4 Key things worth your attention

Reflective Whippet Coa t- Product image

Whippet's have very low body fat

Research shows that dogs can absolutely feel the cold in a similar way to humans. Some dogs will feel the cold more than others and the whippet breed certainly falls into this category. How many times have you witnessed your whippet shivering on cold days? Just like you sometimes get the chills your dog can feel this too. With short fur and low body fat a whippet can find it difficult to retain the body heat they have. This makes it especially important to have a suitable coat for those bad-weather days. 

Your dog can be hard to see in traffic

No matter where you live road traffic is hard to avoid these days. To us humans dealing with traffic is just common sense and something we often don't need to give a second thought to. However your dog doesn't think like us and even the most sensible whippet can be easily distracted by things such as cats or other dogs on the other side of the road. 

Even very well-behaved dogs can lose control if they are extremely excited, and this could be dangerous if you’re near a road. Although training features a lot in teaching your dog how to behave on the street, making them highly visible to the drivers of passing vehicles will reduce the chance of an accident. This is especially true at night when passing cars headlights will illuminate the reflective strips on this jacket.

Your whippet can remain wet after the walk

If you get caught out in a rain shower on a  walk it can often take a long time to dry off when you get home. For you this is quite an easy thing .. you take off  your wet coat and hang it up to dry for a few hours. Unfortunately your dog doesn't have this luxury and can often be cold, wet and uncomfortable for hours. 

Having a quality water resistant coat is a simple solution. You wouldn't go out in the rain without a coat and soon it will be the same for your dog. 

Your whippet requires a specialised coat

Most breed of dogs can be quite comfortable in an off-the-peg dog coat from any pet shop but unfortunately a whippet requires a more specialised coat.

A whippet is a lot different in shape to other dogs for example with its sleek elongated body and curved back. Our coats are made to fit the breed perfectly with a shaped back designed to follow the contours of a whippets back and a waist strap that is designed to be the correct length for the slim belly.

To measure your dog please run a tape measure along the dogs back from the collar to the base of the tail. This length, in inches should be compared to the size below.

If your whippets back measurement falls between two sizes it is always advisable to go for the larger size e.g. 'small (18-21")' and 'large (21-24")' then we recommend going for the larger size which in this case would be the size LARGE.
