Barking Bags to feature on Dragons Den

Inspired by young British designers, Barking Bags make walking a dog “easier, safer and more convenient”.

Barking Bags, a pet accessory business based near Milton Keynes, has announced it is about to set foot in the BBC One Dragon’s Den on 27 January.

The brand was created by Debbie Greaves and partner, Rob Angell who were both inspired by the need to find a bag that would carry all the paraphernalia that they needed when they were training and out on a walk with their dog, Maisie.

The retailer describes itself as being founded on ethical principles: embracing new talent by working with university students, supporting other start-up businesses, promoting the use of compostable poo bags, visiting and supporting their current manufacturers in India and championing responsible dog ownership.

Inspired by young British designers, Barking Bags make walking a dog “easier, safer and more convenient”. It recently won the Best New Business at the Pet Industry Federation (PIF) Awards.

The brand said its “fashionable and multifunctional” unisex design allows the wearer the flexibility to use them cross-body or as a bum bag, helping dog walkers to carry everything they need.

Greaves said: “We have a range of high quality, water-resistant, unisex fabrics and also high-end luxury leather bags to choose from, but in response to customer demand, we also produce a vegan-friendly range as well. These allow you to carry all the essentials you need.”
