About

Hello! I’m Julie, the human behind Fur Babies dog accessories & bakery.

Confession: I’m obsessed with dogs of all shapes and sizes. Big, small, scruffy or slobbery. I love them all!

My own fur baby is a 32 kg brindle bobtail boxer called Bosun. You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter where I regularly share photos of our adventures together. He occasionaly features in the blog too!

I started Fur Babies as a way to combine my love of dogs with my need for a creative outlet. I’ve always enjoyed making things and studied graphic design at University but my career took a different turn. After 14 years working for the police I took a U-Turn for myself, deciding to start my own business and finally get a dog of my own!

Because I understand that your pet is a valued family member, all my products are handmade with the care and attention they deserve! Custom orders are always welcome – If there is something I can do for you, just ask!

About Paracord Braided Dog Collars

Custom made dog collars for a perfect fit.

Paracord is a strong yet lightweight material available in a wide assortment of colours so if I don’t have what you’re looking for, just ask!

All collars are complemented with a silver charm and with the option to add a personalised, hand stamped name tag, you can create a truly unique design as individual as your dog.

Fur Babies Dog Bakery

Because your fur-baby deserves the best, I only use human grade ingredients for all cakes and treats. I use British meat, organic eggs and nothing mysterious – you will recognise everything on the ingredients list and I am licenced by APHA (animal & plant health agency) to produce pet foods.

For special occasions order a personalised celebration cake, freshly baked especially for your dogs birthday, finished with a delicious organic blackstrap molasses glaze!

Stall exclusives

I love holding stalls at various markets, dog shows and events in and around Bristol & Bath – it gives me a chance to talk directly to my customers, find out what they want and of course, meet their lovely dogs!

I often have limited edition items or stall exclusives available on the day, along with my range of freshly baked dog treats including my most popular Big Bacon Bones!

Check the calendar and follow Fur Babies on social media for upcoming events and keep up to date with new products.
