It’s a Pet Thing!

About usOur brandsPast & futureSuppliers & export

Here at Rosewood, we’ve been keeping dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, hamsters, fish – in fact all sorts of pets – happy for over half a century. That means sourcing and making top quality, great value products for retailers like you.

We know that your customers regard their pets not as animals, but as part of the family. We do, too. That’s how it should be. They’re pet parents, not just owners. That’s why we put so much effort into providing the very best, at the very best prices. From toys to treats to collars to bedding, our range is unsurpassed. We look for great ideas and top quality – and where we can’t find it, we develop our own!

Rosewood in a nutshell

Rosewood sources, produces and distributes pet accessories, pet treats and an exciting range of related products for pets and the people who love them. But that’s only part of the story. We also design and develop our own pet care products to get tails wagging, keep kitties sitting pretty, and help birds, small furries and fish enjoy happier, healthier lives.

It’s all about giving your customers the products they need to best care for their fur (and feather) babies!

Passionate about pets

We’re passionate about giving you the kind of products you want to sell – and giving your customers the kind of products they want to buy. That’s because happy suppliers mean happy and loyal customers, and that means happy and healthy pets. That’s why Rosewood is more than just a product thing. It’s even more than just a business thing. It really is a pet thing!

Past & future

About usOur brandsPast & futureSuppliers & export

Walkies down memory lane

Here at Rosewood, we’ve got pedigree when it comes to making pets and their people happy. It all started right back in 1960, when three animal-loving friends realised that petshops UK-wide needed a hand fetching spot on products…

Rosewood takes its name from one of our founders: Rose Wood. Together with her husband Eric and partner Harry Irving, they spotted the need for better pet products, and got stuck in. Harry’s still our company chairman today!

In 1980, Rosewood moved our offices and warehouse to Broseley – we’ve called this pretty Shropshire village home for the last 35 years. As time has passed, our passion for pets and our client base has seen our network grow with some unexpected twists and turns along the way.

Stormy weather in 2005 saw a shipping container with Rosewood products being lost overboard –60,000 Mister Twister, Chubleez and Jolly Moggy Christmas toys were lost at sea, only to wash up all over the Sussex and Isle of Wight coastlines. We heard they made great stocking fillers!

We’ve also developed many products but a highlight has to be the Snuggles small animal bedding range. It’s been a real hit with small animals, their ‘parents’… and unexpectedly, wildlife centres too! Beds from the range have provided comfy nests for red squirrel babies that were bred as part of a reintroduction programme in Scotland since 2006.

More recently, the biggest developments have been to do with our brand. A new look, a new logo and a new line – “it’s a pet thing!” – sum up how we feel about our retailers, their customers, and most importantly, the VIPets we serve.

What we’re looking forward to

What’s around the corner? We’re as excited about the future as your dog is when the lead comes out at walkies time. New product development, new brands, and more great products becoming available to more pets across the UK – and beyond.

It’s come as no surprise that the demand for brilliant pet products has been rising steadily. As pet parents ourselves, we know that as quality, choice and information about welfare improves, so do consumers’ standards and demands. That’s why we’re constantly on the lookout for new and better, both in the brands to partner with, and the opportunities we discover to create innovative new products.

Look forwards, the future offers many possibilities, but we can be certain of the promises we make our stockists and our suppliers.

We promise our stockists:

Innovation as we develop our own brands and products. Top quality, global product sourcing and design. A broad (but well curated) range of products – with six monthly updates. Customer focused service, always. Great value for money. A fast, reliable delivery service to over 60 countries worldwide.

We promise our suppliers:

An honest, open and ethical relationship. True partnership, commitment and support to help you grow. A passion for innovative products that improve pets’ lives.
