Safestix is owned and run by husband and wife team Paul and Helen who live in the countryside with their two Jack Russell Terriers Razzle and Roxy.
The whole idea for the company and the products came to us after Razzle sustained a mouth injury after chasing a wooden stick. It became clear after doing some research that stick injuries are a huge problem causing untold injuries to countless dogs every year, despite the numerous balls, squeaky toys and other dog toys on the market there is nothing to replicate the sticks that dogs love to play with.
Our mission at SafeStix is a simple one: to create a safe alternative to sticks…..superb quality products that represent excellent value for money and toys that your dogs will love.
We consulted with two leading UK veterinarians through the entire design process this is what they have to say:
Chris Laurence MBE QVRM TD BVSc MRCVS
“Dogs love chasing sticks but so many owners are not aware of the terrible damage a stick can cause to a dog if they accidentally run onto it. SafeStix provide an entirely safe alternative that will allow your dog to chase a stick with absolute peace of mind”
Professor Dan Brockman BVSc CVR CSAO Dipl ACVS/ECVS FHEA MRCVS
“This product would seem like the perfect alternative to a piece of wood. It has been carefully designed with no rough ends or edges and is made of material that is tough enough to withstand even my terriers teeth. I think Safestix will be enjoyed by generations of dogs and their owners”
