HOWND wins prestigious SCOOT Headline Award

HOWND - the makers of ethical grooming products for happy hounds - has won a prestigious award at this year’s SCOOT Headline Awards.

The Hertfordshire-based company picked up the ‘Gold Manufacturers’ Award’ on Monday 25th April 2016, at St Martin in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, London - beating more than 500 other small business applicants to the accolade.

The annual awards recognise and reward the successes and achievements of British businesses, large and small. SCOOT is keen to help local, regional and national businesses to maximise their commercial potential by bringing them and their achievements to the attention of a massive new audience.

HOWND’s online offering, strong brand identity and premium quality ‘Cruelty Free’ grooming products impressed the SCOOT Headline Awards judging panel.

The judges commented: “From an idea in 2013, this business has exploded onto the pet products market. Their great ideas are promoted under the ethos of ‘ethical products for happy hounds’ and they have accumulated a cabinet full of awards.

“From humble beginnings they now export globally and supply Pets at Home and many high street and online outlets. Even given the headache of a full rebranding a year ago, their clever marketing and top class products have seen continued growth for the team. By creating initiatives like #BringYourDogToWorkDay, they keep themselves firmly in the headlines.”

As a result of this SCOOT Headline Award success, HOWND are going on to to have their winning paper published in The National Business Leaders Yearbook, the leading work of reference on successful business techniques and best practice, so that others can follow their lead and learn from their achievement.

“Winning the ‘Gold Manufacturers’ Award’ is a fantastic achievement for us - and confirms that our brand identity makes a fantastic impression. What’s more, it’s clearly a recognition of the quality of cruelty-free grooming products - we couldn’t be happier!” explains Jo Amit, co-founder of HOWND.

HOWND manufactures a range of different grooming products, all of which are certified by Cruelty Free International. These products include HOWND Conditioning Shampoos, HOWND Body Mists and HOWND Emergency Dog Wipes.

The company have also recently launched two natural fragrances called Butch Leather Cologne for Man Dogs, and Peach Bum Parfum for Lady Dogs.
