Sue & Brian started Craftyhounds in 2013 following the adoption of Monty & Gracie, two ex racing greyhounds, from Forever Hounds Trust (FHT) and our love of this gentle, elegant & often goofy breed started.
Helping these Hounds proved to be a perfect outlet for our passion for arts & crafts and we now sell our items to raise funds for the hounds in care
We are based in the UK and specialise in quality gifts & accessories not only for our best houndy friends but also our human friends and family.
Over the years Craftyhounds has grown into a little cottage industry and we have now a small group of animal lover helpers, although most of the Team work full time so all our gifts and accessories are made in spare time at the weekend.
We attend a number of events alongside FHT and have raised funds to purchase a variety of equipment, accessories & treats to help these hounds in their journey to a forever sofa.
We will continue to raise funds for FHT as well as being able to support other rescue charities, all of whom are struggling with the cost of living crisis alongside an increase of dogs being handed in to rescues
Meet the Makers
Everyone involved in Craftyhounds do so in their spare time and have between us have 14 dogs of differing breeds and sizes so we have plenty of "willing models" & testers for our accessories and toys. Some items are not available via the Craftyhounds Etsy Shop as they take a while to make due to time constraints but if there is anything you see that you like please email on the link above.
