I am so excited to officially announce that the Commuter Backpack is now available! But don't forget, this is a limited release and there is only a small batch available!
It might be helpful to understand a bit about my background to see how the pieces lined up for this product to come to life.
Several years ago I started to make bags and accessories (for humans) to fit needs for travel, work, and life under the brand name Jo Rose Design. Organically this evolved into prototyping stylish yet functional products I desired as a dog owner.
After launching Wag Theory with a waxed canvas rain jacket, it was only natural that I started to think about bag construction again, this time for dogs!
As part of the design process, I visited a co-working office space to talk to dog owners that bring their pups to work. The final design is modeled after a traditional backpack that might carry daily essentials for a pup headed to the office, but is equally functional for a trip out and about for errands, to the park, or to hang out with friends.
After revising the straps of this backpack countless times to ensure the best possible fit for the widest range of dogs, we uncovered some tips to help with sizing and fit:
Wag Theory now offers personalization on certain items and the cuteness factor goes through the roof when a pup's name is added!

My two biggest goals when organizing are:
None of my organization tips below require you to have a Pinterest-worthy space or matching bins. You can certainly make it that way if you choose, but you'll see that I've personally chosen function over fashion when it comes to my organizational strategy ;-)
Without further ado, here are my top four tips for keeping your dog stuff organized!

Dogs are constantly grooming themselves, which means that any surface they are in contact with is likely being ingested. I decided to start with finding non-toxic dog-friendly DIY cleaner recipes for their dog bowls plus our floors, surfaces, windows, and toilet bowls. There are tons of recipes available online, but I chose formulas that had minimal ingredients that I had already at home, and have opted not to use essential oils for scent though some recipes include this as an option. (I just know dog noses are super sensitive and that essential oils are extremely concentrated, so I've opted to personally avoid it since the natural vinegar smell dissipates quite quickly).
Below is a list of recipes we decided to try out!
