Runaway Train

Most people who find out I have a business selling dog beds say, jokingly, “one day you just decided to start a dog bed business?” I usually say, seriously, “yeah, pretty much.” Then I proceed, with as few words as possible, to explain the actual reason why I dove into this little business of dog beds (not so little it turned out).

Why Dog Beds?

I began sewing sheets for my dogs’ beds about 5 years ago after realizing that I needed a cover that was easy to wash. It was a runaway train from there. Seriously, I couldn't get this fabulous idea out of my head. Slowly, I began to take it to the next level, over and over and over again, until Luca For Dogs was born.

People who know me know that I can become a little obsessed when I really want something. In my early twenties, it was a red jeep wrangler, and now in my thirties it’s dog beds. (With two kids in between.)

I honestly cannot live without my dog bed sheets, and that’s why I started Luca. I love my home, but I'm definitely not obsessed with cleaning it. I just appreciate when something makes my life a little easier. If you appreciate a beautiful home, don’t enjoy the thought of washing your dog beds, and most importantly, love your precious pets, you will appreciate Luca dog beds.
