About Us


    Much to our joy dogs seem to like us and to be involved with all things” dog” gives us a real buzz!   Do you lose your heart to certain breeds  and less so to others? 







    Our dog images are carefully selected and appear on our wide range of clothing.   We aim to both please you and the person you have bought for.  (Now there’s an idea.)  

    Creating items is our favorite activity and ideas are always welcome at  info@1066dogs.com    A design that imparts vibrance will always appeal.

    It would take forever and a day to feature all the breeds, so for now we are concentrating on the most popular ones and as time goes by we will expand the choices.  Drop by again soon to see how we’re getting on.


      When we think of our “best friend” we rarely have time to be introspective because they draw us out of ourselves.  Their love is unconditional.

          So where on earth does 1066 come from? 

        • In the year 1066 a chap called Henri Bosville crossed the English Channel from France to England, and, basically was part of the victorious invading army. (Battle of Hastings 1066)
        • Henri was a great success as a leader of soldiers and was rewarded by King William with a large parcel of land and a title. While I have none of the wealth nor a title (!) Bosville was indeed my 26x great grandfather.
        • Down the years the name became Boswell and although it is not my surname, it is my third name.   When I pass on, the name will disappear, so what better timing than to use it now!

        Dogs are intelligent, with some breeds more so than others.   With training they are capable of some really remarkable activities to help us humans.

        There are a number of worthwhile dog charities and the one we support is Canine Partners.  5% of all sales goes to them.  We went to their training centre to see the dog skills being developed and what we saw was really remarkable!

        I'm impressed by dogs generally let alone the specially trained ones.  The more I read, write and talk about dogs the greater my admiration.   

        As a company we are open to your thoughts, thanks for reading this and over time enjoy your purchases.
