Carlisle Whip-it-Away Mac with Harness Hole


Have you ever been walking your hound and caught out when those clouds you thought would blow over decide to deposit their watery load onto you? You will be all too aware of the attitude and misery your whippet will go through in this situation and it is for these very times that the Carlisle Whip-it-Away Mac has been designed.

Small enough to pack away into the bag provided so that it can be taken along on any walk when the weather looks inclement.

The Carlisle Whip-it-Away Mac is based on our Norfolk and Norwich Coats but has a flap to cover the hole to avoid water getting in.

If your dog does not wear a harness please, please take a look at the Cardiff Whip-it-Away Mac


Product Description

Do you like to go on long walks with your dog? Have you had days when the weather has caught you out, when you are on the wrong side of that 50% chance of a shower! You wish you had packed the whippet’s coat, you thought about it but it was a bit big for your bag or rucksack and decided to take a chance. Result - a wet and very unhappy dog!

The Carlisle Whip-it-Away Mac is here to help ensure that scenario never be repeated. Made from thin water-resistant fabric and lined in waterproof mesh fabric it has a hood that can be pulled over your dog's head securely with elastic and a toggle.
