WHO ARE WE?
THE FACE BEHIND BOWIE AND CO
Hi, I'm Abbie, the proud creator of Bowie and Co.
Bowie is my 3-year-old multipurpose service dog. He is a blue merle border collie. He was my inspiration to starting up my online shop, which lead to naming our store Bowie and Co.
As a service dog, Bowie assists me in everyday life to help alleviate the effects of my disabilities. He provides mobility, medical alert, guide and psychiatric assistance.
When off duty, Bowie is a full-time farm dog. He loves chasing the quad bike, swimming in the creek, rolling in mud and playing in the sand.
For everyday use, Bowie needed a fashionable all-purpose waterproof collar, which led us to the discovery of BioThane®.
BioThane is a strong, sturdy, durable material in many beautiful colours. This was a product that so many pets needed in their life, and we knew we had to share it with others.
