For the happy high spirited and the armchair adventurers...
Ollie Collie create fun homeware and clothing for people who like to live life in full colour. Just like Border Collies, our products are hardworking but never boring.
I'm Heather, founder, chief dog walker and feeder of treats at Ollie Collie.
Dogs are family too
Getting outside and moving however you can, is essential to wellbeing
The stuff we spend our hard earned cash on should be both practical and pretty
Life is short and we should approach it with all the energy and enthusiasm that our four legged friends do
After many years living and working in big cities, I moved with my family to Cumbria in search of a more outdoorsy life. Now I'm passionate about encouraging others to make time for themselves in the great outdoors and make the most of every opportunity to find their adventurous spirit.
With a background in art & design, I believe that the items you surround yourself with should bring you joy as well as serve a practical purpose. I'm a minimalist at heart, and don't want to add to the clutter in anyone's home! The products we sell have to be useful otherwise they just don't make the cut.
A few interesting snippets
I'm totally addicted to cold water dipping and wild swimming
I love books, and especially love non fiction reads
When I took Ollie to his first puppy obedience class he chewed through his lead and ran off!

As with any small business, our products are always tested first on us! So as well as our children being mini brand reps of their own free will, we can also boast an impressive mug collection!
We are lucky to be based in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park and just a short drive away from the equally stunning Lake District National Park. You can see more of our adventures with Ollie by following us on social media.
