About Barks & Squeaks
Meet The Team
I’m Joanna and I run Barks & Squeaks along with my furry team of Directors. Let me introduce us to you…
What do you want to know?
Why I set up Barks & Squeaks?
The simple answer is – I love animals – especially dogs and cats and I became disillusioned with the corporate world. I wanted to work on something that I really cared about and was interested in. I’ve struggled to find interesting gifts for people before when they’ve got a new puppy or kitten or for birthdays and all the other celebrations.
Pets offer us love, loyalty and companionship and they help us stay physically and emotionally healthy. My pets are part of my family and I adore them. And I know I am not alone. I love meeting other ‘pet people’ because they understand that bond we have with our animals and how much joy and comfort they give us.
Our ‘pet-people’ identity is often reflected in our lifestyle; from the accessories, treats and beds we choose for our pets to the style of personal accessories and homeware that we choose for ourselves. Barks & Squeaks is for true ‘pet-people’ and I aim to offer you and your pets the accessories and homewear that are an expression of your lifestyle.
I have created a store for dog and cat people to buy gorgeous gifts for themselves, their pets or where other people can find gifts for them. There are some quite unique items, and I can help you create a unique gift.
Most importantly, I want to shout about the fact that we offer a free shipping option. Barks & Squeaks is delighted to offer FREE 2nd class shipping on all orders over £29. If you want your order a little quicker, you can still choose 1st class postage for a fee.
Barks & Squeaks Original Designs
Barks & Squeaks goodies are carefully selected from well-regarded, high-quality suppliers. I also have my own expanding range of gorgeous Original Designs. They are all designed by me and then carefully manufactured to the highest standards in the UK. 🇬🇧
Most of the range so far features various dog and cat breeds. So far, I have tea-towels, cosmetics bags, notebooks and greetings cards. They all make fantastic gifts. And recently, I have added some unusual and striking reversible bandanas, suitable for both dogs and cats.
Hampers and Gift Boxes
You will find lots of goodies in the Barks & Squeaks shop and, if you are buying a gift, you can create your own beautiful, customised hamper. Check out our “Create Your Own Hamper” page to find out more. Our elegant hampers make fantastic gifts to welcome a new puppy or kitten or a re-homed pet, or for Christmas, birthdays or just as a treat for someone special. You can mix and match our products to create the perfect gift for a pet or a person, or a joint gift for both of them.
My blog is updated regularly with articles about pets, pet charities, pet health, reviews of places to go with your pet, interviews with people who work with pets and much much more.
