What is a Wags Doggy Bag?

A wet and dirty dog solution! Take your wet, mucky mutt, put them in a Wags Doggy Bag, and a short time later they are dry and all the mess from their coat is in the bag, not in your home or car!

If you want to know more and see what's been going, on then check out Instagram and Facebook and see some of the behind the scenes action to getting a business up and running. Hint - it's exciting and busy and exhausting and thrilling all at once. Did I say exhausting??

You can read what some of our newest customers have to say on our Testimonials page.  For example breeds, sizes and how to measure your dog, go to the Sizes and Pricing page.  If you know the size you need, go straight to the Shop page.

So what do you love about your work?

Coming into this business was a completely new experience for me, moving from the creative and corporate worlds.

I didn’t really know what to expect. The learning curve was steep for textiles and manufacturing. I was daunted by the prototype process and insanely excited by it too. Getting a pattern from paper into a digital format was another step. Creating the sizes was also a real puzzle that prompted some creative fixes - hello adjustable neck! I can still recall those lightbulb discussions with various people that contributed to the refinements and the joy those moments brought.

I think one of the things I really enjoy is packaging up a bag either for retail or mail and sending it on its way. Hoping that it will relieve some wet and dirty dog frustrations in the home it’s going to.

How about you? What’s your work jam?
Catching the last rays of summer, Jersey loved her bag right away after her walk.

Peanut butter for the win!!! 🥜🐾
A huge thank you to Bowser Pet Products @bowserspetproducts and Bark Pet Boutique @barkpetboutique for going out of their way and making the exchange work for Cedar's XL crescent bed. Clearly a medium wasn't going to work for a long and lean Border Collie. Trying to get the bed back to Ontario from Van Is was going to be super costly, so Philip at Bark Pet Boutique down in Victoria came to the rescue.

Someone decreed it to be National Dog Day??? Super busy at the moment, but my Cedar times are some of my favourite each day. Isn’t it always National Dog Day?
