Stylist Magazine

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Stylist (Britain’s best new magazine) had a fantastic Christmas Gift Guide for 2010, compiled by Morag Paterson.

After scouring the country for the most stylish, thoughtful and useful Christmas presents around Morag chose Love My Dog as the sole pet product. Needless to say, I was very happy that the new Red Tartan Harris Tweed dog collars made the list. They are available in sizes for all breeds and suitable all year round, but very fitting for Christmas in red!

Get yours in the online shop.

It was Jonathan Ross’ 50th Birthday a couple of weeks ago. His present from screenwriter wife Jane Goldman? An adorable puppy who has been named Professor Snowball.

After seeing so many sweet pictures on Twitter by Jonathan Ross, LoveMyDog creative director Lilly, couldn’t help herself. She designed this personalised gift set for French Bulldog Snowball, as photograped and tweeted by the celebrity chat king himself.

Red Tartan Harris Tweed collection launches

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

Spoil your pooch with brand new Red Tartan Harris Tweed collection from Love My Dog. Featuring a dog collar, dog lead, dog coat, dog blanket and a dog bed the new range is the work of Creative Director Lilly Shahravesh.

The new Red Tartan Harris Tweed Collection from Love My Dog

The Love My Dog Red Tartan Harris Tweed cloth is a new and exclusive tartan design. It’s 100% authentic, and woven in the Hebridean Islands by weavers who have passed their skills down from generation to generation. All items in the new collection are then hand finished in Love My Dog’s London studio.

“When I first learnt about the process of genuine Harris Tweed and what it actually entailed I was amazed. There is a fantastic history and heritage of this cloth and I realised how important it was to support and celebrate this. Its great to respect that process and produce a handmade collection of such a high standard and quality” Lilly Shahravesh, Creative Director of Love My Dog.

Genuine Harris Tweed

Harris Tweed has been described as “the Champagne of fabrics” and is the only fabric in the world governed by its own Act of Parliament. Genuine Harris Tweed must be made from pure virgin wool. This wool is both dyed and spun on the Hebridean Islands, before being hand woven at the home of the weaver.

Today, Harris Tweed is the only hand woven fabric produced in commercial quantities. The yarn production process uses specially blended yarns produced to secret recipes and then warped before being sent to weavers homes to be hand woven by means of skills which have been handed down from generation to generation. The cloth is then returned to the mill to be finished to very high standards and the final stage in the process is examination and certification by the Independent Harris Tweed Authority.

Love My Dog and Harris Tweed

The collar and lead both comprise of sturdy saddlery fittings and the collar is backed with washable suede for your dog’s comfort. For the ultimate luxury, the Red Tartan Harris Tweed bed uses a hollow fibre filling to ensure happy dog dream’s (whilst the cover and inner seperate to make life easy for you when it comes to cleaning).

Hair of the dog

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Based off Brick Lane opposite Spitalfields in London, The Golden Heart is a dog friendly pub that we and our muse Rabbit love. It’s famous for the eccentric landlady and is a favourite hang out for local artists & celebs, so dont be surprised to find Tracy Emin or Kate Moss standing next to you having a pint!

This is a photo of the resident dog who is always dozing away. For some reason there is a corgi cut out behind his bed and he sits outside the Ladies loo. Does anyone know his name? Let us know your ideas by leaving a comment.


If you want to find a dog friendly pub near you, or want to let others know about your favourite local then www.doggiepubs.org.uk is well worth a visit.

Sunday Times Style

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

I had a lovely surprise when I got back from Italy last week after checking out some amazing leather for our new dog collars & leads. A friend informed me that a Love My Dog toy bone had been featured in a Sunday Times Style magazine supplement over the weekend.

Tweed coats for dogs

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Today we are cutting the Thornproof fabric for the tweed coats which are all handmade in the UK. Our tweed fabric is woven in Scotland and originally worn by landowners and shepherds with yarn spun from the wool of the Cheviot sheep. Lilly likes using natural fabrics as they are hard wearing compared to the cheaper man made acrylics as they keep your pets warmer and with fabrics like wool they are even shower proof.
