What Whippets Need- A Wish list for Whippets
We love buying presents for those pointy faced whippets don’t we? So, when the festive period arrives we most definitely want to treat them with a little gift (or two, or three…). Here are ideas for what whippets need (and want) as shared by many fellow adoring whippet owners:
Loads of them. The furrier, thicker and cosier the better and in every room, ready to cover those skinny bodies at every opportunity.
Blankets are welcomed by our dogs in most months of the year in the U.K with many owners specifying they be coupled with an open fire/ wood burner for extra warmth.
Where to get blankets:
Lovely blankets can be bought from many home furnishing shops while these (pictured) were from our local Dunelm store.
For a real treat for your pointy check out the beautiful blankets found at Charley Chau. I have my eye on their faux fur blankets.
For those owners not wanting those little bed-hogs with them overnight there are many fabulous dog beds and cosy sacks available, for example, Charley Chau .
Our boys LOVE their memory foam Lounger bed from Ivy and Duke. This bed has been going strong for 4 years now and still looks clean and feels springy and comfortable.
Also getting inside and on top of their more portable Cosy Cave beds.
As previously stated essential whippet kit. We opt for the dog jumpers (in slim of course) and for heavy rain we reach for a Blizzard coat.
These wonderfully designed collars are perfect for the long, delicate neck and skin of the hounds. Even better if they look beautiful hey!
For a big hit try anything chewy and furry. Our boys love their antlers. These continue to be popular time and time again and are available from many local vets, pet shops and online at Pointy Faces.
Balls, floppy fur toys and ropes to run after are all favourites. Kong toys offer a good brain workout too.
Pampering products and treats:
Want a sweet smelling cuddle companion? Look no further than Pointy Faces. They produce scrumptious, organic products for our skinny friends. From their ‘Neem and Lavender Shampoo’ to their ‘Paw and Sore Balms’ these are pamper heaven!
What Whippets Need:
In a nutshell, it appears that our wonderful whippets want to be warm and cosy with a little bit of entertainment and pampering. . Happy dogs = happy owners after all!
Lots of love to all of those beautiful pointy noses out there!
