What Whippets Need- A Wish list for Whippets

We love buying presents for those pointy faced whippets don’t we? SAny excuse 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:

Blankets!

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.

Beds:

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.

Coats:

These are fabulous- rainproof, breathable, cosy, easy to wash, cute looking – need we say more? We frequently rave about Equafleece to read our review click here.We opt for the dog jumpers (in slim of course).

We also love our Redhound fleeces in really chilly weather. The high necks are super cosy. warm dog coats

For heavy rain we reach for a Blizzard coat. 

Moving at the speed of light, whippets can be accident prone. For recovering hounds, Medical Pet Shirts are a fabulous alternative to the dreaded cone. To read our review please click here.

Martingale Collars:

These wonderfully designed collars are perfect for the long, delicate neck and skin of the hounds. Even better if they look beautiful hey!

We love Silver Peacock‘s gorgeous tweed fabrics (pictured above with Equafleece). Also great in bold and hard wearing fabrics are Finnstown, also sold by Pointy Faces, and Brindle and WhyteBrindle and whyte collar

Entertainment:

Anything chewy and furry is warmly welcomed by our boys. Their antlers 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.

For scent based games see our ideas.

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’ -pamper heaven!

What Whippets Need:

In a nutshell, it appears that our wonderful whippets want to be warm and cosy, exercised and entertained, and pampered! A bit like us humans hey? Happy dogs = happy owners after all! whippet Christmas gifts

Lots of love to all of those beautiful pointy noses out there!
