Our story starts a little different than most. I didn’t have a dog with a problem that I needed to solve, instead I was looking for a way to finance my daughter's dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer…about as far from dogs as you can get!
Determined to find a way to fund her full-time ballet school, I delved into researching various income-generating opportunities and the pet niche was always top-of-mind. During my exploration, I stumbled upon a course that ignited my passion for creating my own brand. As a designer at heart, this resonated with me, and I decided to launch my very own e-commerce store. Although my daughter's dreams evolved and took a different path, I had already fallen head over heels with my grand idea!
At The Happy Jack Co, we specialise in providing naturally pawsome products for discerning dog parents who want nothing but the best for their dogs.
We offer a range of carefully curated items that keep your dog looking, smelling, and feeling absolutely pawsome.
The name "The Happy Jack Co" carries a bittersweet story behind it. Surprisingly, it was inspired by our beloved, now departed cat, Jack. I know, it may seem treacherous and deceitful, but bear with me! When I embarked on this business venture, I wasn't even a dog parent…oh the shame! It was a year later when we welcomed our rescue dog, Roxy into our family. She quickly won over our hearts and claimed her place in our home and on our bed. But Jack, our feline friend, remained unfazed, knowing that he still ruled the roost. And now, his name lives on.
I must confess that, in the early days, I struggled with imposter syndrome. How could a cat person launch a business dedicated to dogs? However, now as a seasoned dog parent, the guilt has been replaced with a desire to learn more about our canine family member.
Initially, the vision was to create a vast online store catering to both cats and dogs. Extensive research led me to the realisation that dog parents show remarkable dedication and love to their four-legged companions, sometimes even adorning them in clothing! It was then that I thought, "These are my people!"
It was also during this research stage that I became aware that, just like us, many dogs suffer from skin allergies and irritations and their owners are often looking for natural solutions to ease the dreaded itch and the constant paw licking. Likewise, I discovered many of the short nosed breeds such as French Bulldogs and Pugs suffer from very dry, cracked and crusty noses. It was then that I embarked on finding natural solutions to alleviate the symptoms, without the use of harsh or potentially toxic, chemicals.
Products that are effective, safe if licked and can be used frequently without any long-term health issues.
At our core, we have a deep desire to create products that alleviate the suffering of dogs from common issues like skin irritations, dry, cracked painful noses and paws, and easily prevented dental problems.
