Whippets are creatures that love warmth. This is no surprise given that Whippets have short single fur coats and little body fat. During the colder months you’ll find that Whippets often feel the cold… and they don’t like it! With this in mind I’ve curated this collection of suppliers of Whippet sweaters to help your little friend stay warm on colder days.
I’ve curated these sweaters in no particular order, they’re just ones I’ve found that look lovely and offer a little extra cozy comfort for your Whippet.
