Welcome to Milgi Coats
We specialise in making beautiful Fleece House Coats, Walking Out Coats and Bandanas for Greyhounds, Lurchers and Whippets.
Our coats are beautifully made and specially created for Pointies – every size coat we make has been tested by real dogs so you know they will fit. All coats are carefully constructed, lined with cosy cotton flannel and bound to ensure a smart finish that will keep their shape. You won’t find our fabrics being used by other companies – they are carefully selected for quality and to ensure your hound looks stunning.
Because we ourselves own rescue greyhounds, all the coats we make have been designed to be practical and fit the needs of sighthound owners. We also know that sighthounds deserve a touch of luxury – your hound will look and feel special in our garments.
Choose a warm, comfortable fleece housecoat which is ideal for cold winter nights, especially for older hounds. We also sell our gorgeous and eyecatching walking out coats – a smart, lightweight coat, in a range of stunning fabrics. To complete our range, we also sell bandanas, with our unique Velcro fastening.
Every coat we sell is made here in Wales. We use a team of experienced sewing machinists and are proud to be supporting manufacture in the UK. Even our labels are manufactured here in Wales!
You can shop via our secure, easy to use website, by post or visit us at one of our regular appearances at shows and events. We love to meet our customers, both human and hounds! If you can’t get to a show, send us a pic of your hound wearing one of our coats – we love to see them. Comments, feedback and suggestions are always welcome too.
Milgi Coats is also proud to support the essential work of greyhound and other sighthound rescues around the UK. Visit our Rescue Page for more information on adoption, campaigns and how we can help your local rescue.
Bespoke Clothing and Embroidery
We offer a unique bespoke service for our customers. We can do all kinds of things for you. If you want a coat or bandana in a special fabric, please ask (perfect for weddings or to match a special outfit). We can make any of our items in sizes outside the standard range and can alter particular features to suit your dog. We can even provide a special custom embroidery service. In some cases, where a customer has requested an item, and we can see a wider appeal, we’ve added them to our permanent range (such as whippet sized bandanas). We genuinely enjoy creating special one-offs and are always happy to help.

Great British Greyhound Walk
Keep your diary free on 23rd June – this year it's the biggest ever Great British Greyhound Walk. All over the UK, greyhounds will be getting together to show the world what wonderful companions they make.
We'll be taking part in a walk in Wales, near our home, but there are walks all over the UK, and non greyhounds are very welcome also. Take a look at the Great British Greyhound Walk website to find more information and where you can also buy some great merchandise.
