About The Whippet Coats

The Whippet Coats was founded by Isy, a Falkirk native with a breadth of experience in the textile manufacturing industry. 

Isy  grew up in Falkirk and pursed a career in textile manufacturing, upon finishing high school she worked as seamstresses in various textile factories for almost two decades. When the commercial sewing industry in Scotland faced decline, Isy  sought out work elsewhere.

Isy’s passion for quality dog clothing came about when she designed and stitched a set of pyjamas for her own dog Willow. It didn’t take long for word to get out and soon Isy had a request from her sister-in-law violet to make a set for her two show dogs. After seeing how much her dogs appreciated the additional warmth in colder weather, Isy’s sister-in-law asked if she could use her sewing skills to design and produce a set of coats to keep her Afghan hounds dry and warm in the Scottish rain. 

With the original two coats the gracing the backs of show dogs and their owner running a popular grooming salon, enquiries came flooding in. Isy opened her online shop and demand was strong from the owners of chilly dogs far and wide. When the time came she took a leap of faith and sold her car to upgrade her sewing machine and increase production to keep up with demand.

With an ever-growing list of orders, rave reviews from customers most importantly lots of cosy dogs, Isy asked Janice to come aboard at The Whippet Coats and put her sewing skills to work. Albeit in a slightly different capacity than in years previous. Now, when you order a coat from The Whippet Coats and submit your dog’s measurements, material is measured, cut and sewn to your dog’s exact requirements by Isy  right here in Scotland. You can even have your dog’s name, or a custom design stitched into the garment to make it extra unique.

The Whippet Coats dog coats incorporate a Double Diamond stitch on the outer layer to increase their durability and resistance to tears. All our products are also Oeko-Tex Certified and machine washable so no matter how muddy your dog gets while out exploring, cleaning up is a breeze.
