Behind The Joyful Pooch


Dogs are the best things in the whole world. And they inspire everything we do and everything we make at The Joyful Pooch, from the ideas for the quotes to the designs themselves. 

Dogs are a constant, incredibly awesome presence in our lives, and we guess- yours too. 

We celebrate them every day at The Joyful Pooch. Come join us. 


ALL of The Joyful Pooch products are conceived of and designed by independent artists in beautiful San Diego California, a paradise for the lucky dogs who live there.

You won’t find any generic dog designs purchased from fiverr accounts or bulk t-shirt graphics companies on And you won’t find designs that you can get anywhere else.

Every dog-inspired design is lovingly crafted over the course of several hours, and in the case of our Doggo Manifesto™ poster, two solid days of creating pixel-perfect designs.

The Joyful Pooch designers are dog lovers themselves, and use and wear the products they sell.
