Q How Can I Measure My Dog?
Make your dog stand and look foward and measure:
Neck -Widest part of the neck
Chest -Widest part of the chest
Back Length- From base of the neck to the beginning part of the tail, along the spine
Weight -Weigh your dog and use all of the measurements from above to choose from the size chart below.
*Choose the clothes size from your dog’s chest measurements and check the volume (weight). Our outfits naturally run bigger than the natural body, so you don’t need to add any extra room, just make sure that your Italian Greyhound is standing straight.
*We specialize mainly for Italian Greyhounds and small sized Whippets. For bigger sized Whippets, please check the items’ availability first.
*For other small sized dog breeds, please contact us first with measurements of your dog and side view photos. Even if the measurements fall in our chart range designed for Italian Greyhounds, the clothes still may not fit due to an Italian Greyhound’s unique body line.
Q How Should I Wash Wool
Hound Around's products are mostly made up of premium wool. All wool naturally repels dirt and stains.
Dry cleaning is highly recommended to ensure product longevity.
For small stains
- For minimal dirt or stains, just gently rub with a wet towel.
-Hand wash in cold water is strongly recommended.
Machine washing may cause the product to shrink and cause wear and tear.
-Do not put in the dryer.
- If you must machine wash use the "delicate cycle" in COLD water only.
-Detergent for wool is recommended.
-Before washing, turn the clothes inside out and put them in a mesh laundry bag.
-Must be washed on its own, and not mixed in with the other laundry items
-After washing, flip the item back to its original state and then gently comb the fur part with your fingers.
-Hang the clothes and dry in room temperature.
NEVER USE THE DRYER WITH THIS PRODUCT. PLEASE ALLOW IT TO AIR DRY.
It takes a little bit more effort than other materials, but if you take care of your wool well, then Hound Around clothes will keep your pooch warm for many winters to come.

Q What are the differences between Premium Wool and Light Weight Wool
-Heavy-weight wool fabric, ideal for winter coats, blankets , and upholstery.
- These fabrics are blended using 82% pure virgin wool and 18% cotton-- this blend makes less wrinkles and has a soft texture.
Light Weight Wool
-Light-weight wool is excellent for apparel, home decor, and other sewing projects.
-Hound Around's light-weight wool is of 100% pure virgin wool.
Q Is 100% wool (pure virgin wool) better than blended wool?
There is not a clear answer to that question.
The quality of the wool depends highly upon on its purpose and its process.
Natural wool fibers are a great source of warmth, but a fabric wool's friction is not as strong as other materials and fabrics.
There are also different types of processing and different ways to produce various textures for fabrics. We cannot say that just because wool is processed that it is of bad or low quality. There are some situations when wool that has been blended with other materials is better than pure or raw wool, because of its durability, cost efficiency, and design.
For example, it is common to see men's outerwear designed with a rougher texture of wool (pure virgin), because it gives it a more rugged image and a sharper style. On the other hand, women's outerwear tends to have more processing involved in their fabrics, in order to generate a more fluid silhouette and a softer texture.
So we can see that there are many reasons why we can't just say that blended wool is better than non-blended wool and vice-versa.
Hound Around always strives to acquire the best quality materials available, and we are always open to hear our customers opinions and suggestions.
