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 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.
In the run up to Christmas, we will do our utmost to maintain high stocking levels of all our most popular sizes and colours in our range of coats, allowing a fast turnaround of orders, but we do recommend you order early.
Bespoke gifts: The only limit is your imagination, we can create beautiful embroidered bandanas – a rainbow of coloured fabrics, gorgeous threads including metallics, and an array of tassels – all made to fit any size of dog. We can embroider with your dog's name, a special word or phrase, your favourite sport club, anything you like.
Beautiful Coats: If you've spotted a beautiful fleece, a stunning fabric and want a bespoke coat for your hound, we can do this.
Special gifts: We can combine gifts from our range with a carefully selected choice of other gifts – for instance we can create a gift hamper, or fill a stocking with a range of gorgeous treats, toys and accessories. Just tell us your budget and any special considerations, and our elves can get to work. We have a wide range of contacts with many other businesses making beautiful, unusual and very special gifts and we LOVE a challenge.
Free Gift Wrapping: Did you know we can beautifully wrap your gift, free of charge? It will be luxuriously wrapped with a tag written to your instructions, securely packed and posted to an address of your choice. Let us know by adding a note to your shopping cart or PayPal order.
Delivery Address: All items can be posted to another delivery address, if you'd like them sent directly to the recipient. We can also deliver to your work address, if it's easier to receive them this way.

Embroidered and Customised Bandanas and Coats
We offer a unique bespoke service for our customers. We can do all kinds of things for you. The photos above show embroidered bandanas we made for prize winners at Greyhound Rescue Fife's dog show, embroidered bandanas for two blind Red Setters and bandanas in a fabric unique to a rescue.
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. We genuinely enjoy creating special one-offs and are always happy to help.
