Wear Wag Repeat is all about supporting women and their dogs. On my podcast I exclusively feature women in the pet industry. And in my online shop, I support dog mom makers who share my belief that your dog gear should be just as stylish as your own accessories!
Four years ago, we packed up our lives and moved from Canada to Europe with our dog. We've travelled all over Europe by car and train, and our dog has joined us on nearly every trip. I wanted to share my experience so other pet owners can safely move abroad with their pets, and share my favorite pet-friendly destinations for people to enjoy local travel with their pets.
I originally started Dachshund Station because I wanted to work from home and be my own boss. I also have young children, so I need to be available when they need me. So it is much more convenient for me to work from home.
I have always been involved within the dog showing world (my parents bred Cairn Terriers and I began showing my own dogs at 10 years of age). My adult life has been spent fostering abandoned dogs (and cats) and rehoming them. I always wanted to become a vet but unfortunately did not follow that path. Instead I volunteered at RSPCA as a Vet Nurse Assistant for some time.
I started Wild Woolly Heads to help people who were grieving over their passed dogs. I was making dogs as a hobby and friends kept asking me if I could make a replica of a their passed dog or a friend’s passed dog. I ended up doing so many dogs that I had to start a business.
As an artist, my business is more than a just means to make an income, as it is the platform through which I can both personally express myself and create beautiful artwork for others to enjoy. In November 2018, I started my business, Ashley Bunting Studio.
