It's Our 2nd Birthday!!
Two years ago, we were nervously putting the finishing touches to our website and preparing to open for our first customers. Since then, it’s been a wonderful two years which has absolutely flown by. Our purple mailing envelopes have travelled all over the world, and our tent has criss-crossed the country at countless shows and events. We love celebrations and particularly like birthdays, so thought we should do something special to mark the occasion. Although the actual date of Milgi Coat's birthday is August 13th, we've designated a fortnight for celebrations, between the 1st- 14th August.
We’ve just taken delivery of some lovely celebration dog cookies from the wonderful Doggy Bags Bakery. These will be going out with coat orders and to some of our special friends over the next couple of weeks. If your dog has ever had their treats, you’ll know how tasty they are. A friend told us her husband had eaten a cheese flavoured one (by accident), and said it was really delicious!
As you know, we have a passion for rescue and the wonderful work they do. So, for every coat order placed between 1st and 14th August, we'll be putting aside £1 and at the end of the fortnight, this will be donated to two of our favourite rescues – Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue and 112 Carlota Galgos. We’ll also be donating some of our special Dreamcoats, both to Sighthound rescues and to those lovely Staffies at Senior Staffy Club.
There will also be some surprises, so keep an eye on our Facebook page.
Welcome to Milgi Coats
We specialise in making beautiful Fleece Coats, Rain 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 and the Westcountry. 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.
