Our story begins in New York City…
An actor and an athlete making dreams come true one day at a time. Yep, that was us. The world was our oyster and we were living life to the fullest. When we weren’t working with clients or rehearsing lines, you would usually find us out on an adventure somewhere. New York City is full of all kinds of “urban adventures”.
When we came home at night, however, something was missing… an energetic snuggle monster… a doggo! In 2016, we adopted Ellie Pickles, a special needs pup from Bideawee Animal Shelter. We found not only a new best friend, but we discovered a passion for dog rescue as well.
On March 13th, 2020, our world came to a halt. The fitness studios canceled classes indefinitely, Broadway was closed until the following year and we didn’t know what was to come. The pandemic’s impact was unimaginable on our beloved city. Our parents called us and said “it’s time to come home.”
Fast forward a few days. It was a Saturday, and one we’ll never forget. We got up that morning and went to visit my parents. This visit was different. Our discussions about Ellie’s adventure gear soon went from, “I wish they made a (fill in the blank) that did this, to “Let’s start our own dog brand and do something about it”!
The whole family was buzzing with excitement, and the ball has been rolling ever since!
New ideas ignited left and right for innovative and quality products, products that allow you to bring your doggo with you whether you’re going camping or just walking to the nearby dog park.
We are excited to share our family business with you.
With Ellie Pickles as our Brand AmbassaDOG, we’ll be taking you on our adventures along the way!
