UK outdoor retailer Mountain Warehouse has teamed up with Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity in the UK, to create a limited edition women’s dog walking jacket specifically designed for dog owners. Mountain Warehouse and Dogs Trust asked their customers and supporters exactly what they look for in a dog walking jacket and, using their feedback, have created the ultimate jacket for walking the dog, whatever the weather!
As well as all the elements that make a jacket weatherproof, such as IsoDry fabric and taped seams, this waterproof and breathable style has a unique feature just for dog walkers; detachable pockets. These can be removed and washed, making them perfect for holding doggy treats and toys. Additional features include a fleece lined hood for chilly winter mornings and a double storm flap with a rain channel for those wet and windy walks.
Mark Neale, Founder of Mountain Warehouse said: “We really wanted to create a functional product that was designed by our customers, for our customers and luckily we were greeted with an abundance of feedback and design requests. While the inclusion of a hot chocolate maker couldn’t be brought to life, we’ve listened to our customers’ needs and the limited edition women’s jacket offers up an array of features dog owners have been waiting for. Being able to partner with our friends at Dogs Trust on this means that not only have we created a useful product, but we also get the chance to support a wonderful charity and help with their amazing work of rescuing and rehoming dogs.”
Adrian Burder, Dogs Trust CEO added: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with Mountain Warehouse to launch this fantastic dog walking jacket that has been designed in aid of Dogs Trust. We’ve all been there at the crack of dawn, or in a huge downpour and to have something that keeps you dry and warm is as vital as the poo bags and treats! As Dogs Trust relies solely on donations from the public, the 10% from sales of the jackets will raise much needed pounds for hounds. On behalf of the 17,000 dogs we care for each year, I’d like to say a huge thank you to Mountain Warehouse and everyone who does their bit by buying a jacket, or two!”
This versatile and functional jacket is available online with free delivery and in selected stores to buy from 21st September 2015 for £69.99 with 10% of the purchase price donated to Dogs Trust to help continue its work throughout its network of 20 rehoming centres across the UK.
