Fur Babies is an independent, award winning small business specialising in handmade pet products and freshly baked dog treats. I trade at local markets and events in the Bristol, Bath & surrounding areas, also online via the Fur Babies website.
The majority of products are made by myself, and I was awarded the Twitter 'Queen Of' title for paracord dog collars by Aqua Design Group in February 2018. This was soon followed by being recognised as one the Small Biz 100 of 2018 by Small Business Saturday and the Jacqueline Gold WOW award for Women in Business. In addition to my bespoke collar design service, other items include snuffle mats, toys, bandanas & bowties, all handmade with the care and attention our beloved pets deserve. I try to upcycle fabric and materials wherever possible, creating unique one-off and limited edition items exclusively available on the stall.
From the dog bakery, I produce freshly baked treats and celebration cakes made with human grade ingredients. 'Big Bacon Bones' are a big favourite and are sold as snacks at local dog friendly pubs and cafe's. Peanut butter and banana 'Mutt Muffins' are also a special treat, often drawing comments from human customers as looking 'good enough for me to eat'!
The name 'Fur Babies' reflects the emotional value placed on our pets, which I recognise and understand. It's not about handbag chihuahas or dressing up daschunds (although we do love a doggy bandana!). It's about unconditional love. My own furry family includes Bosun the boxer dog, Smithy the cat and guinea pig brothers Gumball & Darwin. Because I understand that your pet is a valued family member, all products are handmade with the care and attention they deserve!
