WHO ARE WE?

THE FACE BEHIND BOWIE AND CO

Hi, I'm Abbie. I am 20 years old, and the proud creator of Bowie and Co. 

Bowie is my 2 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 every day life to help alleviate the affects 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 lead us to the discovery of BioThane®.

BioThane is a strong, study and durable material that comes in many beautiful colours. This was a product that so many pets needed in their life, and we knew we had to share with others.
