Nat Winter

about us Nat winter

Nat Winter founded Chasing Winter with the belief that the right dog bed should offer comfort and security to every beloved pet while still elevating Australian homes and expressing a dog owner’s style.

With an extensive background in the fashion industry, Nat started her journey as the youngest female accepted into the Auckland Institute of Technology. Her deep knowledge of fashion and design trends has helped create a dog bed line that exudes character but integrates perfectly with your interior design and personal style.

Throughout Nat’s career in fashion, she’s designed for a high street fashion brand, worked for fashion sourcing companies while travelling the world in search of the latest trends, designed for boutique fashion label Sissy (New Zealand), and spent many years as a Brand Manager for a large corporate fashion house. 

After purchasing a block of land on Waiheke Island, New Zealand, Nat discovered her love of architecture and interior design and developed a passion for creating homes that brought her to Queensland to work on private projects, renovating classic Queenslanders.

As a result of her eclectic experience and background, Nat is not generic in style or moulded to any particular look. Instead, she moves with world trends and pulls on a variety of fashionable and classic styles with anything she creates.

Wanting to create a line of dog beds that didn’t force pet owners to choose between chic aesthetics and engineered comfort, Chasing Winter was born.


Gerry Heffernan

about us gerry heffernan

Gerry is the Director of Sales for Chasing Winter.

Gerry’s love of dogs started early in life alongside his childhood companion, Corky the Corgi, and has continued throughout his life. Gerry joined his wife, Nat, in the business after forging a successful career of his own in the construction industry, going on to become a proud ‘dog dad’ to Snoopy, the beagle.

Gerry’s love of architecture and design became apparent when he purchased his first home in the suburb of Ponsonby, New Zealand. In a case of ‘Worst House. Best Street’, Gerry dived into the job of transforming this property, turning a former art student party house into an elegant, classic villa.

With a practical mind, Gerry brings an analytical approach to think through the mechanics of design, assisting Nat throughout much of the design process of Chasing Winters’ signature orthopaedic dog beds.

Fun-loving and with natural charisma in spades, Gerry handles the sales and distribution for Chasing Winter and loves the challenge of growing the business, one quality product at a time.


Snoopy

A rescue beagle puppy, Snoopy is now 11 years old and the inspiration behind Chasing Winter.

After discovering Snoopy had a tumour the size (and weight) of a small pumpkin, long and invasive surgery was required. Frustrated by the quality and support of available dog beds, Snoopy inspired the first prototype Chasing Winter memory foam dog bed.

Fast forward to 2021, and Snoopy is the picture of health, and our range of modern dog beds exist to provide leading orthopaedic support blended with contemporary style perfectly suited to all stylish homes and interior settings.
