Poppy and Rufus is a UK brand of contemporary, beautiful and stylish dog products. Founders Sue and Louise are life-long friends since university. They decided to set up their business after realising that it’s difficult to find proper, functional dog beds that aren’t dull, predictable or kitsch. Poppy and Rufus aim to create highly functional dog accessories that look chic, work together as a range and fit perfectly in a modern home.
The key concept throughout the Poppy and Rufus range is the continuity, they want the designs to carry through everything in the range from beds, toys, storage boxes to blankets so there will be no more random bits of dog accessories lying around the house. Textile designer Jenny Lee-Katze designed three patterns for Poppy and Rufus’s ranges – Poppy, Rufus and Leaf. Jenny’s designs were inspired by clean and bold Scandinavian graphics. And colour palette is neutral and modern from white, beige and shades of blue. The company are very proud to use only British manufacturers and craftsmen to product their range in the UK. With extra thoughts into making the products washable, wipeable, comfy, un-chewable and portable Poppy and Rufus are perfect solution for practical dog owners who loves beautiful contemporary designs.

Monty dog bowl is traditionally made for Poppy and Rufus in the heart of ‘the potteries’ by Hartley Greens and Co Leeds Pottery, using a white Cornish clay that results in a gorgeous pale cream finish. Hand embellished with a circle of our Rufus design dogs in taupe, grey and charcoal, Monty will look fabulous on your kitchen floor.
Toto Dog Treat Jar is crafted in the same white Cornish clay by Hartley Greens and Co Leeds Pottery as their dog bowl, Monty. Clean, contemporary lines and with a tiny row of our Rufus design dogs running around the base make Toto perfect for displaying on a shelf or surface, readily stocked with treats or chews for rewards, praise or just because!
Fabulous, flexible and functional, Buster is the most useful Welly Bag ever! Big enough to hold a whole family’s wellies or muddy walking boots and beautiful enough to have proudly on display. A handy side pocket holds towels, leads or toys and strong side handles make carrying Buster easy.
Made from Poppy and Rufus exclusive oilcloth printed fabric, Buster can collapse down when not in use or squash into the littlest car boot, taking up minimal space, yet can hold plenty when required. An overall Winner of the Show!
A clever little travel food bowl made from lightweight but sturdy oilcloth, in ‘little Rufus’ print, with a waterproof lining and a drawstring, nylon top which keeps kibble in place but folds back on itself so Scout becomes a bowl. A food container and dinner service in one!
A small, neatly-folded pouch that fits snugly into any pocket or bag and then opens out into a handy water bowl to let your dog quench his thirst on long, hot walks. Lightweight and lovely to look at, Dixie, our water bowl, is perfectly portable and practical too.
