  1. Choosing a dog coat for your dachshund: custom-fit vs. standard sizing

    Choosing a dog coat for your dachshund: custom-fit vs. standard sizing

    At Barkmatic we don’t believe in standard sizes for dachshund coats, because in real life dachshunds don't come in standard sizes either.  Dachshunds are not simply mini or standard.

They come in all sizes and proportions.  What started as a shopping quest for our own dachshund is now the Barkmatic brand, and our commitment to custom-fit coats as the solution for dachshund outdoor clothing.  Why not try a custom-fit Barkmatic coat for the same price as an off-the-peg dachshund coat from other brands?

    Big walkies - the rise of the sausage dog group walk

    You’ve probably seen that dachshund - or sausage dog - walks are springing up all over the UK.  Or maybe we all just notice them more now that the number of these group walks seems to be reaching critical mass. We had freezing cold fun at our local - and some would say the original - #sausagewalklondon event in Greenwich Park last weekend, when we walked with up to one thousand dachshunds and their humans in the snow.   

    Read on for our mini report on the most recent London walk, and links to a sausage walk near you.
