Bruno our shivering whippet inspired us to make a Wool Dog Jumper at the very beginning of Redhound for Dogs and when our knitting machine broke last summer we weren’t sure that we could ever produce our very popular Wool Dog Jumper ever again. After months of researching we finally found a mill in Scotland that could knit our panels for us in the same soft Italian wool that we have always used. Sewn by our expert sewers the Wool Dog Jumper is back and looking better than ever!
The design is a ‘tank top’ style, with no legs, to avoid potential rubbing in a delicate area of the dogs top leg, they come in 3 colours, Aqua, Heather and Rust, in 4 sizes, extra small, small, medium and large.
Extra Small – this is good for Miniture Dachshunds and Italian Greyhounds
Small – Good for most small terrier sized dogs, Bostons, Westies, Borders
Medium – This is the size for small – medium whippets
Large – This will fit large whippets, small pointers, viszlas and lurchers
This is a guide – please do get the tape measure out and check the sizes below: note that the jumper length is designed to fall short of the top of the tail by as much as 10 cms – it is designed to keep your dogs core warm, and needs to be taken into account with boy dogs to avoid soiling of the underside.
This Wool Dog Jumper is ideal for any dog that has short hair and feels the cold. It can be worn out on cold, frosty days, or indoors at night when the temperature drops and your dog might get cold and restless.
Extra Small – Length 36cms, Neck 26 – 30cms, Chest 42 – 46cms
Small – Length 39cms, Neck 34 -40cms, Chest 52 -60cms
Medium – Length 46cms, Neck 34 -38cms, Chest 60 -66cms
Large – Length 53cms, Neck 40 -44cms, Chest 70 -76cms
The Wool Dog Jumper is washable on a wool cycle at 30 degrees and dried flat. Good care will ensure that your jumper stays in shape and will continue to keep your dog warm and cosy for many a winter.
