In this chat I'm joined by Debbi Humphreys from Redhound for Dogs talking about whether Whippets should wear clothes.

Just because our hairy companions are covered in fur doesn’t mean they’re immune from the effects of the changing seasons.

Particularly in our miserable winters, so that’s why I wanted to speak to Whippet mum and Whippet wear guru Debbie Humphreys from Redhound for Dogs. 

Debbie started making clothes for her first Whippet Bruno back in 2003 as he was always shivering, and she vowed to do all she could to keep him warm.

Then, she realised other Whippet owners wanted to do the same for their dogs, so turned her personal mission into a thriving business.

Whether you’ve got a Whippet of your own or are considering bringing one home, this interview is a must and don’t forget to join in National Whippet Day on February 19th.
