This week we're introducing you to the three Barbour Dogs of independent store Psyche...
 
Bailey
 
Introduce yourself and tell us what breed you are?
My name is Baily and I am a Springer Spaniel, I was meant to stop growing but I grew and grew into an oversized Springer Spaniel.
 
What is your role at the store and what does that involve?
My role in store is to put a smile on the everyone’s face and make people laugh. I can’t come into store to often because I am too big and knock things off desks but when I do I love to play ball with the team.
 
Who is your human and what is their role at the store?
My owners are called Jess and Matthew, my mummy (Jess) is the Marketing Manager at Psyche.
 
 
Bonnie
 
Introduce yourself and tell us what breed you are?
Hi! My name is Bonnie and I’m a miniature poodle with apricot coloured hair.
 
 
What is your role at the store and what does that involve?
My job is to tell everyone that Psyche is the best fashion paw… oops, I mean fashion store. I really enjoy it because the more people I tell, the more treats I get (hurrah!). And people listen to me because I’m cute and fluffy!
 
Who is your human and what is their role at the store?
My human is Sarah and she’s the Social Media and Content Editor at Psyche. In her spare time, she takes a ton of photos of me and puts them on her personal Instagram! Apparently, the Internet looooves photos of cute animals!
 
 
Monty
 
Introduce yourself and tell us what breed you are?
My name is Monty. I am an Australian Labradoodle. Everyone thinks I’m just a labradoodle but I’m extra special because I’m an Australian Labradoodle which means I was bred to be a guide dog in Australia
 
 
What is your role at the store and what does that involve?
I love being the chief greeter in Psyche as we attract a wide range of customers and everyone loves to stroke me. However, my main role is wonder around the top floor offices and play ball with the staff (when the boss isn’t watching of course!).
 
Who is your human and what is their role at the store?
My owners are called Alex and Steve and they are the Director’s of Psyche.
 
 
Tell us about your store?
Psyche is a multi-award winning designer retailer for mens, ladies, juniors, and even pooches like me!
 
What makes your store unique?
Apart from me of course! Psyche is one of the longest standing independent retailers in the Middlesborough area and we love nothing more than to treat our customers to the best shopping experience. Did you know what that we’re celebrating our 35th anniversary in October? It’s almost time for a paw-tay!
 
What is your favourite part of the store and why?
Well, obviously, it’s the world of Barbour. All of us and our doggy friends just LOVE the Barbour Dogs collection; in particular the stylish dog coat. You can get a miniature Barbour coat to match your human’s coat. We’ve already added all the dog accessories to our Christmas wishlists.
