About Caroline
I started showing whippets in 2014 under the mentorship of Kerrie Kuper of Karasar Kennels. I was able to qualify my first show whippet, GCH Karasar's Minuet for the AKC National Owner Handler Series finals and won breed at the Royal Canin NOHS Championship. I won a Best in Show Owner Handler with her as well. As a Owner Handler, I achieved her Grand Champion. I co-bred my first litter with Kerrie Kuper in November 2015. I finished the AKC Championship on my pick puppy, GCH Karasar's Whirlwind within a year and his Grand Champion shortly after. Along the way, we qualified in the top 5 in the AKC National Owner Handler Series, won a Best in Show NOHS, two Reserve Best in Shows NOHS, and more than 15 Owner Handler Group wins and multiple Hound Group placements. The littermate to that litter is also Major Pointed in AKC with limited showing. GCH Karasar's Whirlwind has produced multiple AKC champions, grand champions and a Best Puppy in Show bitch at her first outing. As a breeder, my first objective is to breed healthy Whippets with great temperaments. My goal is that my Whippets are able to succeed in the show ring, in performance events and as the ultimate family pet.
