Whether we have pets to share our lives with or just love the wild birds in our gardens, here are some wonderful shops full of animal inspiration. From the practical and useful (bags to carry poo in!!), to the gorgeous and lovely.
10 shops who love animals as much as you do.
Do you have a chicken obsession? Or maybe just want somewhere handy to hang your dogs lead? Can you relate to “love me love my horse”? If so Angelic Hen are your answer. They make quirky signs, racks and pegs. Not just about animals either. All made by hand in their wonderful sounding location in Monmouth. Take a look at their about us page to see what I mean. I would like to bet you can find something for everyone you know in this shop. I have been shopping with them for years, they are a truly wonderful shop.
This is a lovely shop based in Cornwall. Such a brilliant designer. Caroline Walker sells prints, notebooks, china, fabric and homeware all with lovely animal prints on them. They even sell a lovely range of chalkboards. I love the cow one.
Pet tags don’t need to be boring….according to Hoobynoo. I happen to agree with them. Not convinced then look at their range of pet tags, they are fab! You can even have one with your dogs picture on. Plus they make ones for cats and horses. But if you are not in need of a tag take a look at their pet hoodie. But that is not all. I have just one word to say “unicorn”. This is definitely a shop worth remembering.
They sell quirky prints on fashion and beauty accessories. Definitely stand out designs! They will make you go aaaawwww and smile at the same time. Brilliant for any age. Here is what Catseye say about their products “When you pull your Catseye London accessory from your handbag, work bag or suitcase we want to make you smile!” A pretty good vision if you ask me.
I loved this shop even before I owned a dog. Now that I own a dog I want to buy everything. Sue and Louise (the owners) were disheartened with the dull dog beds that were available so decided to take their passion for inspirational interior decor and create their own range. They are gorgeous (if that is the right word to describe a dog bed?!). They have now added to their range, to include bags, blankets, towels, bowls and storage options. Plus an ingenious welly bag.
I love the name of this shop. They sell mats especially for households with pets. Door mats, feed mats and runners all with a pet related design. They also sell a mat especially for the boot of your car. All the mats are made in Yorkshire and have all been inspired by pet love. They look pretty good to me.
Right lets talk poo! If you own a dog you will have poo bags in every coat pocket (well I seem to anyway). Plus you get used to doing the swinging sack of poo walk. But not if you get one of these. Such a simple but ingenious idea. A bag which you can attach around your wrist or clip to your belt. If you choose the double pocket version you have a place for your phone, keys and money. Then in the other pocket you can put the poo bags (empty or otherwise). Both pockets keep its contents fully contained and safe. Plus the bags are fully washable. And they aren’t just suitable as a dog walking accessory; washbag, nappy bag, dry pouch for at the beach, first aid bag, snack bag (material is food safe), kindle bag, etc. Brilliant idea and lovely designs.
A great shop for everything dog. Every active dog accessory you can think of is in this shop. You name it, they sell it. The shop first came about when the owners bought a back pack for their dog. On their walks in the Scottish countryside they kept getting asked where they bought the back pack. The light bulb moment. K9 Active was created. They now sell a large selection of gear for the active outdoor dog and their owner.
This is a lovely little shop with some very cute gifts. A wide range of animals are featured and there are a good selection of fair trade items too. Plus if you buy with them they will donate a portion of the proceeds to an animal charity, you get to choose the charity you like best at checkout. A lovely idea for a shop and lovely ethics.
Our final shop is a treat for all our canine friends. This shop makes and sells dog treats. All treats are handmade from wholesome and natural ingredients. Alfie & Molly promise the treats are “so delicious and nutritious that your dog will just love them and keep asking for more.” They do sound yummy! Their range includes meat and fish treats, vegetarian and vegan treats, wheat and gluten free treats, grain free and a range of biscuits. The perfect treat for our lovely doggies.
So whether you are a pet owner or an animal lover, there is a shop here for you.
Pet products for both pet owners and pets. Both useful and cute. From independent online shops.
