Aired February 13th, 2021 11:00 am iHeart Radio | Angela Medlin, Owner and Designer of House Dogge. Medlin has three decades of innovative apparel design and leadership experience with global brands that include Nike, Adidas, The North Face, Eddie Bauer, and Levi Strauss & Co. She is career mentor, serves as a design leader on multiple advisory boards.
In 2017, Medlin saw an opportunity to evolve her passion project into an artisanal dog product brand. The initial idea of creating fun toys for her Olde English BullDOGGE, Wubbi, quickly evolved into a bigger vision – to design elevated quality, sustainable dog toys and accessories for everyone. The lifelong creative began unpacking the inspiration she had been collecting from years of world travel and vintage shopping. Hand-crafted materials, alternative textiles, clever packaging, and other items she considered beautiful, meaningful, and purposeful were placed on the wall in her studio. It became apparent Medlin was drawn to the simplicity of design and function. This would become the direction of House Dogge. The brand has been featured in Oprah’s O magazine (Oprah’s Favorite Things 2020), Sunset, Better Homes & Gardens, Design Milk, and others. Consumers can purchase product on HouseDogge.com, dog boutiques, select home interior stores, and design specialty shops. Creating products that support dogs and their people is priority for the House Dogge Brand. The small batch collections continue to evolve prioritizing comfort, sustainability, and modern simplicity.
Currently, House Dogge donates a portion of profits to the NW Dog Project, a small non-profit in Oregon dedicated to rescuing health challenged, homeless, unwanted, neglected, and/or abused dogs. This organization is saving lives and bringing the spark of happiness back to these amazingly resilient dogs.
