Welcome to Opie & Dixie

Holistic, USDA Certified Organic, cruelty-free and vegan grooming aids for dogs and cats.

In 2008, while I cooked healthy, home-cooked meals for Opal (Opie) and Dixie, I knew that home-cooked meals often lack the vital nutrients an animal needs to thrive. Unable to find a 100% natural supplement with nutrients essential to animals and safe for humans, I was inspired to create my own. So I researched thoroughly, consulted with veterinarians, stocked up on ingredients, and began experimenting in my tiny San Francisco kitchen.

As we near our 25th year in business, I have since discontinued the supplement. Still, in keeping with my philosophy of safe, natural ingredients fit for both pets and humans, today we boast a line of USDA Certified Organic, cruelty-free remedies, such as our popular balms, ear wash, shampoos, and conditioners. 

Opie and Dixie have granted their approval from Dog Heaven, and I have partnered with my brother, Richard, a fellow pet lover to manage our ever-growing family business. My Basset Hound rescues, Canyon and Rosie, love our ear wash for their long, floppy ears. Meanwhile, my brother’s active rescues, Lily and Jessie, are fans of our shampoos, conditioners, and our healing paw balms for their often-calloused paws. 

We hope you’ll love our products as much as our dogs and we do!
