Nerdy Pug Studios 2.0; In Development

Nerdy Pug Studios: Dog Outfitters, was born from the ashes of a failed attempt at a graduate school class challenge to, "Go Viral." We're proudly based in the historic Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia, the Empire State of the South, as an emerging brand going global one sale at a time.

NPS is a not a collar shop, a pet boutique, or a designer of "luxury" dog items. Our evolving identity is a fusion of multiple stereotypical industry traits, combined with a strong respect and adherence to the empirical and evidence-based practice approach methodologies. We're science geeks, and our creations, particularly our harnesses, are the result of extensive research, development, and prototyping.
