Understanding the Unique Needs of Sighthounds for Outdoor Wear

As a sighthound owner, you're already aware that the distinctive physiognomy of these elegant dogs demands specialised attire, especially when braving the elements. Recognising the essential characteristics of winter coats designed for greyhounds/whippets can transform your pet's outdoor experience from satisfactory to sublime. Our Felton Sighthound Coats are a good all round, stylish winter coat where as our Regna model is suitable for warmer weather. Both feature a zip-covered harness hole. 

Why Specialised whippet/greyhound Coats are Essential

The streamlined physique of a greyhound, while perfect for speed, lacks the natural insulation found in more robust breeds. To compensate, winter coats such as our Vetra Sighthound Coat or Ofira model, tailored for the slim silhouette of your greyhound are indispensable. Drydogs coats not only envelop your pet in cosiness but also provide critical protection against harsh weather, all while reflecting the sleek outline of these swift canines.

Identifying the Right Fit for Your Greyhound's Coat

Attaining the ideal fit for your Sighthound's winter coat is paramount. These elegant hounds range in size, and so do the adjustable coats destined for them. We have created three individual categories for your ease of browsing 

An effective approach is to use a simple measurement guide found on the DryDogs website focussing on the dog's back length to ascertain the perfect size, for a winter coat that is truly fit for greyhounds/ whippets and other sighthounds.

Finding the Perfect Greyhound/Whippet Coat for the British Weather

As an attentive Whippet/greyhound owner, you’re well aware that the ever-changing British climate calls for robust protection for your pet. Seeking out the ideal coat that offers both comfort and defence against the elements is key. Prepare to discover a range of waterproof coats and fleece coats, meticulously designed to combat the UK's unpredictable weather while making no compromises on style.

Waterproof Sighthound Coats:

Top-Notch Fabrics for Greyhound Comfort and Mobility

Quality greyhound coats are designed with top-notch fabrics that address the unique requirements of the breed's slender frame. The attributes of a durable coat combine robust design with the softness needed for their delicate skin, ensuring their full range of movement remains uninhibited.

Features of a Durable and Comfortable Greyhound Coat

When it comes to the wellbeing of your greyhound/whippet, selecting a coat made from materials that offer longevity and cosiness is essential. The ideal textiles are those that are resilient to the elements yet gentle enough to avoid chafing or discomfort. A coat crafted from windproof material paired with a soft fleece lining embodies this blend perfectly, accommodating your pet's need for warmth during brisk walks.

Quality and customisation matter deeply when it comes to the comfort and mobility of your greyhound. Whether you opt for an off-the-peg solution with adjustable features or go the custom route, investment in a well-fitted, comfortable coat is an investment in your pet’s health and happiness. Choose wisely and your greyhound will thank you with boundless energy and enthusiasm, no matter the weather.

Greyhound Coats for All Seasons and Climates

During spring and autumn, lighter fleece jumpers become ideal as they provide sufficient warmth without overwhelming your greyhound. As temperatures drop, insulating layers become indispensable, and that’s when waterproof, fleece-lined coats come into play. These thoughtfully designed coats not only keep the dampness at bay but also ensure a cosy barrier against cold winds that are often part of the British winter.
