I love shopping, there’s no doubt about that. But I go gaga when it comes to shopping for our pup Quinley. Especially when the products I’m buying are as stylish and awesome as today’s ‘Out & About’ dog travel collection by UK luxury dog brand Poppy and Rufus. This coordinated collection of stylish and functional dog travel products is perfect for the modern pup, (and owners), on the go.
Established in 2012, Poppy & Rufus was founded by friends Sue Barrett and Louise Zadok, and inspired by their dogs – Poppy the working Cocker Spaniel Poppy and Rufus the Jack Russell/Yorkie/Shi-tzu cross. The brand came to life when the pair found themselves frustrated by the offerings of the UK pet market. Keen to produce a practical dog bed in colors and designs they’d be proud to show off in their homes, Sue and Louise set to work on a dog range offering function, style and mirroring the concept of well-known designers, who had transformed everyday household products such as kitchen utensils into a shopaholic’s delight.
Taking inspiration from the pure, clean elegance of Scandinavian design, the deliberately neutral ‘Out & About’ dog travel collection includes ten practical items to equip your next canine adventure.
Available in a choice of three exclusive contemporary designs “Poppy, Rufus and Leaf”, the hero of the collection is the Maxi Travel Bag. I’m so in LOVE with this bag as it offers plenty of room to store your dog’s ‘everything’ towel, blanket, food, bowls, lead, favorite toy, treats, poop bags, grooming kit, medication and the like. I’m betting you’ll even find space to squeeze in some essentials of your own!
Made in wipe-clean oilcloth fabric with six external pockets, an interior zipped pocket and waterproof drawstring lid, this must-have dog travel bag is a stylish accessory to keep your dog’s travel items separate, organised and at hand. Once you’ve unpacked, the bag neatly flattens for storage, a handy attribute should you find yourselves staying anywhere with close quarters.
Complementing the Maxi Travel Bag is uniquely coordinated line of dog travel products, designed to look great on their own or as a complete set. The range includes the Muffet travel blanket, Sox travel towel, Lola poop bag holder, Beano ball/treat bag, Dixie travel water bowl, Scout travel food bowl and the Hamish food carrier. Also designed with the owner in mind is the Buster welly bag and the Coco dog-walking bag.
Poppy & Rufus also offers an ‘At Home’ collection, bringing their signature style to your dog’s dwellings, dining and beyond. Helping to put an end to clashing colors and random doggy stuff lying around the house, the line includes the Hector dog bed made in finest upholstery grade cotton and cosy Sherpa fleece, Masie toy storage basket and Ted food pouch storage basket, along with the Toto treat jar and Monty luxury dog bowl–an earthenware duo made from Cornish clay.
To top all of this off, If making these amazing products wasn’t enough, the company also supports nationwide charity Support dogs, which is dedicated to improving independence and quality of life for children and adults affected by autism, epilepsy and physical disabilities. It provides, trains and supports special assistance dogs to achieve this.
This makes me love this company even more!
