I hunt down the tastiest, most nutritious treats to fill your Deli Dog Box Company treat box!
Six years ago I set up my doggie daycare and home boarding business, Murphy’s Pet & Home Care Services, alongside my part time job working for British Airways. Covid hit both these industries particularly hard, and last summer I performed my last in-flight safety demo, hung up my uniform and said goodbye to my previously loved career.
At the same time, my partner Chris was also made redundant after a 40-year career in retail. With oodles of unexpected spare time in our early retirement, we decided to focus our attention on our new business.
The Deli Dog Box Company was borne out of wanting to provide the healthiest possible treats for the pets who came to stay with us at the doggie daycare business, and we realised that all-natural treats made for happy dogs and happy owners.
Chief taste-tester and quality control officer
I’m Tracey and Chris’s cockapoo puppy, who joined the company when I went to live with them during lockdown. I love running, chasing stuff and eating. I take my job very seriously.
I have recently retired after a 25-year career as a midwife in the NHS, and have swapped delivering babies for delivering doggie treat boxes! I met Tracey when my own fur-baby Byron went to stay at her doggie daycare. We soon became firm friends, sharing a love of running, cycling and dogs, of course!
When they asked if I wanted to be involved in The Deli Dog Box Company, I jumped at the chance! Having seen how much Byron loves his treats, I truly believe in the products we offer.
I also love writing, so I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into the social media marketing for the business. Rounding out the team is my husband Andy, who looks after all things IT and the web site.
Senior taste-tester and support doggo
I am a five year old cockapoo, and mostly I am interested in being wherever my mum, Carolyn, is.
My main hobbies and skills include sourcing and rolling in the filthiest puddles I can find and ensuring that Ralph doesn’t eat all the stock!
