Solving your Whippet's Wardrobe Woes: The Basics

With so much choice available, choosing what you need for your whippet can be a daunting task. I’ve put together a guide to focus your mind and help you get the Basics that will give you maximum value for money.

With so much choice out there now it can be a daunting task choosing what you need for your whippet.

Maybe your puppy is now an adult and you are ready to invest in some clothes that will last. Maybe you want everything you see online but have a budget.

With this in mind, I’ve put together a guide to focus your mind and help you get the Basics that will give you maximum value for money – we will discuss the Essentials, Luxuries and Don’t Tell my Husband purchases at a later date.

For now, let’s consider the items your whippet will need.

A waterproof coat for wet days

A warm jumper for cold days

A lead and collar for all days!


Choosing by Colour:

You could choose at random, whatever catches your eye, but this is not to be recommended if you want to add, at a later date, other items that will work with these Basics. If you choose a colour theme you can add to this and all the items will work together – I’ve broken this down into 3 groups:

Light

Bright

Monochrome


Light Basics

The Norwich Coat in Olive

The Fleece Jumper in Camel

The Hound print collar and lead set

Light Basics: Norwich Coat in Olive, Fleece Jumper in Camel and Hound Print Collar and Lead Set

Light Basics: Norwich Coat in Olive, Fleece Jumper in Camel and Hound Print Collar and Lead Set

Total cost:
Small - £146.95,
Medium - £156.95,
Large - £170.95

You will have a collar and lead that go with everything, a coat that is practical for most of the year, and a jumper you will come to appreciate when your whippet is chilly even at home!

Alternative Light Basics – coat in Baby Pink and Fleece in Rose, these will look great with the collar and lead.

Bright Basics

The Be Seen Hi Vis coat in Orange

The Fleece Jumper in Orange

The Jaffa Collar and Lead set

Brights Basics: Be Seen Hi Viz Coat in Orange, Fleece Jumper in Orange, Collar and Lead set in Jaffa

Brights Basics: Be Seen Hi Viz Coat in Orange, Fleece Jumper in Orange, Collar and Lead set in Jaffa

This range is a must if you love bright colours, or if you have a hound who is likely to run off into the distance and you want to be sure to be able to see where they are!

The coat is great for country dwellers that might need to walk on lanes without street lights as it has reflective piping that shows up when headlights shine on it.

The leather collar will last if looked after like a pair of your favourite shoes – feed it with leather cleaner and it will build up a lovely patina over the years.

Total cost: Small - £138.95, Medium - £150.95, Large - £159.95

Alternative Bright Basics – coat in Lime Green, Fleece in Yellow, Collar and Lead in Mustard.

Monochrome Basics

The Norwich Coat in Dove Grey

The Fleece Jumper in Black

The Mist Collar and Lead set

Monochrome Basics: Norwich Coat in Dove Grey, Fleece Jumper in Black and Collar and Lead set in Mist

Monochrome Basics: Norwich Coat in Dove Grey, Fleece Jumper in Black and Collar and Lead set in Mist

If you love a palette of greys, black and creams, you will most likely want to dress your dog in these colours too. This range of basic items will be a great base to add to. You can introduce the Charcoal and Light Grey jumpers and a mac in the Dove Grey to give you a summer coat.

Total Cost:  Small - £142.95, Medium - £152.95, Large - £166.95

Alternative Monochrome Basics – Coat in Navy, Fleece in Cream, Collar and Lead in Navy.

Whippets need clothes, they are short haired and lean, they don’t hold heat in their bodies, will feel the cold and likely hate the rain. By investing in any of the Basic ranges, even assuming you use all items just 50% of the year, the cost per wear is around £1 – less than half the cost of a take away coffee!
