About Us

Togs For Dogs is an English Lake District company, founded over forty years ago by Helen Lister, specialising in making made to measure dog coats.

Every Togs For Dogs coat is individually cut to the measurements you supply for your dog, whatever its breed or shape. We know that certain breeds require warm, waterproof practical dog coats which we manufacture from high quality fabrics that have been tried and tested for their durability.

Helen has had the pleasure of living with Italian Greyhounds and Whippets  for over forty years and, during this time, has designed and developed a complete range of coats, beds, collars and leads specifically for IGs and Whippets.

She specialises in made-to-measure dog coats to ensure the correct fit and has made coats for Dachshunds to Great Danes. Comfort is important for any dog and my range of beds and rugs are designed to compliment the chiquest of interiors whilst providing a warm, luxurious resting place for your pet.

My careful selection of materials and experience in the dog world, allows me to give you a dog product that I am confident will stand the test of time.

Dog owning has been a life long passion for Helen and she has achieved 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. She has also had the honour of winning Crufts Italian Greyhound, Best of Breed, five years in a row (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020) with her home bred brother and sister IGs, Ch Florita Tueletta and Ch Florita Tallento a record no other Italian Greyhound owner holds. Helen has also had the pleasure of judging the breed at Crufts, the World's largest dog show.
