It all started in 2012 when we got our first puppy, Helo. He was our first English Mastiff and is the pup in our logo! Shortly after getting him, we decided he needed a brother, and found our second pup, Boomer. When Helo was 2 years old he contracted a rare infection in his sinuses. After a procedure to save him, a friend of ours put a CUTE bandana on him to help with the slobber and also dress him up so he looked as cute as he could during a rough time!
I started making my own bandanas for the dogs since they are such large breeds and I wasn't finding any quality or unique bandanas for dogs online or in stores. Everything was either too small, too tacky, or too flimsy. I use carefully chosen fabrics that are quality and complimentary to each other, so they are reversible AND fashionable. Once we started making them, the compliments came rolling in!
Helo unfortunately lost his battle in January of 2015. After a few months with just Boomer, we decided to adopt a pup to make our house whole again. That's where Apollo comes in! He is a pitbull mix and is full of love! We started making bandanas in his size as well, and then came the shop! We decided that dogs of EVERY size should look this good, and founded Good Boy! Dog Apparel in February 2017. In August 2018 we welcomed our baby boy to the family, and now offer baby bib bandanas to match your baby to your fur baby.
We strongly encourage adoption, so part of our mission is to donate bandanas and a portion of sales to our local humane society or other local rescues. That way other pups look their best when meeting their new forever parents and we also help provide supplies the shelters need! The more you shop, the more we donate, so spread the word and the love! ♥
