Dogs have fur so they don’t need coats, right? Wrong. In a cold snap, pups often need to layer up. Hayley Whitfield discovered this first-hand when she moved from sunny Sydney to the “polar vortex” of New York. Her mini poodle Rosa needed a warm coat, fast, and Whitfield wanted something that’d last more than one season. She found nothing, so she founded Wolfpack. Whitfield’s label stands out for three key reasons: its high-quality materials (European leathers, soft faux-furs, bespoke Italian hardware), its style that nods to old-world Manhattan, and its long-lasting construction—jackets are waterproof and double-lined for warmth. “Quite frankly, the coats are so incredibly durable, they’re pretty difficult to wreck!” Whitfield says.
Why we love Wolfpack
Whitfield is entirely self-taught, and her determination, smarts, and willingness to create something different has built Wolfpack from the ground up. The pack’s collection now extends to harnesses and leashes designed and made in New York. Rosa is a lucky pup.
