Hi, my name is Jemma and I launched Pawtique on the 9th of February 2021.
I have always had a love for animals especially dogs. I grew up with 2 German Shepherds Ruby and Chopper who I spent all my time with. I studied Animal Care Level 5 and have worked in a dog day-care and dog groomers.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 25 and wasn’t able to continue working as a dog groomer due to cancer treatment. My mother and I were going through cancer treatment at the same time, so we were spending all our time at home. She thought me how to sew by hand and how to use a sewing machine. I started off by making dog bandanas and trying them out on my own dogs and then went on to teach myself how to make dog leads, collars and much more.
I will be 3 years cancer free this year but my mother has since passed away and her strength has inspired me to set up Pawtique.
Pawtique is a small Irish Brand offering high quality pet products. All my products are tried and tested by my own dogs Ruben, Layla and Shelby to ensure the best quality and strength of all our products.
I am so excited to see what the future holds for Pawtique and I am so happy you are part of the Pawtique journey by ordering, sharing photos, following us on social media and even liking my posts.
Thank you so much for all the support and making Pawtique possible.
Jemma, Ruben, Layla and Shelby :)
