The Fashionista Pup Setting Trends in Comfort
A Message From Pixel

"As a canine connoisseur of comfort and style, I, your faithful companion, am here to inspire you on a pawsome journey. Together, let's create wag-worthy spaces for us to relax and unwind. With a paw-some selection of carefully crafted and curated products, we'll prioritize comfort, quality, and sustainability. My mission is simple: to deepen the bond between pets and their humans by making sure we are offering cozy and stylish environments that speak to our unique personalities. So, join me, and let's embark on a tail-wagging adventure where your home becomes the epitome of doggy bliss!"

About Pixel

Pixel is the adorable Mal-shi born in Toronto, Canada on January 9, 2017, and adopted on March 4, 2017. She made the journey across the oceans to UAE in the winter of 2018.

As a diva with a heart full of love, Pixel adores humans, treats, toys, and all things related to home styling. She is incredibly caring and intuitively senses when someone in the home is not feeling their best, offering comfort and support. Pixel takes her role as an older sister to Luna seriously, always keeping an eye out for her.

Pixel's favorite LOG furniture items provide her with cozy spaces to relax in, and she enjoys hiding her toys and treats within them. Inspired by Pixel's need for relief in Dubai's heat, the POG (Paws On Grass) was created as her primary outdoor bathroom solution. Pixel has a 75% success rate with the POG for poop and a perfect 100% for pee.

The Energetic Pup Ruling with a Wagging Tail
A Message From Luna

"To infuse energy, playfulness, and a wagging tail into the pet industry, I bark with delight as we spread happiness and create unforgettable experiences for fellow dogs and our beloved humans. My mission is to promote a vibrant and joyful doggie lifestyle by ensuring we are providing innovative and interactive products that encourage tail-wagging physical and mental stimulation. We bark from the rooftops, championing the importance of play, fun, and unbreakable bonds between dogs and their pawsome families. Woof yeah!"

About Luna

Luna is an albino Maltese born in Dubai, UAE, and adopted on May 11, 2019.

Luna's unique condition as an albino dog, which makes her more sensitive to light and ultraviolet rays, served as a significant motivator for the launch of the Paws On Grass (POG). Due to her sensitivity, Luna is unable to go out in the sun all-year round, inspiring the creation of an accessible and all-natural doggy grass toilet that can be placed on a pet's balcony. The aim was to ensure that no dog has to endure the scorching heat just to relieve themselves.

Luna has a discerning taste for humans and forms strong attachments to the individuals she adores. She has a picky eating habit and is often hesitant to try new foods. Despite their occasional sibling quarrels, Luna holds a special place in her heart for her older sister, Pixel. Whenever it's time to "go in the crate," Luna seeks solace in her beloved LOG dens, which serve as her go-to spots. As the most disciplined POG user, Luna relies on it consistently for both pee and poop. With her territorial nature, she makes sure to mark her presence by peeing again after Pixel has used the POG.
