of luck. Nichole gave our puppy the best possible start in life – she is that rare kind of breeder who is always thinking about the long-term wellbeing of her puppies. She keeps them with their mother longer than most, socializes them, provides excellent nutrition (raw meat diet), answers buyers’ questions with the patience of Job, and has proven to be a very intuitive puppy & family matchmaker. As a result, our Sophie is a healthy, happy member of our family and a joy to have around. Thank you Nichole!"

"When I was looking for a breeder, I had a long list of questions and I was going to be picky. Nichole superseded my expectations. She was the breeder who responded to me initially the most quickly and impressed me with having me fill out a questionnaire, which would help her match the puppy to my family's needs & abilities. Initially I thought the family picks out their puppy but I like this method as it makes logical sense. Nichole does a temperament test with each of the puppies and gets to know their personalities so a match for both puppy and family is a success. And I loved receiving the updated pictures of the puppies. They grow so quickly! One of the many things I respect about Nichole is that she genuinely cares for each and every one of these whippets. Not all breeders are like this, as to many it's a way to make money and that's it, i.e., some breeders will give you the puppies at the tender age of 8 weeks when that is too young. I have a much better appreciation about this now. And I don't know where Nichole finds her patience with answering my myriad of questions. Nichole took the time to answer every question I asked and yet she still encouraged me to ask questions, even after I picked up our puppy. Nichole truly will go above and beyond to help! And yes we are so blessed to have Jada, our beautiful, intelligent, intuitive, funny, and very loving whippet daughter as our new family member. She is so sweet and fit into our family instantly!I cannot thank Nichole enough for Jada. I highly recommend Nichole to anyone interested in adopting a whippet from a truly genuine, knowledgeable, and caring breeder."

“I cannot imagine my life without Chase and the excellent experience I had with Nichole and Solomag Whippets. I was so relieved to find out that Chase was raw fed and I wouldn’t have to make that transition with him. Whenever I had a question or just wanted to tell Nichole how amazing Chase is, she is always available to help me with everything I have needed. I felt supported and armed with knowledge when it came to opting out of vaccines as well.
Chase is a beautiful little guy and a treat to have in our home. We constantly get comments from strangers on how handsome he is and how beautiful and shiny his coat is. I attribute this to raw feeding and allowing him to eat the food he was intended to eat.
It is obvious that Nichole cares deeply for every single puppy that leaves her home and it makes me confident that we made the right choice and I hope that she will allow me the pleasure to get another little bundle to love in the near future.
