Collars From McDawg

One of our latest suppliers is My McDawg, a Scottish designer who provides affordable, good quality, Harris Tweed dog collars from the Outer Hebrides. My Mcdawg combines two passions for designer, Eilidh, “[her] love of animals (especially [her] two cockapoos) and the islands [she] grew up in”, which made Harris Tweed dog collars a perfect choice. We love My McDawg and their amazing products, some of which are shown below. The full range can be found on our website.

To match the quality of the Harris Tweed used,  only the best quality materials including welded D-rings for security, and aluminium clasps which are tested for strength, are used. Moleskin has been chosen for the lining as it offers durability and has a lovely soft velvety feel for comfort.  Webbing is sewn into the middle of the collar for added strength but does not take away from the look of the product.

A Beco Christmas

This week we got an order in from Beco, and a  particularly festive one at that. I’m sure that you will all be as excited as I was to see Beco’s new Christmas releases, and your pets will be even more pleased to receive them.

One of our favourite suppliers.


First, a little bit of background on one of our favourite suppliers. Beco provide pets across the country with eco-friendly pet products that are not only durable but toxin free and made from natural materials such as rice husk as well as recycled bottles. From food dishes to beds Beco cover everything you need to make your pet comfortable and happy, as well as giving you peace of mind regarding your effect on the environment.


Here’s a little look at some of the great (and festive) items that Beco sent us this week. Be sure to head over to the website to pick one up or browse our entire Beco range – just click here!


We got some great Beco Christmas toys for dogs in (waiting for the cat versions to be delivered), and they are absolutely adorable. Our particular favourite has to be the festive themed George the Giraffe  – I think the dogs agree with that one too, George is currently their favourite Beco toy anyway.

Even Stripy likes George the Giraffe…
The festive version of George.


On the topic of toys we also got some Beco flyers in our order, a toy that we have not yet stocked at Philomena London. If your dog is the type to play Frisbee, then this is exactly the toy you need. As always, it’s made from rice husk and contains no toxins so it makes a great alternative to the plastic ones. It flies pretty well too.

Beco flyers in two funky colours.


Also new in are our funky new Beco beds. They are super comfy and come in three spacious sizes, and is also machine washable. Made from recycled bottles they are incredibly durable and comfortable, a definite favourite with Philomena and her brothers. With enough room to stretch out and sleep it is sure to be the best kind of bed for dogs who like a bit of room as well as comfort. It’s the perfect bed for snoozing.

So soft, so comfortable.


We have the Beco cat litter trays in three great colours now as well – blue, pink, and a natural brown, and we have matching scoops to go with them. Made from rice husk and vanilla scented, it’s durable, natural, and biodegradable. My cat loves it because it’s deep and spacious – perfect for digging, and the raised back certainly helps prevent too much litter being kicked out of the tray!

For minimum litter spray.


Are you the kind of pet owner who likes to go on road trips with your furry friends? Or perhaps you have a dog that likes a drink on their walk? Either way, the Beco travel dish is absolutely perfect and exactly what every active dog owner needs. Made from rice husk and with vanilla scenting, this seemingly flat dish pops out to reveal a great bowl for your dog to have a quick drink from. When they are done, you simply pop it back in and it’s ready to go back in your bag or be stored away somewhere else. They’re great, and there’s a size for every dog, from super small to super big. It has been one of our most popular products at trade shows, and now it’s here on the website for you to buy.

One of the best products for the active dog owner.


Thanks for reading our latest update, hopefully you have enjoyed the products we have shown you today. Everything is up and live so make sure you visit our website and have a browse – we have something for everyone!

We’ve been working hard all week to get ready for the show, from constructing and painting shelving units to getting in mounds of new stock, the Philomena London team have been swamped with work and busier than ever  – just the way we like it. Even the dogs have decided to get in on the work, even if their idea of helping isn’t exactly what you would consider to be helpful…

Philomena is quite the little 'helper'...
