It’s the middle of September and as silly as it may sound September has always felt like a bit of a new beginning, maybe even more so than January. I know that may sound like a strange thing to say but the days are still warm, the routine of life has started again after the school holidays and the planning for autumn and Christmas has started to creep in.
(She says all of this after she’s sat in traffic for an hour and a half to get to the office when normally it’s only a 20 minute journey… and I don’t even have to do a school run.)
At PG HQ we have been busy cleaning and packing away the dog beds we use for shows; bedding has been washed and packed properly (not just shoved in a bag ready for the next show), field boards are cleaned and stacked away again, and the gazebo is finally stored away. Do you see what I mean by it feels like a fresh start? Planning for next year has already started…
This summer has been so lovely to finally get to some country shows. I remember thinking back in March if any of this would actually happen. Launching just before covid came along and the lockdowns were implemented. After 4 years of research and design it was all a bitter blow but that’s the way of the world, so you just roll with the punches. Showsand events were always planned but we haven’t been able to do anywhere near as many shows as we would have liked. Being able to do anything this summer has been so much fun. Meeting you all and hearing all your feedback is what makes us grow and produce better products that will last you and your fur-babies a lifetime.
There really is nothing better than showing you our dog beds in real life and seeing all the pups try them out. They seem to love to snuggle down on our memory foam mattress after a walk round the show, although we have had someprotesters when it comes time to move on from our stand. We have had the privilege of meeting some of you several times this summer and it’s been lovely to see familiar faces and pups as we move around shows.
Being able to help you discover your new bed that perfectly matches your home is what makes us tick. With 4 designs to choose from each coming in small, medium, and large. We have seen and heard some interesting conversations about the best choice. The colour conversations are the funniest. You can either choose from our range of colours or we can colour match to a colour of your choice. With our two-part water-based paint meaning it’s very low in those horrible smelly VOC’s. We have seen some amazing samples of fabric and wallpaper that we have been able to colour match too. Not only do you get to choose your bed colour but there are 4 fabric choices for your mattress as well. So, it really is your design to perfectly match your home. We just help you along the way.
What would your colour choice be for your dog bed?
Onto Our Plans
As it currently stands with Covid restrictions we don’t have any more events booked in for this year but we can still offer you and your pup a design meeting by prior appointment, so just get in touch! We can show you around each design, work with you on size if you need one of our standard sizes tweaked and go through your colour choice all while you pup try’s out sizes. There’s nothing better than looking, feeling and trying something out for size when it is going to become part of your home.
As we all learn to live with Covid and what that means and brings, all I know is that without you all PG wouldn’t have gotten this far. Please keep sharing us with your friends and family because it really does mean the world to us.
