Our Story

our tail

a tail we could wag creates fun fashion accessories for pets and the people who love them. Since 1988, the casual look, quality craftsmanship, brilliant color and fun-spirit of our products have been inspired by nature itself and a passion for the great outdoors. As you browse our website or catalog you will see the driving force for what we do has always been a genuine love for man’s best friend. We are reminded everyday of their amazing faithfulness, unconditional love and joyful nature. Two decades ago it was a poem by W. H. Auden that really captured the essence of our company and led to our somewhat unusual name; “…in moments of joy, all of us wish we possessed a tail we could wag.”

In partnership with some very special Mayan artisans living in the highlands of Guatemala, we have created a look and feel that is not only unique but helps support their small community. We take the color and texture of the Mayans’ hand-woven crafts , then assemble and finish the products in the US for uncompromising quality and craftsmanship, delivering durable and colorfast products.
