THE STORY OF POOCH & TABBY
I started Pooch & Tabby Pet Accessories after not being able to find a collar for my handsome puppy, Timbit. Everything was either a boring solid colour or pink with hearts. The mass-produced collar just didn’t suit my pup’s personality or his needs. Combining 15 years of sewing experience at the time and a love of being crafty, I made my first collar. After interest grew in my neighbourhood for Timbit's collars, I started to make collars and accessories for others, and my business was born. Sadly, my pup passed away in 2020, but he was my inspiration for this business and still represents the "WE" I speak of throughout this site. To this day, he's my reminder that I need to make the best product possible because our pets truly deserve it.
Specializing in collars, leashes, bow ties and collar flowers, Pooch & Tabby only uses the best materials available and purchases most of our raw materials from Canadian suppliers. Customizing many of my products to suit your pet’s needs based on their personality, size, age, breed and more is at the heart of what this shop is about. Making sure your pet has the product that is right for them, is key.
In 2018, Pooch & Tabby was selected as the only pet accessories company, from all the Canadian pet businesses on Etsy, to be a part of Etsy Canada's first ever Holiday Collection in partnership with celebrity influencer Jillian Harris. We collaborated on a dog collar and bow tie set and matching child bow tie.
With over 22,000 sales to date, new product lines in the works and the opportunity to continue to grow ahead, I hope that Pooch & Tabby can continue to be a part of your pet's journey in this lifetime. A big thank you to every single customer that supported Pooch & Tabby to this point over the years and continue to support handmade small businesses.
