Holy smokes, you guys, I have so many announcements to make! You might need to grab a cup of coffee to read through all of this. (But probably not nearly as much caffeine was needed to make all of these updates on my end, haha! :-D )
First and foremost, I want to extend an official welcome to Wag Theory! This rebrand/renaming of my business has been in the works for many months, and I'm SO excited to finally move forward with the new name that better encompasses the underlying passion of this brand that has been there all along!
Look! I even made a video about it.
As we near the fall months, I'm excited to be releasing 3 new bandana prints, plus 2 BRAND NEW products -- hip packs and biothane leashes!
Here is the link to the new collection (but don't click away just yet, because there's more exciting news to read below!)
Being able to personalize your pup's gear is super fun and special. Bandanas, waterproof (biothane) leashes, and backpacks can all be personalized now with a name or phrase! And I've simplified the process for making it happen. You'll be able to add this as an upcharge right as you add the item to the cart. Plus, I've added more lettering colors for you to choose from!
I've made changes to the way you can order your pup's new jacket, just in time for fall! You'll see that there are now two jacket sections:
These are the jackets I have on hand in my studio pre-made and are available to ship immediately. This section will get updated periodically with stock (that will be announced by email and social media, so be sure to follow along there!). I've also simplified the return/exchange process for these jackets in case you *think* a standard size will fit but need the assurance that you can exchange it if it won't work. See the policy section below for more details!
The custom option gives you the ultimate flexibility and is great for pups that may not fit the standard sizes. Plus you get so many fun choices to make when it comes to color, hardware, and the type of collar you'd prefer!
I've added a few new features to help you as you pick out your pup's jacket!
Swatches are now available (plus I'll include a flexible measuring tape with your swatch order if you'd like) and the cost of the swatches will be discounted from the purchase of a jacket.
I'm now offering fit consultations by phone to answer any questions you may have. Just book a 15 minute call through the app and I'll look forward to chatting with you!
Average breed sizes have been added to the in-stock landing page to help narrow you in on what size you might need. Please note that measuring your dog is ALWAYS recommended to ensure you'll be the most satisfied with your purchase since pups come in all shapes and sizes, just like humans do!
To celebrate the launch, all purchases made between now and Monday, August 25th will include a fun free gift of two Wag Theory waste bag rolls plus a three-pack of button pins with fun dog-lover phrases! But hurry, because I'll only be including these with orders placed through Monday, August 25th!
You can now earn rewards for purchasing Wag Theory gear and for referring your friends to the brand! Check out the rewards tab for more details and I hope you'll sign up today to start earning Wag Points!
We've implemented an online portal to simplify the process of exchanges and returns (for store credit only). As always, you'll be responsible for the cost of shipping the item back to us, but we've added a new clause to our policy that we'll cover the shipping cost of getting your new item to you (one time only) for exchanges!
We know how exciting it is to get a new puppy, and how fast they outgrow their gear! So we are pleased to offer a one-time upgrade discount of 25% per item purchased for your pup (valid within 1 year of your original purchase date). We just ask that you send back your outgrown gear so that it can be donated to a pup in need through our non-profit partner!
I hope to organize a socially distant launch event in Portland soon to take a moment to celebrate this big milestone and all of the fun that is to come over the following months and years! Stay tuned for more details soon on this soon!

Designing the Rain or Shine fabric was a project I started working on in June 2021 based on a few goals I had been kicking around in the back of my mind. I actually wasn't sure I would be able to pull it off, but it turns out, any thing is possible! ;-)
Here were my initial goals:

One of the biggest pain points I have as a dog mom is feeling like there is dog stuff EVERYWHERE in our house. In order to combat this issue, I came up with some ways to categorize and organizing our dog clothes, toys, supplies, and gear.
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!
