Announcement    We are humbled that you found your way to our little store! Thank you for supporting our small business. If you see something hand-dyed that you LOVE...buy it now. We dye fabric in small batches and things go fast. If you are in love with hand-dyed items but don't see a color you want, reach out and let us know and we can shoot you a photo of newly dyed fabric options that are likely not listed in our shop. If you see a collar and are wondering if we have a leash, bow tie or flower to match, chances are that we do. :-) If you have a special event or date in mind when you ABSOLUTELY NEED your order, let us know in advance and we'll work with you to make it happen, otherwise, it may take a few weeks to get to you. We try to update our "SHIP BY" dates... but sometimes find ourselves during spring and fall/winter busy seasons, running behind due to demand and our participation in local events. If we have something in stock, it will ship quickly. If it's a custom request or we don't have it in stock, it could take extra time. If it's important to have something by a certain date, please let us know!!! Thank you so very much!

Love- Michelle, Livy & Emmett

About LivyAndCompany

Sales 1,393
On Etsy since 2015

Two creative sisters, a little rescue dog with BIG ears... and one special flower.

Sisters, Michelle and Natalie, started this small business approximately 6ish years ago. Michelle is currently the primary designer and maker (with Emmett & Livy's moral support and encouragement), while Natalie completes her BFA in ceramics.

Here's our story:

Thanks to our dad, who nurtured our love for dogs growing up, and our mother’s green thumb and passion for beautiful gardens, we knew exactly what we wanted to do…make things for dogs who liked gardening. 🤣

In 2014, Michelle adopted little Olivia (AKA, “Livy”). She was found in a drainage ditch on a very rainy day. To welcome her to our family, Natalie sent Michelle a small red flower that attached to her collar. Whenever she wore that flower people gushed over this scared little boo. They couldn’t help themselves from cooing at her in a high-pitched, sing-songy voice. Michelle is convinced that this red flower helped make Livy the happy, confident diva she is today.

We spent the entire first year designing our branding, figuring out our sales strategy, and researching thousands of other businesses. We bought things, ripped them apart and turned them inside out…we made a list of what we needed to learn. (Like how to sew.🤣🤣🤣)

We named our business, “Livy & Company,” in honor of Olivia, and added the “& Company” to include our other pups and those in our extended world of friends and family.

Sixish years later, here we are! What started as a side hustle for Michelle, is now her primary, full-time focus. We participate in many local events and also sell locally at various boutiques and Noble Dog Hotel. We are continuing to stretch ourselves, learn new things and collaborate with other amazing small business owners and artists every day. Last year, Michelle Iearned how to hand dye fabric. Natalie is back in school working on a BFA in fine arts with a concentration in ceramics. Stella May & Nigel have both earned their wings, and Emmett and George joined our family.

We have cultivated that little red flower into a garden filled with beautiful things we love making, and wake up every day - hearts filled with gratitude and appreciation for what we get to do and whom we get to serve. Best of all, the “And Company” part grows bigger every day, thanks to you. 🐝🌺

Shop members

  • Michelle

    Ring Leader

    Michelle is mother to three amazing furry kids. After 20 years as a creative director, they held a meeting and the kids agreed to do ALL the work for extra treats before letting her throw caution to the wind. (Dogs will say anything for treats.)

  • Olivia

    Marketing Muse

    Olivia, AKA "Livy", is a 7-year-old Chipin and runs this show. She owns her style and knows how to work it. She's sharp and bossy, but her thankful heart shines sweet and bright after being rescued from a life on the streets.

  • Emmett

    Sexy Model

    Emmett's the youngest member of our family. He mostly plays all day, eats, and plays some more. We'll put him to work soon enough, doing something more important than just looking cute.
