From Pet Sitting To Keeping You Comfy: How Our Business is Evolving During The Lockdown

Pet Sitters Ireland

I recently decided to open a pet apparel store. Why would I do this after so many years of running our national pet sitting and dog walking business?

If you haven’t read my other blog posts my name is Kate McQuillan and own Pet Sitters Ireland along with my husband Michael. We have 2 gorgeous Pointer dogs and a very spoilt cat called Smug.

Over the last 10 years we have been privileged to work with so many pet owners across Ireland taking care of their gorgeous pets – whether that has been while they work or when they take a holiday.

But then disaster struck the world. As a business, we had to adapt.

Dog Lovers T ShirtWhat could we do?

It was my love of comfy clothing that sparked the idea. Hoodies, sweatshirt, t-shirts, leggings…all of them are on my go-to list of favourite clothes. I can’t get enough.

Being a huge animal lover they suit my lifestyle of constantly being covered in pet hair! (I’m sure you can all relate to that!)

Combine a comfy sweatshirt with a way to show off my love of pets and I’m sold.

Because in my opinion you can NEVER have enough comfy clothes! And it turned out it wasn’t just me.

I talked to other pet owners and they love this stuff too. So here we were looking for a way to adapt our business and it made sense.

What comfy clothes are we selling?

We’re starting with hoodies, sweatshirts, t-shirts and aprons – and a few mugs for all that coffee and tea we are all drinking! And we are expanding rapidly as we develop more designs.

The clothing has cute sayings on that we can ALL relate to. And many items have our signature paw logo on them.

It’s a fun range for pet lovers who want to let the world know they love their pets – just like we do.

Does this mean no more Pet Sitting and Dog Walking?

Absolutely not – we are currently still here to service frontline workers when needed and when the rest of Ireland can get back to work and travel again we are there for those people too. Pet Sitting and Dog Walking will always be the core of our business.

We love our fur customers!
