Becoming Howl & Growl.
Back in 2015, we had many ideas and dreams from creating a dog friendly café and beyond but we settled on a simple idea to celebrate our first adopted dog (Xena the Pomeranian) with an Instagram account. We loved this community of pet lovers and as we expanded our animal headcount we soon realised what we needed as modern pet owners.
We wanted sophisticated but fun, beautiful but functional and extremely well made products for our pet dogs & cats. We were un-ashamed of wanting something interesting, that looked great in our home and made our lives easier when walking (then two), now three dogs at a time.
We love to share information on amazing locations to exercise and adventure with our dogs, plus publicly applaud the sparse but active dog friendly venues around our town. Thus we began our journey to go bigger, grow our ideas and have an online home.
The story so far….
2017: We launched our first website in 2017 (without e-commerce) and soon after began our first pet friendly guide series.
2018: Hosted our first adoption event.
2019: Launched #THEBIGADOPTUAE and look forward to more ways to support rescues in the future.
Fast forward to July 2019: ‘Howl & Growl’ the UAE’s first e-commerce luxury boutique for dogs & cats and their modern owners.
Plus a re-defined, re-written Pet Guide series, to give a home to useful information and share our exciting plans and collaborations in the pipeline.
What we do
We carefully select beautifully made products. You can choose between hand-stitched fabrics or bridle leather collars & leads, to contemporary or bold designer beds, carriers, even travel beds plus a whole bunch of accessories to make life easier and a bit brighter. We think you are going to love our bandanas and bow ties for cats & dogs. All of our products are made from brands with talented designers, some materials are unique, made to order or limited editions so you can be sure you are choosing something very special. Our digital store embraces a ‘boutique’ style. You will see new, exciting products emerge throughout the year.
Visit our online Dog & Cat Shop any place, any time. Occasionally, we attend and organise pop up events so join our newsletter pack to find the next event dates.
Our pet friendly guides cater to adventure dogs and pampered pooches. Find out about dog friendly events, how to support local rescues or pick up some interesting tips from pet industry experts.
