Meet Abby and Alba: the dog (and hound) behind our boutique
As you browse through our shop, you might notice a couple of recurring faces. Abby, our Andalusian Hound who was rescued in May 2019 and joined our family in November that year. She puts all of our products through their paces before we list them, and we only ever stock brands that meet her high standards of both style and quality. Alba, her sister is head of customer service and greets visitors to our shop with sniffs and a wagging tail.
As for me, I work closely with dogs of all breeds, sizes, ages and personalities. It's important to me that the products I sell are not just uniquely stylish but also comfortable, practical and made to the highest standard- that's what makes our collection unique!
I'm always happy to hear from my customers, whether you have feedback, a query or want advice about sizing. As well as running the boutique (and running around after Abby) I am a certified Behaviourist with dual qualifications in Nutrition and Behaviour.
Dogs are not just my profession, they are my passion. I'm immensely proud of this collection of products and the small team who helped me create them. I hope you and your dogs love them as much as I do.
Katie, The Dog and Hound Boutique
