About Us

 Hey, there!

I'm Polly and this is my pup, Sadie. To say I'm a little design obsessed would be an understatement. When looking for the must need accessories for my dog, I couldn't find any that were made with materials that I felt matched our lifestyle and home. We are active, but I love clean lines, and neutral colors which can be hard to find in dog accessories. I first thought up The Sunset Hill Collar due to the clean nylon and beautiful colors, and once the brass came to mind, I ordered the supplies, and made it within a couple of days. I made one for myself and a couple for friends, and Ballard Dog Co. was born.


Company Name

I chose to name the company after the neighborhood that I lived in when I adopted Sadie. Living in Ballard for almost 10 years, being able to finally get a dog and share my favorite walk and the colors (and smells for Sadie) of the neighborhood, made me so happy to finally have a best friend to share it all with. While we are not living in Seattle any longer, Ballard will always have a place in my heart, and I'm happy to be able to have a piece of it with me in this venture.


Having this dog with the personality that matches mine, I'm so lucky to be able to share the next decade with her. Adopting a dog has been one of the best decisions that I have made as an adult. I remember getting her and being so grateful that her previous owners left a large bag full of the essentials, and that I was able to have everything already set up for her. 5% of every purchase will go towards a local shelter to ensure that all of the dogs in need receive the care and items for adoption. I will never forget the gift of not only her, but her collar and leash and getting to spend that first day with her (as you can see in our cheesy little faces) without having to worry.
