Calling all my dog moms that are always looking for a new leash or collar to spice up your walks! I love love love changing up my dogs leashes and collars, I mean I don’t like wearing the same thing every day so I just assume that I don’t like it either (yes, I know, they don’t care!)!
A while back I was sitting on the couch looking for something new and exciting, and I came across Eat Play Wag, and honestly, I was really upset that this was the first time I had seen them. To say I am obsessed is an understatement, the quality of everything they offer is a 10/10 and the endless options are mindblowing, there is literally something for everyone! I have three sets already and I am already planning my next three!
I had a chance to ask the owner of Eat Play Wag, Sonia some questions about her amazing company, see her answers below:
Why did you start Eat Play Wag?
In 2017, my husband and I brought home our first puppy and I became an obsessed dog mom. The following year, I started Eat Play Wag because I believed like myself, pet owners would want the best for their four-legged best friends. I recognized a gap between what was available in the market and what I would want for my puppy, so with my background in design and architecture, I got to work creating EPW’s beautiful, functional, and high-quality products.
Tell us about your pup(s)!
I’ve always had a dog in my family but Garby, our 3-year-old Bernedoodle, is my first very own dog. Garby means “short rib” in Korean and all of our family dogs had names that end with ”-by” so I thought I’d keep that tradition. He is smart, loving, friendly, and also the laziest boy of all time. His favorite thing to do is to meet and play with other dogs and people.
What and who influences your work?
Garby has been an inspiration for my work since day one. Our experience as dog parents directly informs product development, and we work hard to create safe, sturdy, and functional goods for our precious pups. My background in art, architecture, and design has also provided many influences over the years. Nerdy architecture fact: my favorite architects are Herzog & de Meuron!
What is/are your fav dog brands and why?
I love Chewy because of their fantastic customer service and great selection of pet products. It’s a one-stop shop, and is really helpful for first-time dog owners.
What are your favorite pieces of your collection?
I love all of our two-tone step-in harnesses as the color-block design on our harnesses has become a signature of our brand. My current favorite color combination is Olive-Lilac, which I’ve been using almost every day since we launched Lilac.
What is new for your company in 2020?
We hit some big milestones this year and last year including partnering with Nordstrom and setting up our own production facility in Seoul, South Korea. There will be a big fall/winter collection launch in August and we are planning to launch an entirely new product line later this year or early next year. It’s one of the biggest projects we’ve worked on yet and can’t wait to share it with everyone. Stay tuned!
