Meet Our Plush Toy Partner DoggyBe
I can't tell you how many toys we ordered for Foxi when we first adopted her. Within minutes Maria would shout 'That's that one in pieces'.
We first came across the Doggy Be collection at Petsville and although they were a little more expensive than toys we had purchased previously, they were noticeably more durable, and if you buy rubbish you just buy it twice right? So away we went with our first DoggyBe toy.
We knew we wanted good quality toys for Foxi Box however we didn't actually approach Marie, the owner of Doggy Be. We had decided that the toys were too expensive for a startup doggie box and why would she need to or want to work with us? Other successful businesses hadn't given us a chance, she certainly wasn't going to.
To our amazement, Marie reached out to us. We had met with a number of people in the dog community along with Foxi to discuss our plans and build relationships. Cynthia who owns Woof, had told Marie about us and our genuine desire to help more rescues like Foxi.
A few days later we were sat in Doggy Be's warehouse.
Marie is truly the greatest animal lover we have come across in Dubai and the passion she has for her business is inspiring to say the least. I'm confident you wouldn't be reading this if we hadn't met Marie. Not just because of the amazing quality of Doggy Be toys, but Marie herself has been an integral part of this business.
Every idea I have, even if Maria thinks it's a good one, the answer is
'Why don't we ask Marie'.
We are very lucky to have amazing people like Marie around us to help us fulfill our vision. She really is one in a million.
