- SCROOBY'S STORY -
Why we do what we do
- A FAMILY BUSINESS -
We live and breathe Bounders
Bounders was founded in 2015 when Joe was inspired to 'try something new' by his Jack Russell puppy Scrooby. Wife Debs joined the business following the birth of their daughter Jessica.
Jess has been brought up surrounded by her dad's artwork and she adores meeting all the puppies at shows and walks. It comes as no surprise her first word was "dog"!
Starting a business and a family at the same time isn't really a smart idea, but that hasn't stopped them following their dream, and now every working day revolves around the family, as the business grows from strength to strength.
- MARKETING DIRECTOR -
Wife - Mother - Creative
It is said that behind every great man is an even greater woman.
Debs is the workhorse who keeps it all going. Joining the business following the birth of their daughter Jessica, she had to learn everything about social media and marketing on the job, while at the same time learning how to be a mother and supportive wife!
Like Joe, she is very creative, and has run her own artisan cake business. Although Bounders and family now take up most of her time, she still enjoys baking, crafting, and has recently taken up distance running.
