The original Zentek sport coat for greyhounds and whippets.They are cut with a narrow body and a curved back section to cover the buttock muscles. The coats sport a deep collar, lined with the temperature regulation material. Stylish, yet practical.This patented coat design will stay in place while doing tracking, agility, lure coursing or just rolling in the grass. Many older dogs sleep in the coat to increase their mobility. Other dogs are comforted by the body wrap design. Custom adjustments available. Ideal for deep chested dogs. Acts as a raincoat, cooling coat in the summer, and a coat for warmth in the winter, thanks to the temperature regulating liner. We think it’s the perfect dog coat.
These coats fit Italian Greyhounds.

Hannah ran agility class for the second time today in her zentek coat. Temp outside was 29C (just over 84F), humid and sunny. Our main agility coordinator attended the class as one of the students. She has seen the heat related issues I have had with Hannah - running to the shade instead of doing her course, refusing jumps, running very slow, etc. She is familiar with the zentek crate pads but had not seen the jackets. Hannah ran 3 short courses, 2 medium length ones, and one full course over the length of an hour. The difference in her response today versus her non-zentek coat days was noted by the agility coordinator. No running to the shade and quitting. She was even pretty quick on her last run which was the full length course. The coordinator commented that Hannah ran much better and when she stuck her hand under the jacket was surprised to note the dog was not hot underneath the coat. She also commented on the front shoulder material and the way the jacket is designed to allow the dog to move freely. Now she too is intrigued by this jacket. Sorry I can't speak to Hannah's actual temperature - she is not a fan of having her temp taken and though I have checked in home practices (and found the jacket to work) I have not been checking when on a full agility course so as to keep her experience and attitude towards competition positive! Have to admit I was skeptical at first but seeing this jacket in action I am getting more and more convinced that it works!
