Read on for the best dressed sustainable pooches, where to walk your dog in Sydney and fun retro vibes as the welcome you to The Pack!
Tell us a little about a Pack of Mine. What was the inspiration behind starting your business and who’s in the pack?
Pack of Mine was founded by two gals who share the same passion and love for fashion, the environment and of course, animals! We’re deeply inspired and motivated by the sustainability movement & embedding these values into our products; whether it be through eco friendly fabrication, local manufacturing or a combination of both!
EVERYONE is welcome in The Pack!
Being brand new to Finders Keepers what can shoppers expect to discover at your stall?
Shoppers can expect environmentally conscious pet tees and bandanas in a variety of sustainable fibres such as hemp, organic cotton and recycled cotton featuring our playful retro sport inspired logos & colourful combos. Our Lonewolf knits are made from repurposed knitwear, hand made and one of a kind will also be available. Everything is proudly made locally in Sydney, Australia. There will be something for everyone!
What do you love about Sydney and where’s your go-to dog walking/playing spots?
The best thing about Sydney is its versatility, variety and the laid-back vibes. From the beaches to the hikes, the parks to the cafes, you can hop in your car and drive as little or as much as you like & find something new and exciting to do. My boys (Meeko the Samoyed and Finnegan the Aussie Doodle) love to get outdoors, go for swims and make new friends.
Some of their go to spots are:
To meet new friends: Sydney Park in Alexandria, Cafe Bones/The Bay Run
For a swim: Kurnell Beach, Sirius Cove, Blackwattle Bay
An adventure: Narrabeen Lagoon Walk, Two Creeks Track
What’s your top tips for keeping your dog happy and looking good, of course?
1. An unlimited amount of love, hugs & praise!
2. Lots of healthy (tasty) treats & a good diet
3. Regular walks/exercise & socialising
4. All the attention you can possibly give them!
5. And although my boys would strongly disagree.. a good bath & groom keeps them looking and feeling fresh and amazing!
