Hunt & Wilson
We all want our pets to be part of the family, but sometimes this means our home can be compromised!
Our range developed from our own experience of looking for products that were both stylish and practical for us and comfortable and long lasting for our dogs. Products that make treating your dog as part of the family so much easier.
Our range of dog beds and accessories are beautifully designed and can be personalised with your pet’s name.
They also all have a practical twist. The dog bed inner cushion for example is waterproof, and the outer cover is machine washable – meaning no more unpleasant smells or trying to push the whole bed in the washing machine!
Because most of our products can be personalised, they also make perfect gifts.
In addition to dog beds and accessories, we also intend to offer a range of amusing sketches of everyday life with your dogs, they are available as prints and we also want to offer portraits of the customers pet.
As animal lovers, we want our animals to be part of the family, living a fulfilled and happy life, but we also want to have a lovely home, with our product range we aim to ensure everyone can live in harmony.
We make choosing special gifts easy too. All our products can be personalised, so perfect for the friend that has everything!
We are targeting consumers who expect the best, have high standards and appreciate excellent service. Choosing Hunt & Wilson will feel like a treat rather than a chore. To achieve this we ensure selection, purchase and delivery of our products is a straight forward and enjoyable experience. Our service aims to be second to none and we add extra touches to orders showing we care and understand the consumer, rather than a faceless online business.
With increasing demands on time, we offer customers a seamless multi channel experience, online purchase option, together with phone and email.
We are also looking for specialist interior and country outlets to stock our products. For items purchased from stock, we have a straight forward checkout and next day delivery service. Where customers want to make use of the option to personalise their purchase, it’s quick and easy to do online. It can, however, be important for customers to be able to easily talk through their purchase and style requirements which is why we are also available on the end of the phone to give advice.
We are focusing currently on dog lovers in the UK, but our brand has been developed to also target the US market whilst also expanding into the equine and feline markets which are closely related.
