We created Podgy Paws in 2006.

The inspiration behind the shop was our beloved boxer dogs Gus and Suggs. Gus lived to the grand old age of 15½. The shop was named after Suggs who had ridiculously large paws! Suggs was founder, chief ‘meeter and greeter’ and Managing Director of Podgy Paws. He sadly passed away in June 2014 aged 8. Both Gus and Suggs shall never be forgotten and always in our hearts.  

We welcome dogs into our store and our friendly knowledgeable staff are always on hand and happy to help.  To assist you in choosing the best product suitable for your needs we suggest you bring your dog in to take advantage of our free fitting service.   If you are unable to visit the shop we are more than happy to do mail order.  We list a small selection of our products on our website to give you a flavour of what you can find in store.  Please ring 017687 73737 to place an order. We are resisting doing ‘click and buy’ for two reasons; a) advice is often needed to choose the right size as it’s a tricky business fitting harnesses, coats etc … and b) we like the personal touch and speaking to you – call us old fashioned!

We look forward to seeing you. Peter, Chris, Buddy and everyone at #TeamPodgy!
