Original, handcrafted accessories for dogs
classic style • subtle design details • rooted in tradition and heritage
Oxford Dogma is a handmade workshop of one (well, one maker + two goofy and adorable rescue dogs). I design and make timeless accessories for people who are crazy in love with their dog and want to feel like good pet parents. My focus is on classic design and careful craftsmanship because I believe there should be more special, memorable, and lasting things in the world. Just like the unconditional love between dogs and their humans.
With each purchase, I donate to a local shelter to help more pets in need feel loved.
What makes us happier than our pets?
The deep, permanent relationship filled with unconditional love completes me in a way that nothing else does. (Some people have kids, but I'm a pet person.) And when someone brings me that much joy, I want them to have the best.
After adopting our dog, Pipsqueak, I realized that I could combine my love for making useful things with my love for her. What started with a homemade biscuit and DIY jacket soon developed into a plan for Oxford Dogma, a home where I could design and craft jackets, leashes, and other accessories for dogs and their humans that help strengthen their bond and foster meaningful experiences.
I design and make tailored accessories for people who are head over heels about their dog and want to feel like good dog parents, and for discerning people who:
- care about details
- want to participate in the shift from anonymous, mass-produced, low-quality products
- want to fill a need with something special instead of just something
- appreciate a slower and more intentional experience
The day I found Pipsqueak was my first time at an animal shelter. This visit left me with a hunger to do more to help animals in need. As much as I wanted to, it wasn't feasible to adopt every cat and dog in the place. So by selling my handmade goods I'm able to support shelters through donations.
I believe it's not about having more, but that it's about having better and doing good.
