We are Paul, Jen and Harlso and we are the co-founders of Love Harlso. Love Harlso is a dog accessory brand based in Northern Ireland. We specialise in fun and stylish dog harnesses, leads and collars. Furthermore, we also pride ourselves on making a positive impact on animal welfare. This brand is named after our dog Harlso. He is a 9 year old dachshund who became famous for his ability to balance almost anything on his head. With almost 500,000 followers across social media we have been able to use Harlso’s platform to help raise over £70,000 for animal charities worldwide!
One of our main objectives with this brand is to promote shelter dogs and help them find their forever homes. We do this in a number of different ways working closely with different charities. We collaborate with a local dog shelter called The Barn Animal Rescue . This collaboration sees us create videos of dogs from the shelter enjoying a day out wearing our harnesses. The videos are posted to our social media accounts, and we’re thrilled to have helped some of these dogs get adopted. It’s incredibly rewarding to know that we’re making a difference in the lives of these animals. At Love Harlso we believe that all dogs deserve a loving home.
Love Harlso donates £1 from every sale to ‘PlayforStrays‘. This charity that provides a service to any no-kill animal shelter, globally. They provide toys, bedding, food and other items as required. PlayforStrays also works alongside charitable groups that assist the homeless community by providing coats, harnesses, toys, and food to their beloved animals. It is an honour to be able to help to support their efforts for animals in need.
Our commitment to animal welfare has not gone unnoticed. We’re proud to have won the “Dog Clothing and Accessory Retailer of the Year” award at the Northern Ireland Pet Awards in 2022. It is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team, and its humbling to have received this recognition. We’re also excited to be finalists for the same award again in 2023, and we hope to continue making a positive impact on the animal welfare community in Northern Ireland through this dog accessory brand.
We believe that our actions can make a difference, no matter how small they may seem. By choosing to support Love Harlso, you’re not just getting high-quality dog accessories, you’re also supporting our mission to promote animal welfare and give back to the community. Thank you for joining us on this journey.
