Travel gear for pets

Friday, March 1st, 2013

“For the more fashion-conscious, this classic-looking pet carrier should hang nicely on your arm. Made from genuine Harris Tweed”

Pop your little pet into one of our luxury dog carriers, exclusive to LoveMyDog. Each one is comfortably lined and lightweight for easy carrying, yet sturdy with Italian leather straps. Smaller dogs love them so much that they often curl up in them and go for a snooze, so they’re a perfect travel bed too. Fashion and function meet in our designer dog carriers!

Here is the gorgeous Dixie who was the first to wear our new Pixley Harris Tweed collection. Pixley is made from Genuine Harris Tweed that is exclusive to LoveMyDog. Lilly’s inspiration behind the Pixley Harris Tweed collection is the Duchess of Devonshire from Chatsworth House.

Located in the beautiful rolling hills of Derbyshire, Chatsworth House is one of England’s finest country estates and also a favourite of Lilly’s. Dixie is a duchess at heart and with the new Pixley collection, now has the aristocratic wardrobe to match!

Introducing the Thornby Collection

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

We know you love your dog. We also know that many of you love tweed. So we imagine that our new Thornby collection will be quite a hit. Especially when it’s woven in Scotland with yarn spun from the wool of the Cheviot sheeps.

The brand new Thornby collection from Love My Dog not only looks fantastic. It is also both Teflon coated and stain resistant (this traditional tweed is backed with soft washable suede). It’s available to purchase now and you can accessorize your pooch with the matching dog lead, blanket, bed and the Thornby designer dog coat which is also available in this tweed cloth.

The entire Thornby Collection can be viewed in our online shop.

Your dog photos

It’s always great to get feedback from our customers but even better when it comes in a card with photos!

Have a look at the gorgeous picture of Charlie Leach who loves his tweed dog coat from Love My Dog.

Charlie is 10 and a half and his Thornproof dog coat helps to keep him nice and cosy. Thanks to Tina for taking the time to send us the card and for her kind words, “Good customer service is so hard to find these days and it was an absolute pleasure in dealing with you”.

If you want your dog to look as smart as Charlie, then have a look at our tweed chic dog products.

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!

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).

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.
