Our Story

A big warm hello and woof to you!
LapdogNationOwners
We’re Matt and Gabby, a Brisbane based couple who are dog obsessed (dog-sessed)! We’re wildly passionate about feeding, grooming, and spoiling our furry friends with unique and quality products, which we’re thrilled to share with you!
Our journey…

We’ve always had a deep love and respect for animals and have been blessed with loveable family pets throughout our young lives.
Our love for canine companions truly blossomed when we welcomed Rosie, our sweet Boston Terrier, into our hearts and home in 2013.
Along with filling our world with immense joy, love and laughter, she has changed our lives beyond our wildest dreams.
Inspired by our love of Rosie, in 2015 we founded Rosie and Co Barkery, launching our signature range of handmade, all natural gem shaped treats – aptly named ‘Rosie Rocks’.

Along with Rosie being the face of our brand, she was also the catalyst in us creating nutritional treats to share with all of our pooch pals.
Through Rosie and Co, we’ve been able to create and connect with a network of dog-loving humans across the globe. This led us to cross paths with the lovely Michelle who is the original founder of LapDog Nation.
The Early Days of LapDog Nation…

Similar to our journey, Michelle’s inspiration was originally fuelled by her two adorable Griffons, Coco and Arnie. It was during her adventures through Europe where she was captivated by the stylish products available for dogs overseas. She was instantly motivated to deliver a new level of sophisticated canine-fashion to both Australia and New Zealand. This saw the inception of LapDog Nation, an interconnected platform for dog loving owners to spoil their best friend in unique clothes and accessories.
The Here and Now – Our Vision…

We’re beyond excited to continue Michelle’s vision as the new owners and driving force behind LDN.
Coupled with our enthusiasm, we proudly and passionately source the finest products from around the globe, delivering high quality, trendsetting products to your doggy door.
A Little More About Us…

When we’re not spoiling or obsessing, crafting or creating, you can find us spending sunshiny days on the beach, kayaking through serene waters or taking Rosie on strolls amongst mama nature.
There’s something about sunshine, salt water and sloppy dog kisses that are damn good for the soul.
Endless gratitude for your support in helping us bring our passion to life!
