Big Paws Little Paws Pet Emporium was borne from a love of all animals.

A love which developed in my early years with my first pet as a one year old. A jet black Labrador crossed with a German Shepherd, named ‘King” He was a beloved family member who used to sit watch under my bassinet as I slept in the garden on warm sunny days.

Soon followed was a black and white cat, “Twinkles” who managed to play nice even when dressed up in dolls clothes and carried around in my dolls pram.

As I grew so did my love for nature and the environment, with  studies in Biological Science and years of working as a Vet Nurse, Alpaca Farmer and Wildlife Carer.Cassie the guard dog sm 7 wks

Once married, our dog became an Old English Sheepdog, “Cassie” with extreme skin and food allergies. Out of a necessity I started making all natural dog treats which did not only prevent her allergy flare ups, but also helped to ease her condition.

In 2013, we launched  Little Paws Hydrobath Services where I have noticed the increase in similar skin and food allergies in my dog customers. I then created “Cassie’s Choice” all natural dog treats and custom made alpaca wool dog coats. The coats are all natural woven alpaca wool coats, in natural tones (no nasty chemicals) with natural cotton flanellette lining.

I wanted to share these products and related environmentally friendly, quality and unusual products, to bring some happiness to you and your furkid, best mate or furry friend. I hope you enjoy!
