Hello from Marianne, Spike & Milo at Trotting Dog
The place for funny Vizsla cards and personalised gifts.
With almost 2 gingers in our house (Milo is a rescue Vizsla cross) we know a bit about the Velcro Vizsla and love drawing them.
Our business was founded in 2017 after Marianne crowdfunded and self published a children’s book featuring illustrations of Spike.
Her drawings became so popular she decided to create lots more cards and personalised gifts for dog lovers.
We do love creating gorgeous illustrated dog collections but more importantly support people who work to rescue and re-home Vizslas.
Milo joined his forever pack last year rescued from the streets of Cyprus, as a result we want to give a little back to help other gingers find loving homes too.
We think he’s pretty happy today!
Where is the Isle of Wight and do you ship worldwide?
Yes, we ship and post worldwide. In fact we have lots of Vizsla families and followers in the USA, Australia and Germany to name a few.
The Isle of Wight is a small island about 2 miles off the South Coast of England. You can only reach us by boat from Southampton or Portsmouth. The quickest trip is around 10 minutes by Hovercraft! You can come over a a foot passenger or with your car on the ferries and dogs are welcome on all routes. Check out Visit Isle of Wight for information about getting to the Island and what to do when you are here.
Shipping and postage costs vary according to Country and this will be shown at checkout
Can you do drawings of other dog breeds
We mostly draw Vizsla’s but have other dog illustrations on some of our cards.
Sometimes we add different breeds to our collections. Outside of our busiest time of year, Christmas, we may have time for commissions. Please get in touch if you have a request.
Is personalisation possible on your products
We hand print our designs on mugs, bags, cushion covers and prints in our studio on the Isle of Wight. Personalisation options are shown on product descriptions in the shop. Please drop us a line if you have any questions!
What do I do if I don’t like my items
Most importantly let us know! Marianne can be reached directly on email@example.com or message us through Trotting Dog on Facebook. We will replace or refund a product if you are not satisfied. In short we are a hands on small business aiming to be flexible to keep you and your dogs happy.
