Who is Behind the Scenes?
My name is Amanda and I am the founder, creator, designer, marketer, and everything in between. I am The Crazy Dog Mom.
Me in a nutshell...
I love my dog, Kiara, more than anything in the world! I enjoy spending my pass time reading while wrapped in a blanket with a hot cup of tea, listening to (and fantasizing about) Eminem, traveling the world, or exploring nearby trails with my boyfriend and Kiara. I am very passionate about all animals, especially dogs and elephants! (I know, what a combination!)
I am not an expert, I'm just sharing my personal experiences as a dog mom.
I'm just here trying to make a difference in the world for dogs and dog moms.
My fur-assistant, Kiara.
Kiara was born in September of 2010 and I have had her since she was 8 weeks old.
(Yes, I did buy her from a breeder. This was back before I realized how important it is to adopt. But, I wouldn’t change it for the world because she is the best dog I could have ever asked for.)
She is my best friend, my child, and my partner in crime. I look at her and my heart swells with all the love I have for her. And every time I think I am so lucky to have her in my life and I will do anything to give her the best life she could imagine.
The Crazy Dog Mom Shop
Animals have always been a passion of mine but I was never able to figure out exactly how I could help or make a difference. Then I started The Crazy Dog Mom Shop in December of 2016, although back then it was called Barking Crafts and only consisted of wooden dog leash holders.
But even back then, I knew I wanted to eventually donate a portion of my earnings from my shop to help dogs in need. After quite a few adjustments, and a couple names later, The Crazy Dog Mom was officially born. Now the shop is filled with apparel, accessories, and home decor for crazy dog moms, and I couldn't be happier.
Even more important, since February 2018, 10% of proceeds are donated to local animal shelters to help dogs in need. Finally, my dream of helping animals has come true and I hope you will help me help them.
Let's face it, life as a dog mom can get pretty difficult.
On the blog you will be able to find tips and tricks, DIY crafts, recipes, and more.
These are all shared through my experiences as a crazy dog mom.
My goal is to help dog moms like you, and try to make life a little bit easier by providing support and inspiration.
