Our 3 Favourite Coats for Whippets

Our 3 Favourite Coats for Whippets

In the colder, wetter weather, a chilly whippet requires a warm and cosy, often waterproof coat. Here are some of our tried and tested favourite coats for whippets that not only look good but are comfortable for running and have proven to withstand frequent washes after the inevitable rolls in fox poo!


Equafleece dog jumper:

These hard wearing fleeces from Equafleece come in a range of colours and sizes. The online measurement guides are easy to follow and accurate. Warm, rainproof and washable these are a great option, durable and excellent in cold weather.

Blizzard coats:

A really practical but also stylish coat designed to fit whippets perfectly. The Blizzard coat is a Sherpa fleece lined coat with a waterproof outer. Fully washable and very hardwearing. A good choice for wet weather and easy to take on and off. Available in different colours.

Redhound for dogs:

Fleece jumper for whippets. The Redhound jumper will keep your whippet dry in drizzle, light rain or light snow. It isn’t waterproof but the super long necks which can be pulled up over whippet ears will certainly keep them nice and cosy in colder weather. No ‘accidents’ with these as they are cut high on the tummy to avoid getting wee splashed! A variety of colours are available. These fit nicely under a blizzard coat in really cold conditions too.

  • Hi I wonder if you can help with any suggestions please ? I have a Collie X Greyhound X Whippet and struggle to find coats to fit him in the chest and body length

    Thank you

    • Hi Mary,
      Equafleece do various sizes and for various breeds so I would definitely recommend checking their website. blizzard coats also have different sizes depending on the size of your dog too.
      Thanks for visiting us!

  • I am struggling to find warm coat and prefer waterproof for our 9wk old whippet. She does tend to wriggle a bit so the less straps the better. Tried the shop ones but not really the best fit for her.
    At the moment she is only 31cm from shoulders to end so still rather small and cute.
    Any advice would be great as we need one for these cold months.

    • Joan,
      They grow so quickly! I would get a temporary measure and then go for the blizzard coat or an Equafleece when pup gets a bit bigger- they are brilliant and very hard wearing. There is a group on FB group called ‘Whippet recycling coats and accessories’ where you may find something for the growing phase.
