At DOGUE HQ, our incredible team members are not alone! Behind each one, you will find an adorable animal with a bark or purr of authority and a heart full of love and cuddles. Meet some of our office dogs and cats, the true guardians of our workspace, keeping us safe from any knocks on the door (beware, delivery drivers)!
Fur-mum: Sim, Founder and Creative Director
Favourite product: Any bed!
Sly's job in the office as Chief Bed Tester is ideal for him, not only because he is the 12-year-old Groodle of DOGUE's Designer Sim, but also because his favourite pastime is sleeping. He is always on top of his game, especially when sampling every bed put in front of him, showing the pros and cons (i.e., he can't fit).
Fur-pawrents: Margaret, CEO and Adrian, Strategic Manager
Breed: Border Collie crossed with Labrador x Kelpie
Favourite product: Currently DOGUE Glamour Collar
Lemmy is a working Diva. She loves giving moral support to the team at the Retreat by encouraging barks and racing up and down along the fences. Lemmy gets on very well with resident chickens and other bird life.
Fur-mum: Charlotte, Online and Wholesale Coordinator
Favourite product: Essential raincoat
Bonnie likes napping, sardines, car rides, peas and, weirdly ... going to the vet! Her dislikes include the rain and delivery people.
Fur-mum: Hanna, HR and Recruitment Manager
Favourite product: Gingham Bed
Benji's favourite things include munching on scrumptious pig ears, going for exciting walkies, and going on adventures like hiking or spending time by the ocean. Puppacinos and the lingering taste of acai bowl leftovers are a favourite, whilst undivided attention is a must. Benji is not a fan of being alone. He craves the comforting presence of hoomans. Lying down in the car isn't his idea of fun. Benji lends a paw by alerting the HQ team when the postman arrives, ensuring every package is noticed. He also gently reminds us to take breaks, urging us to get up and embrace the refreshing outdoors.
Fur-mum: Amelia, Business Development Manager
Name: Diesel AKA Big Brown Dog, D, Deezey, Smoosh
Favourite product: Bazza the Platypus – he loves some rough play and a snuggle at bedtime
Diesel is an old man now, so while he enjoys his daily walks around the block sniffing trees and butts, his favourite activity is sitting at Amelia's feet when working and licking crumbs off the floor during lunchtime!
Roger and Rafa
Fur-mum: Anna, Marketing and Content Specialist
Brothers from separate mothers, Roger (cat) and Rafa (dog), are best friends. Similar to their sport inspirations, they love chasing tennis balls. Work productivity is maximised by sitting on Anna's lap and refusing to leave. Rafa provides undivided cuddles to hoomans and Roger, while his brother chooses to when he feels like it (always playing hard to get). Like other HQ pooches, they are first to respond to a knock at the door.
