Dream come true
The founder and a Border Collie named Rain crossed paths during the early days of the pandemic. The emotional helplessness and life anxieties brought about by the crisis prompted the founder to reignite her childhood dream - to raise an adorable dog. Thus, she arrived at a kennel.
Lacking experience, she discovered that the kennel was actually a place selling various puppies, many of whom appeared weak and frail. Amidst the crowd of dogs, Rain suddenly approached her, relentlessly scratching and trying to capture her attention. Inspired by Rain's unwavering determination, the founder saw it as a mutual "two-way dedication" and decided to bring Rain home. She named her "Dong Xiaoyu" in Chinese, with the English name Rain.
However, upon Rain's arrival, the founder soon realized that she was sick, constantly coughing and having a runny nose. After taking her to the vet for examination, it was determined that she had severe pneumonia compounded by a canine coronavirus infection, with a grave prognosis and uncertain chances of survival. At that time, Rain was barely two months old.
Through the joint efforts of the founder and the veterinarian, after three weeks of treatment, Rain finally made a full recovery.
It is speculated that due to Rain's premature separation from its mother and the lack of proper training during its puppyhood, it retained many of the herding instincts of a shepherd dog and did not learn how to adapt to the human world. Through the founder's continuous search and learning, and under the guidance of behavior adjustment trainer Mr. Yi Tongmo's scientific methods and positive training, Rain successfully learned how to thrive in the modern human society. This renowned trainer explained to the founder that dogs are actually very intelligent and have been helpful companions to humans for thousands of years. They are unaware that their natural talents are no longer needed in modern human society. What owners need to do is to scientifically, patiently, and methodically teach them how to adapt to the human world.
The founder gained a new understanding of her relationship with Rain and a new perspective on pet ownership. She believes that the relationship between humans and pets is not simply about providing care, but rather a mutual understanding and a healing and companionship between both parties. The love that dogs give to humans is the unconditional acceptance we have always been seeking. The founder embarked on a self-driving journey with Rain, traveling through many places, experiencing different landscapes, accompanying each other through peaks and valleys, and building a deep emotional connection.
They also met many friends who share a love for dogs along the way. At the same time, she discovered that some dog owners faced the same challenge as her: not being able to find the desired dog products. The dog products on the market varied in quality, with well-made ones lacking desirable designs, and aesthetically pleasing options falling short in terms of quality. Additionally, the attention to product details and human touch was often overlooked.
Create a brand
By a fortunate coincidence, the founder decided to create a pet product brand that combines quality and aesthetics, while also considering user-friendliness and practicality. She wanted to help more dog owners with similar needs to find products that they and their dogs would love. She hoped to provide more satisfying choices for pet owners like herself who value the quality, materials, and designs of pet products. She also aimed to offer high-quality, comfortable, and durable dog products to more dogs, accompanying them through a happy and fulfilling life.
