Who are we?

Hey, I'm Ellie, I’m 25, and 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, later being diagnosed with Joint Hypermobility, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia syndrome and Chronic Fatigue. I’m B12 deficient, experience regular migraines and flare ups of Costochondritis, and experience a day to day battle with all of the symptoms that go along with these conditions. If you want to read a little more about this, you can do so here.

 

I set up a dog daycare business at the age of 18, and at 21, had to close this for health reasons and I took on Happy Hound Accessories full time.⁣ After successfully running HHA for a few years, my mum joined the team so we could keep up with demand and sewing.

I spent the last year, limiting orders to the best I could because I couldn’t physically work any harder. And then it clicked and I realised my mum and I were pushing ourselves too hard to keep up. She also has M.E and has daily battles too. So we came back in January, changing the way we run our business. ⁣

So what changes did we make?

In January 2021, after 6 months of planning, we released our new Ready to Wear collection. This gave us the chance to add our new harness, a product which had been our most popular request over the years. 

We handmake our bandanas and all of our other limited items such as blankets. 

Where do we work?

We both work from home, Newcastle Upon Tyne. After outgrowing

both of our homes, with the help of family, we created our own

garden studio, the new Happy Hound HQ.
