Our Story | Chasing Winter Dog Accessories

Hi, we're Chasing Winter

We believe the products you purchase for your beloved pooch should be functional and fashionable. That’s why we design quality pet accessories that complement modern pet owners’ spaces and styles.

To us, life is better with dogs. Living with them, literally, can be a beautiful thing, too. Our collection of luxury dog beds - perfect for your home and custom-designed for your pup - is only the beginning of our vision to connect fashion-forward pet owners with quality pet products they love.

Made from high quality materials, Chasing Winter designs can stand the test of time with even the cheekiest of furry friends. After all, dogs will be dogs. That’s why we love them, and that’s why we think they deserve the best.

Why sacrifice elegance for endurance when you can enjoy both? Our collections are suited for stylish homes and humans alike, and their durability means you won’t have to replace them year on year.

our-true-life-story

Like many great stories, ours is one of finding joy amid adversity. As a young couple, we were hopeful parents-to-be. However, as the months we spent trying to conceive slowly trickled into years, we began to lose hope. To help alleviate some of the pain we felt during this unexpected and difficult time in our lives, our IVF specialist suggested we adopt a puppy.

So, just a few months later, we welcomed our own little bundle of joy into our lives: a 9-week-old rescue beagle puppy we named Snoopy. Arriving by plane in a crate 100 times his size, little Snoop-dog stole our hearts as soon as he stumbled out into our arms. While not how we had originally envisaged, our new family was perfect in its own way.

As all parents know, caring for children (fur or no) is no walk in the park! Adding to the not-so-fun task of toilet training, shoe eating and food-stealing activities, we quickly became frustrated at the quality of dog products available to us. Either they barely lasted longer than an actual walk in the park, or they didn’t fit aesthetically into our home in Australia; “Don’t forget to hide the dog bed,” we’d say, whenever we were expecting company, and one of us would ditch the ugly, smelly, worn-out dog bed in the cupboard under the stairs. 

That’s when our love of Snoop-dog, and my background in fashion and design, inspired us to create our own collection of dog beds. But just as our first prototypes landed, our world crashed before our eyes.

Snoopy had collapsed.

We soon discovered Snoopy had a tumor in his spleen the size and weight of small pumpkin, and that it was likely cancerous. His surgery to remove it was long and invasive. We were told to expect the worse, but after a nail-biting 5 hours, the surgery was a success. Still, the hours following at home were touch-and-go, as his little body had to figure out how to function without a spleen to keep him alive. Tick tock went the clock… it seemed an eternity. We’d lay him flat on his side on the memory foam prototype bed to rest; Nat actually slept on it with him all night, arms wrapped around him to keep him warm and nurtured.

Gerry and I would like to pause our story right here and take a moment to thank our local veterinary surgeon who saved Snoopy’s life, as well as the staff at our local café for keeping Snoopy motivated during his recovery with their endless dog treat temptations. Just so you know, he’s totally faking it now; he’s been clear of any health issues for quite some time, but his cheeky Beagle nature is playing on everyone’s sympathy.

During this stressful time, Gerry and I fully realized the health benefits of the orthopedic memory foam that had assisted in Snoopy’s restful, relaxed and speedy recovery. We realized how important it was to incorporate well-researched technical product design into our own designs, so that we could deliver an incomparable sleep experience to support dogs like Snoopy.

And so we designed our signature dog bed, The Cloud Dog Lounge, made lovingly and thoughtfully, from quality materials to support your dog, while remaining beautiful too, suited for stylish homes like yours. After all, as an interior designer, I had been helping others create attractive spaces for years; why couldn’t living with pets be attractive, too?   

That’s how Chasing Winter was born.

It was the answer to our own problem, but we had leagues of dog lovers like ourselves in mind, those who love not only their furry friends but also their fashion and expressing themselves through style.  

Now, we are living our dream, designing beautiful accessories for dogs that pooch parents will love, too.

Where to Next?

Chasing Winter’s signature collection of luxury dog beds is just our beginning. We are excited to introduce quality pooch accessories of all kinds into our repertoire very soon.

Stay tuned.
