A dog walker from Stoke-on-Trent has launched her own online pet business after her previous business was temporarily shut down following lockdown.
The online store now sells environmentally-friendly treats, toys and grooming products for cats and dogs.
The business’ tuck shop treats start at only 39p. All toys are priced below £10, and its most expensive item is the Super Salmon Oil which is £12.
Deliveries over £35 are free, though customers also have the option to collect their order from Ruth’s home.
Ruth told the paper: “I spend a lot of time with animals so I wanted to provide for the animals that I care so much about.
“With the more research I did, my values became really important to me. I wanted to be stocking things that were environmentally-friendly but also really good for the animals.”
She added: “The response has been really positive and I am planning to keep going. After everything that has happened it is nice that something positive has come out of it. It’s been a really hard time and I now feel like I am moving forward.
“Having your own little shop is like one of your dream jobs and it is something I thought I would never do. It was in the back of my mind but I never had the time or thought about it in depth until it came to.”
