These will be sold at the company’s six bricks and mortar stores in London and the Cotswolds, as well as online.

Scoff Paper came up with the ‘In Cahoots’ partnerships idea when talking to potential retailers about stocking their products, which are made with potatoes and natural flavourings. Gemma, who is also a volunteer guide dog puppy raiser, said: “It’s so important to us to make our cards accessible to dog lovers everywhere.

“By carefully selecting the right partners, we can work side-by-side with retailers who know and understand their own customers’ needs to develop products that are just right for them.

“As our business grows, we’re keen to explore more exclusive ‘In Cahoots’ partnerships to make it easy for dog lovers to show their appreciation for their pets - wherever they like to shop.” The company also recently worked ‘In Cahoots’ with fresh dog food subscription company, Butternut Box, to develop a one-off card to help the company celebrate its seventh birthday.

Gemma added: “We’re always interested to hear from companies, large or small, to do something unique, innovative and exciting with them.

“In the past we have also made bespoke edible dog passports and invitations - the possibilities are endless.”
