About

Guatemala- The Land of Eternal Spring, Awesome Colors and Exploding Volcanoes

Marjolaine Perrault is a certified veterinary technician from Montreal. She is also a dog trainer, and worked with veterinarians without borders in Guatemala from 2006-2010. She fell in love with Guatemala’s vibrant colored textiles, fresh fruits, flowers and incredible erupting volcanoes and moved to Guatemala in 2011.

After moving to Guatemala started a business called El Chucho Feliz (which translates to the happy pup in Guatemalan slang) El Chucho feliz began in 2012 offering dog training that quickly expanded to doggie play dates and then boarding. She has successfully become second Mom to hundreds of happy dogs! El Chucho Feliz continues to thrive in Antigua, Guatemala to this day.

Marjolaine has a slight obsession with Guatemalan textiles and decided to combine her love for them, with her love for dogs. She is constantly on the hunt in the local markets, buying used textiles from local woman in in order to upcycle these beautiful works of art. She works with local artisans to deliver a beautiful hand made product to customers, and their happy pups! Hope you enjoy her Mayan Dog products created here, in Antigua Guatemala with love!
