2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business? I have rescued dogs all of my adult life. Because I would receive dogs in all different conditions, mentally and physically, I wanted them to achieve a healthy restart in life, so I studied canine aromatherapy and holistic care for companion animals, dogs specifically, became certified and began caring for them naturally. My motivation for the business and the reason I founded The Purple Peke is my passion for dogs and a better way to care for them with safe, American made products. The Purple Peke was officially formed in 2005.
3. What products do you make and sell? I make all natural shampoos, massage shampoo bars, flea preventatives, ear, eye, mouth and paw care, wellness products, doggie dream pillows, calming products, grain and dairy free dog cookies and new for 2013 all natural, pet friendly household cleaners.
4. What are your business goals? My goal is to educate dog parents of alternative ways to care for their dog in a safe and better way that is very cost effective and to provide made in America dog products, so pet parents do not have to worry about imported goods that seem to continually be recalled as unsafe and harmful to dogs.
5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden? I use Natures Garden essential oils, soap bases, packaging and now citric acid, herbs and spices.
