about AK Creations

me and my girls

My name is Anja and I run AK Creations which is based in Harwich, Essex and was established in 2007. I have a creative background in reprographics which spanned over two decades, but it was owning my first greyhound, Jagger, which inspired me to start my own business.

Preparing for life as a dog owner, specifically a greyhound (or any other sighthound) owner is an exciting time. I did my research after first falling in love with the look of greyhounds, and soon found that due to their delicate skin and lack of body fat, most greyhounds need a coat to keep warm in cold weather - just like you or I. And well, if you have to have a coat, why not make it a perfectly fitted and super-stylish one? And so, AK Creations was born.

All of the products you see on this website and any that you order are all designed and hand made by myself. I am constantly striving to find the best quality materials and to give the best choice of colours and designs. Aside from the sewing, I also work hard to develop new products - gratefully receiving feedback from my customers to enable me to do this.

As all of the products are made by myself, I can ensure that every item that is sent out has been checked and tested for quality, and if you care to take a look at my facebook page, you will see from the reviews people have been kind enough to leave that customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me. 

When I am not working, I am busy enjoying life by the seaside with my husband, three children, greyhounds Dylan and Moe, and Josey the whippet.

the inspiration and models

Jagger

Jagger 2003 - 2017

I was initially inspired by my first greyhound, Jagger who I adopted in 2006 at the age of two and a half. The snaggla coat was named after Jagger's nickname due to her snaggly tooth. We had the pleasure of watching this beautiful lady grow old, saying goodbye to her at the beginning of 2017 at the grand old age of 13. The most gentle soul and the most beautiful model.

Dylan

Dylan 2005 -

Dylan joined our family as a companion for Jagger in 2007 at just 18 months old and a nervous wreck of a girl. She required a lot of effort at first, but soon grew into the wonderful, loving pet she is today. It is Dylan who has overseen the most changes in our household, two new human babies, the loss of our beloved Jagger and the addition of two new hounds, Moe and Josey.

 

Moe

Moe 2015 -

After we had to say goodbye to Jagger, we were concerned about Dylan who just seemed lost. So, Moe came to join our family in February 2017. Another girl who had never raced, we immediately fell in love with her and bought her home from the kennels the same day as we took Dylan to meet her. She has fitted in perfectly, really respectful of Dylan and is a great deal of fun, giving new life to our old girl.

Josey

Josey 2017 -

Hankering after a whippet for some time, and having had our name down with a couple of whippet rescues for months, we were getting nowhere fast. So, in January 2018 we bit the bullet and did what we said we would never do - get a puppy! We had a shakey start due to Josey needing a life-saving operation only a couple of weeks after joining us, but since recovering, she is great fun and a wonderful addition to our household.
