Emergency Dog Supplies now available
We have launched an Emergency Dog Supplies Shop to help our customers source essential items for their dogs at a time when some online pet stores are taking a long time to deliver.
The Emergency Dog Supplies Shop includes emergency food for the larder, essential kit for good health and well-being for dogs, treats and boredom busters. It’s not a comprehensive online pet store but it does cover a range of things that we know from experience are essential items for our own gang.
Take a look:
Why are we doing this?
Last weekend, I was worried because an order I had placed two weeks ago still had not been delivered – it still hasn’t been delivered as I write. Trying to find an online grocery delivery at the moment is very challenging so that ruled out all of the major supermarkets so I hit the online pet stores thinking I would just place another order with someone else. And then I discovered that I couldn’t book a delivery slot, would have to wait between 1-2 weeks, or just couldn’t get onto the websites at all. It was all extremely stressful. The previous week I had heard similar stories from our customers and other dog friends.
I am not one to take chances with our doglets so last Sunday evening I rifled through my phone book and started to email contacts at all kinds of dog-related businesses that we shop with as regular consumers. The great thing about having founded and managed a dog bedding company for almost ten years now is that we’ve come to know a lot of people who are involved with dogs.
The response was incredible and by Monday lunchtime Charley Chau had business trade accounts set-up with a number of brilliant dog-related businesses and quick access to supplies – success!
On a personal level, it means we are now able to relax when it comes to making sure our monkeys have everything they need but it also means that we’re in a position to help provide some support to our customers in these surreal and challenging times.
We’re not planning on abandoning designing beautiful dog bedding – this is a service that we’re offering while our customers need help.
Keep well everyone and if you need anything please don’t hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0160 848 8702.
Bests to you, your families and of course your dogs,
Christine & Jenny
We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to:

Thank you all so much!
