When we were putting together our list of items to stock at Roobarb and we knew that we wanted to stock BlossomCo dog collars and leads. 

Bridgnorth where we are based, has hundreds of dog owners and many of them are seen walking their dogs on the terrace outside Roobarb on a daily basis, many of them ask if they can bring their dogs in to the shop whilst shopping, our rule with dogs is they can only come in if they are ‘adorable and cute’ and as all of them are we see many beautiful dogs of all shapes and sizes in our shop, and all are welcome, although you have to watch wagging tails occasionally with the larger ones, but they are all very well behaved.

We knew that many dog owners would love these highly individual collars and leads to make their four-legged member of the family look really special. They make a subtle statement and are designed for everyday life and are a great accessory and necessity. We display them very simply on hooks on the wall below the word WOOF.

BlossomCo is based in Leicestershire where they design and manufacture their handmade dog collars and leads in the UK, using beautiful fabrics with quality fittings. Again this was another one of our reasons for choosing to stock them, we where possible try to support British companies creating and sustaining UK jobs.

The collars and leads come in many designs and colours with a standard size for the leads and three sizes for the collars, small, medium and large. Each collar has a matching lead so your dog can be fully coordinated.

The company had some great news this month, they have been shortlisted for Gift of the Year 2015 by the British Giftware Association. A great achievement and we will of course keep you updated on how they get on later in the year.
