The Whippet Collection
Is to provide quality coats, beds and accessories, that have been designed specifically to meet the exacting needs of the Whippet, whose primary requisite is comfort and warmth. We design and manufacture many of the items, which cannot be found in pet stores.
Togs For Dogs was founded in the English Lake District by Helen Lister in 1989, after many years of making coats for Italian Greyhounds and Whippets, her own breed of dogs. In December of 2001, Togs for Dogs was renamed and registered as Togs For Dogs.net Ltd, when Paul Senior and Helen Lister became company directors.
Dog owning has been a life long passion for Helen and she has been fortunate in achieving the second highest honour at Crufts in the Toy Group 1998, when her Champion Italian Greyhound (Ch Florita Favolosa) made history for the breed by being the runner up in the Toy Group when she was 9 years of age.
In 2003 she once again was delighted to win Best of Breed at Crufts with (Ch Florita Lisitano) the 19 month old grandson of Ch Florita Favolosa. She truly believes that the least we can do for our canine friends, in return for their loyalty and charm, is to give them the best of health and care.
We know that Whippets need to be kept warm and are not keen on getting wet. We therefore have a wide selection of fabrics for you to build your dog's own bespoke coat. Waterproof fabrics can be lined with faux sheepskin for Winter weight coats and polar fleece lining for Spring/Summer weight coats. Qulited coats with withstand at least an hour in heavy rain and for super warmth can be lined with faux sheepskin or polar fleece for not so much warmth. Older Whippets that really feel the cold will benefit from a Polar Fleece and Faux Sheepskin lined coat, which is soft and ultra warm.
