Launch: Poppy & Rufus Stylish Dog Range


I’ve been dying to tell you about Poppy & Rufus ever since I met the brand's founders Sue and Louise at last year’s Discover Dogs but I’ve had to sit tight until such time that their beautifully British dog products were available for your to paw over online. Poppyandrufus.co.uk is now open for business and I strongly recommend you pay them a visit.

First things first let’s talk dogs! Poppy is a working Cocker Spaniel Poppy and Rufus is a Jack Russell, Yorkie and Shi-tzu mix. Their namesake brand was born out of their owners’ (Sue & Louise) frustration in being able to find a functional and stylish dog bed that they didn’t find dull, predictable or kitsch. One thing led to another and their launch collection includes an extensive range of items for you and the dog for use at home and on the go …

Working with textile designer Jenny Lee-Katz, Poppy & Rufus’ collection is based around three designs Poppy, Rufus and Leaf, all of which have a distinct Scandinavian influence. Each style is deliberately neutral and coordinated to blend seamlessly into your home as an individual item or as a complete set. Knowing what a mucky and destructive bunch our doggies can be, careful consideration has also been given to the products’ care, durability and functionality so think washable, wipeable, cosy, comfy, un-chewable and portable.

I’m now the proud owner of a Poppy & Rufus Maxi Travel Bag - a roomy, oilcloth bag, which will hold all Basil’s paraphernalia when we’re on the go or travelling. Thinking back to our Christmas visit to the folks, where all his stuff was piled into numerous bags and scattered across the back of our car and their apartment, I know my house-proud mum will be thrilled to have everything neatly contained and looking stylish when we come to stay. The Maxi bag has a large central compartment with a draw string seal to stop everything falling out (and Basil getting in) and lots of little useful pockets around the edges to store treats, toys, poo bags, first aid kit and so on. With so much storage it’s also great for picnics, gardening, family days out or as a new mum carry all.


Others item from Poppy & Rufus include dog beds, blankets, towels, toy and food storage, bowls and poo bag holders, as well as other useful dog-owning items such as a welly bag to avoid mess in your car or home after a muddy walk. Prices start at as little as £10 through to £115 for their largest bed.

The company strives to use only traditional British craftsmen, businesses and materials of an exceptionally high standard so invest in an item from Poppy & Rufus and you’ll be Buying British. Poppy & Rufus also likes to give back and have pledged their support to the Support Dogs Charity – a national charity dedicated to improving independence and quality of life for children and adults affected by autism, epilepsy and physical disabilities by providing, training and supporting specialist assistance dogs. Just some of the ways they are helping this charity, which receives no government funding, include fundraising, raffles and building awareness for the charity, as well as promising to makes a small donation per sale.
