There has long been competition between the high street and luxury brands, not just in the pet industry, but in almost every sector. Do you choose that beautiful Loaf sofa you saw in sumptuous velvet, or go for the cheaper, almost identical sofa you found for a fraction of the price? You know it won’t last half as long or be anywhere near as comfortable, but the look is the same right?
Quality or quantity; that is the question! There are pros and cons for both and I suppose often it can come down to your lifestyle, how you use the item and what your budget is.
At Lords & Labradors our philosophy is to buy fewer, better quality items that we really love and know will last. This is reflected in everything we make and the brands we choose to work with. From the smallest accessories such as cat and dog toys and feeding bowls through to investment pieces such as our signature crate sets and doggy chesterfields, we put every thought into the items we offer. We’d like to think of our brand as a good mix of practicality and style; with a selection of premium quality, investment items together with affordable everyday essentials that your dogs and cats will love.
Premium Pet Brands at Lords & Labradors
We have tried to source all the best pet products we can find; a fusion of beautiful aesthetics with everyday durability. We offer brands such as the eco-friendly Beco pet range, stylish, beautifully made collars from Dogs & Horses and the award winning Catit range for your fussy felines. There is something for every part of your cat’s and dog’s lives: eating, playing, travelling, sleeping; you name it, we’ve thought about it! We really try to source items that are good quality but don’t break the bank; a fusion of durability, good craftsmanship, eyecatching looks and value for money.
Bespoke Pet Accessories at Lords & Labradors
The idea for Lords & Labradors was founded on luxury for Pets. The first Lords & Labradors piece was the doggy Chesterfield sofa and the brand grew from there to include our ever-popular handmade crate cushions and covers. There is a wide selection of “off-the-peg” pieces to choose from, but there is also the option to have something made especially for your furry friend. All of our cushions and crate sets can be made to custom sizes if you already have a crate of your own, we can personalise them with your dog’s name and we can even make something in a fabric of your choice*. We understand how important your pets are and we know that sometimes only the best will do!
There are also custom options when ordering Minkeys Tweed coats: have an especially long bodied dog or a dog with a thicker-than-average girth? Minkeys Tweed make all their coats to order and can make a bespoke size to fit your dog as well as their standard sizes. We also offer, hand-baked to order birthday cakes by Arton & Co. All of Artons treats and cakes are baked fresh from yummy ingredients with no nasty additives. Order a special cake for your pup and choose a special message to be hand written on top.
*If you would like us to make an item in a fabric of your choice, please contact us first to discuss requirements and fabric type suitable for the bespoke order.
