Pet Products & Services Awards 2023

Pet Products & Services Awards 2023 | 7 possible, so compostable packaging and sustainable treats for dogs such as insect treats! We’re trying to look after the planet as much as we can.” As a family-run business, Love Louie has family values at its core with a total care and compassion for every box made and every customer that chooses the service to make a special gift for their pet. The firm also believes in giving back to society too, and has a devotion to raising as much money as possible for animal rescues all over the world. So far, more than £30,000 has been raised for various animal charities which is done by donating 10% of every sale to a charity of the buyer’s choice at the checkout, as well as additional fundraising activities too. Love Louie works closely with many well-known companies and organisations and has built close partnerships. For example, animal rescues both locally and abroad, receive donations and an additional form of income for them by providing boxes to sell onto their supporters, which helps them to continue the incredible work. Plus, Love Louis works with holiday companies too, providing boxes for dogs and their owners to enjoy whilst on vacation. These companies include Canine Cottages, Original Cottages, and “We love seeing all of the photos of pets enjoying their boxes whilst on holiday, really including them as part of the family,” Amy says. The firm also has partnerships with pet insurance companies working closely with them to provide welcome boxes for new and existing renewal customers and recently had promotional boxes at Crufts with its partner, Agria Pet Insurance. “Having our boxes advertised at the biggest dog show in the world was something we will treasure forever and be so proud of.” Despite its incredible success and growth in only five years, there have been challenging times, as with any new start-up, and Amy tells us that throughout the life of the business she has had to adapt with speed and confidence, especially throughout Covid. “We literally developed a new Lockdown box overnight,” she exclaims. “Providing pets and their owners with boxes including products which provided the mental stimulation that they needed to cope with the sudden, and sometimes unsettling, time of having their owners around constantly and the change of routine. Also, to keep them busy and occupied during the many Zoom calls!” The lockdown box was, unsurprisingly, a huge success and is just one of the many things which contributed to Love Louie being awarded Best Pet Care Business 2022 by the England Business Awards where there was tough competition against more than 20,000 other companies. More recently, Love Louie has triumphed once again by being recognised in the Pet Products and Services Awards 2023 and bestowed with the prestigious accolade of Best Bespoke Cat & Dog Subscription Boxes eTailer 2023 – UK. Now, as the future beckons, Amy has further developments for Love Louie including expanding her knowledge and learning about new and exciting products to ensure she stays true to her core family values. “We are so grateful for every order,” she states passionately. “It still gives us butterflies now like it did five years ago! We will continue to strive to be the best we can for the pets and owners of the nation supplying only the best as well as raising as much money as we can to continue to help animal charities.” Contact: Amy Frankcom Company: Love Louie Ltd Web Address:
