About Rigby & Rhys

Hello and Welcome to our site

You may be asking yourself "Who are Rigby & Rhys"? So here's a little bit about us and our journey to this point.

Rigby and Rhys sell stylish soft furnishings and accessories for you and your floofer or woofer. We provide high quality, functional pieces that will complement your home.  As a dog owner it can be difficult to find a stylish look without giving over too much of your carefully crafted style for your beloved dog. I found this issue myself and concluded that the only way to properly address this, was to start Rigby & Rhys. We  are committed to providing a range of quality items based on feedback from dog owners like yourselves that complement your home AND your dog.

Rigby & Rhys has come about from a love of dogs and house interiors and from commonly observed comments from other dog owners.  Many years ago, when our children were young, we very much wanted to have a dog as part of the family. The health and social benefits of having a dog in your life are were widely known, however my husband and I worked full time so this would not have been a realistic possibility.  The perfect solution was to become weekend socialisers for the Hearing Dogs charity. We spent a wonderful few years entertaining dogs of all sizes and breeds. One of these characters will always have a special place in my heart as we shared a bond immediately on meeting. Enter Rhys, the Pekingese Shih T’zu cross and he was gorgeous.  We looked after Rhys regularly during his training and became very fond of him. He graduated and went to his new home doing great work as a fully fledged hearing dog.That’s when I knew our lives were destined to centre on the world of canines.

The children grew up and we decided in 2016 it was time for a permanent addition to our family.  Our circumstances have changed so we can spend more time with our dog Rigby the Shihpoo. We adore him and he is the light of our lives.

So begins the next phase of the journey as Rigby & Rhys is launched. We are really excited to have the opportunity to reach so many people with the enthusiasm we have for dogs, interior design and the beautiful products we sell.  The business is constantly evolving and we welcome your ideas and experiences of looking for products that you have not been able to find, particularly in relation to interior pieces. I hope you find us helpful and innovative providers of high quality, functional goods that your dog and you with love equally. Please send us your feedback and photos of your dogs / homes with their new products.

See you soon
