Announcement    Welcome!!..Thank you for visiting.

Newest development Patterned Luxe fleece at Joann's Fabrics is being discontinued. I bought up a bunch and I am making coats as I can.. Hope you like my choices.

New COLORS every year as I run out I replace with another. Teals and blues, a red again and some greens !! . I also added in some 200 polar tec which is not as heavy nor DWR however the colors were are more plentiful and wear well. I also have but have not made up a Loden dark moss green all in 200.
Shipping I am doing my best to do 1 week but it can go to 3 during busy season . I just shortened shipping time by 1 week and I am working on getting them out as fast as possible. Its only me myself and I doing all the work.


Sighthound coats here. Many things for sighthounds, kennel leads occasional fancy coats with the main focus on the coats,

Single layer fleece coats are Polar Tec - see here why it is a superior (Patagonia, North face, REI) made in America fleece it has visited Everest probably even flown to the moon because of how amazing it is.They do not need to be double layered- but I could make you one ) for a blizzard. It costs more and will wear better.

Serging. well it is a good sewing technique AND I have one but prefer to pre stitch with a zig zag when needed which is comparable. I do have a serger I use on my double layer coats.

I started making my medium coat patterns for my whippets and have expanded to most sizes fitting and designed for the sight hound type body. Deep chest, long back, tail mostly down and a good tuck up. From large to small.

Regarding patterns well if you find the perfect one Kudos.. however my english style is not a straight back with a tuck and the fleece coats are a completely different pattern that takes into account the breadth across the back . Great fit on average and even some more. My patterns were custom designed by a professional with many measurements and weights. Not absolutely perfect for everyone but really great for most .

My goal is to make functional durable attractive coats that fit well and and are comfortable and dry, warm or cooling. and can go out camping and hiking with your pet.And washable. Designed to last for years if cared for.

I wish to emphasize functional, durable and warm.

I now have one of my first coats I have washed over 15 times and it is holding up just fine. The fancy coats are fun but depending upon the fabrics used washing and durability will be affected.

From a whippet owner.; "I love this coat! I have had whippets in the past and owned many different coats over the years and this is, by far, the best! It is a great quality coat, fits perfectly, and is very well made. I received it two days after I ordered it! This will be my go-to place for whippet coats. Many thanks! "

Now just like people everything is not perfect for every dog . I will alter and work with you if your coat does not fit FOR FREE(within reason and my abilities).

I have been sewing on and off for most of my life from quilts to blankets and in the last 10 years coats. This store is where I get to play with new patterns, fabric and designs and have fun . I also have a larger production store that sets my baseline for quality of sewing.

I am happy to entertain any ideas you may have or different sizes if it is within my scope.

Hound Togs @ home. Custom patterns functional durable and one of the best you can buy.

I own Houndtogs.com - a more mass produced sighthound specialty functional clothing site. I recently sold my business- a vet clinic.. Now I am working to have fun sewing.

Where did I learn how to sew? .. well my mother taught me - owned a fabric store when I was in my teens, She has done some pretty high end quilting- me I love the media and I have learned many little things when working with her. I inherited her fabric store sewing machine (Bernina 830 record) plus bought an industrial machine (Adler) and a serger - Bernina and a home middle level embroidery machine . I can personalize, serge go through bunches of leather but on vacation, I work on what appeals to me and I have a houseful of whippets and patterns for IG to greys. It is a sewing mecca - and via my mother I learned how to make things right take the time to rip it out and get it right, Make it square, do and make binding and a pleathora of stuff starting at single digits of age. My mother was/is very about getting it right, .. I make sure my stuff is wear ready check all seams, sew squarely as best I can .. and I am taking a sewing class form an experienced pattermaker - just to learn how to make it better. If my regular coats cannot be taken out by a dog in my house for a romp in back yard and then get washed and put back on . I am not doing my job. Functional, pretty, and durable.
