Meet Hazel Coulson, owner of luxury dog accessory retailer, Urban Pooch.
As a dog owner herself Hazel Coulson struggled to find good quality products that were a little bit different for her Blue French Bulldog, Ivy... so she decided to open a business and sell just that.
Urban Pooch at Amble Harbour Village opened seven years ago and sells luxury dog accessories from dog collars to dog beer and even dog ice cream!
Hazel said: “There just wasn’t anywhere locally where we could find that something a bit different for Ivy, so I thought why not set something up myself.
“We try and follow the latest doggy trends and stock national brands such as Cath Kidston and Joules.”
Despite a challenging last year Hazel is looking forward to welcoming visitors and holidaymakers back to the area.
“I’m hoping it’s going to be a busy summer for us as many people choose to stay in the UK for their holiday. It’s such a lovely atmosphere at the Harbour Village and everyone who supports the businesses here knows they helping to put something back into the local area.”
