Cornwall LivingIssue #136


Make every day a wonderful day for your happy hound with a zip up coat from Slickers Doghouse.

Although Cornwall gets more than its fair share of lovely weather, we do get days when the sun hides its head, the clouds gather and the temperature drops. However, staying in just isn’t an option when you have a dog, as walks are a daily must. Fear not, as we have discovered a range of zip up seasonal coats for dogs from Stix which could be exactly what you and your pooch are looking for!

After little success of finding a dog coat that would tick all the boxes, Stix founders Jo Murray and Desi Heptinstall saw an opportunity to create their own range of high-quality waterproof dog coats that would be functional and user-friendly, while also being stylish. Stix coats are made from Polartec fleece, which is both warm and breathable – perfect for Cornwall’s sometimes unpredictable weather! They have a signature zip for ease of putting on – follow legs, neck, zip and your dog will be cosy and warm in minutes. Taking off is simply the reverse and as they are machine washable and fast-drying, your dog’s Stix coat will be clean and ready in no time for your next canine adventure.

Finding the right size coat is easy, too. Grab a soft tape measure, and perhaps the promise of a treat for standing still, and take the back measurement needed to match up against the comprehensive size chart. Covering more than 25 different breeds, with a range of sizes for each – whether you have a greyhound or a golden retriever, a pug or a pointer – your four-legged friend will be ready for walkies, whatever the weather. 

What’s more, a Stix coat is also kind on the environment. Carbon paw-prints are very important to Stix and so they proudly support sustainable packaging solutions, using only recycled and recyclable materials to package their orders. The Polartec fleece is also made from 90% recycled bottles, making it one of, if not the most environmentally friendly dog-coat on the market! Be sure to check out the range on Slickers’ website or pop into the store to see the quality for yourself.
