I have been around dogs all my life having raised National Champion Arabian horses with my family where we lived on 55 acres in Connecticut and had five to six dogs running around constantly, from Newfoundlands to German Shepherds and Blood Hounds to Labradors. I had been thinking about starting the Dakota Dog Company, named after my beloved Boxer Dakota for several years but just never got it off the ground. In 2011 she became very sick and has almost died on me four times over three years as she had an auto immune disease called Thrombocytopenia (basically her immune system kills off her white blood cells). It's was a battle but she gotten better and stronger every day and once again taught me a valuable lesson, 'tomorrow is not guaranteed and appreciate what you have today.'
I also want to introduce Montana, Kota's 'Lil Sister', who was a Christmas gift from my Mom and arrived via special truck delivery on Christmas Eve 2012 all the way from Kansas! We have added to our pack with the addition of Sedona from Boxers of Palo Mesa in California, she arrived on November 5th, 2014!
Our beautiful Dakota left us on December 19th, 2016, she is an Angel watching over us every day and I collect your pennies pretty girl and please know how much we miss you!
And now in 2020 we are joined by Sequoia, also from Boxers of Palo Mesa, our little one that we waited 3 1 /2 to come into our lives.
The idea behind the Dakota Dog Company is to provide the best of the best for pups everywhere, from the most wholesome treats to wonderful toys to captivate their attention, and beautiful apparel all at affordable prices! I wanted a store that carried things we use and believe in and dog owners really want and need. So here we are, The Dakota Dog Company!
We hand pick each product to be featured in our store, only the highest quality, best ingredients and most wonderful products and much more that we have actually tested ourselves and absolutely love, all Dakota, Montana, Sedona & Sequoia approved of course!
Thanks for visiting our site and we'll see you around the dog park!
CJ, Dakota, Montana, Sedona & Sequoia
