In one of my first posts I wrote about greyhound and whippet pyjamas and how they can be important for sighthounds during the winter months. Now you have the facts I want to tell you about the best British online retailers where you can buy beautiful, top quality, well-made, individual pieces for your pet. You really are spoiled for choice!
So, based on recommendations and comments from real users on my Facebook groups and social media, here is a list (in no particular order) of the best of British greyhound and whippet pyjamas.
As the website says “AK Creations specialises in beautiful, handmade products, using only the finest materials, for greyhounds, whippets, lurchers and sometimes for their owners too. Each product on this website is lovingly handmade to order by myself – just for you! whether it is a smart and striking outdoor coat, a cosy and comfortable indoor ensemble or a snazzy snood that your hound requires, just send me the measurements and your hound will be living the haute couture dream to the envy of all their doggy friends.”
Anja at AK creations is based in Essex and has been running her business since 2017. A loving owner of greyhounds Jagger, Dylan, Moe and Josey –(you can find out all about them on her Home page) Anja has been dedicating herself to creating quality, stylish and comfortable clothing for greyhounds for many years. All her items are hand-made to measure and her website offers a range of pyjamas, housecoats, jumpers, snoods, fleece coats, waterproof coats and breathable shirts.
The pyjamas come in different styles. The 4-legged style range from small (£35) to extra large (£50) and you can change from a fantastic range of 35 stunning colours. The 2-legged style are available from £25 to £40 depending on size and, again, are available in many different colours. AK Creations also make comfy housecoats, without legs, which are easy to wear and lovely pullovers, available in polar fleece fabric and some with sweatshirt fabric. Again, you can choose from a range of colours and also select your preferred length of collar. One of my favourites from AK Creations is the Teddy Bear jumper, made from a super cosy cuddle fleece fabric. I think my Noodle would think it was heavenly!
