How my idea of Dapper Dogs of Harrogate started: There is nothing quite like this in or around the Harrogate area who stock such fabulous products.
We can offer something a little bit different a complementary free fitting service either at your home or work place. Bringing along a whole wardrobe ensemble for you and your wonderful dog to browse through and have the choice of some amazing dog wear. There may be the odd homemade dog treat on offer too!
We wanted practical, stylish coats and jumpers that fitted the bulldog breeds, the magnificent British Bulldog, mischievous Frenchie or the fabulous pug.
It started with a young British Bulldog pup named Kevin, a French Bulldog named Jeffrey and Beautiful Boo Boo (named after Yogie bears friend, by my son!) a small American Bulldog cross staffie.
We really wanted the dogs to wear eye catching everyday “special” wear whether it was a super soft tartan collar or a comfy harness, warm soft snoods or fabulous bandanas. Amazing fabrics cleverly designed into wonderfully tailored coats, brightly coloured spring jumpers with flair and style.
We decided to do just that and set up a website. I set about finding innovative British Designers with Canine Fashion at the front, who mostly manufacture in the UK.
