The Basics Box: Darks


Co-ordinate your whippets Working Wardrobe by choosing a colour scheme and sticking to it!

With SO much choice out there for whippet clothing it can be overwhelming. One way to overcome this is to choose a colour scheme that you love – whippets suit most colours and aren’t going to complain if you choose the wrong shade of navy – then you can build on it within that range resulting in a co-ordinated wardrobe of key pieces that your dog will get the most wear out of – giving you the best value for money.

Product Description

Let’s face it, we all have more clothes than we need. And so do our dogs. Guilty! Our two have a large range of rainwear, cold daywear, lounging around wear, you get the picture. BUT of late I have questioned how much is in my wardrobe and thus what is in theirs.

When you get a whippet, they have some basic clothing needs. Clothing that will keep them warm and dry in the kind of weather your whippet will give you attitude about if expected to go out naked! By sticking to a colour scheme it will focus your purchasing and you should avoid buying items your whippet doesn't need.

Why choose the Darks?

  • You love the practicality of dark colours
  • A progression from the Darks Puppy Pack
  • Navy and Teal are timeless colours

What’s in the Darks Basics box?

Collar and Lead – a washable hound print collar with matching navy lead – very practical and stylish.

The Norwich coat – Navy is a classic colour and this coat is practical and useful. It can be worn with or without harness. Worn alone on warm wet days or layered up for colder days. It’s washable for those who like to roll or run around in mud – yes, some whippets do!

Fleece Jumper in Teal – the item you will reach for on most days in the autumn and winter. A figure-hugging shape to keep your whippet’s core and neck warm. A jumper they can run around, or lounge around in, a really good all-rounder.

How do you make these pieces work?

The jumper and coat can be worn solo or layered up – covering your whippet from chilly to cold days.

The lead and collar will be worn all year round and if looked after will give the best value in a cost per wear calculation.
