WHCY was established with pet owners and veterinarians in mind as the source for high quality clothing and accessories.
We are best known for our performance raincoats and jackets featuring waterproof and thermoregulatory fabrics found in clothing worn by mountain climbers, skiers and even originally developed for NASA.Most importantly, WHCY is a favorite in veterinary circles for their T-Piece.
The T-Piece is a garment specially designed as a comfortable and stylish alternative to veterinary cones to help pets heal from skin conditions, wounds or surgery without interfering with daily activities such as sleeping, eating or drinking. Pet parents of breeds known to shed frequently also prefer the T-Piece as it helps minimize pet dander.
The Warm Heart Company was founded by Yachiyo Nishio, an acclaimed “ready to wear” fashion designer. In 1997 she was asked by a close veterinarian friend to develop specially designed clothes that would lessen stress for pet patients during their recovery at the hospital. She devoted herself to creating new comfortable designs for furry friends that would ensure their comfort.
Meanwhile, she applied her skill-sets from her experiences as a ready-to-wear designer, to create dog clothes and accessories by selecting materials based on the specific needs of each breed.
This newly invented pup style is called the "T Piece", based on her concept of designing a "T shirt type of One-piece dress". All of our fashions are "Made in Japan". This ensures that we’re not only channeling cool Japanese style, but also developing high quality items from carefully selected materials, and a production process with strict quality control.
Warm Heart Company has been honored to receive several prestigious awards including the "Good Design Award" in 2004 with our original and unique dog raincoats, the "JKC Tokyo Dog Collection" award in 2010, and several others. Our philosophy is "Always Dogs First", because they’re not just a pet, but our precious family members and friends.
This year 2015, Warm Heart Company(WHCY) was selected by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade & Industry to represent Japan on a global scale as part of their “More Than Project”.
The “More Than Project” is one of Japanese government project “Cool Japan!”, an ongoing initiative that focuses on introducing the world to an in-depth cultural image of Japan that expands traditional pop cultural ideas beyond anime, samurai, sushi and geisha.

When dogs are injured or contract skin diseases, they’re often required to wear a protective cone to prevent them from licking or scratching their wounds. However, wearing a cone places considerable stress on the dog because eating, drinking and even sleeping can be difficult. We developed the T-piece to solve this problem.
Our bestselling T Piece line is supported by not only numerous dog owners, but vets nationwide in Japan, for its reliable functionality in the veterinary world and its cute fashionable style.
