Our Story

The Dapper Pup was founded by Myself (Emily) and Jesse after we were medical retired from the Australian Army. Having done volunteer work with the Sydney dogs and cat shelter through the Army we were eager to get a puppy of our own. Just before my 3rd hip surgery we got Ollie, a tiny toy ruby cavoodle from a beautiful local breeder.

Ollie was so tiny he couldn’t fit into any of the dog accessories from the store, so we decided to start making Ollie whatever he needed.  Having a dog has helped us tremendously through our transition back to civilian life and helped us deal with the physical and mental scars left behind from service.

We have chosen to support the defence community dog program. The program adopts dogs from local shelters, then they are trained by inmates at the Bathurst correctional centre and are then handed over to eligible veterans suffering from PTSD.

Our Ollie

Ollie is the Pup behind the Dapper Pup brand. We Brought Ollie home in August of 2018 to our home on the Sunshine Coast.

From the first day we had Ollie he has brought so much joy and love into our lives.

He is happy to just chill with us all day while we work or come adventuring when we go out.

We try and get down to the dog beach as much as possible to throw the ball so if your ever at Currimundi dog beach be sure to say hello.

Ollie personally tests every single product we make and  If it’s not good enough for Ollie we go back to the drawing board.

Our Honey

Meet our newest member to the family Little miss Honey.

We brought her home from a breeder in Brisbane on the 11th March and she is loving spending time with Mr Ollie.

Honey is a first generation cavoodle and a very rich ruby colour. I cant wait to dress her up in all out girly products!
