Welcome to Opie & Dixie

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


Opie &  Dixie arose out of a focus on the well-being of my own dogs, Opal (Opie) and Dixie. My life revolves around my pets, and I insist on nothing but the best for them, be it the highest quality, 100% natural foods and healthcare products, or the most exciting outdoor adventures. With few all-natural, holistic foods on the market, I began preparing homemade, veterinarian-formulated meals for Opal and Dixie, mixing in a supplement I developed using a base of flaxseed, lecithin, kelp and other nutrients. 

The next thing I knew, I was sharing baggies of my supplements with friends and neighbors, all of whom convinced me to start selling it. In 2008, I loaded the trunk of my car with my newly trademarked and packaged supplement and began peddling it around to my local San Francisco pet boutiques. And so, Opie & Dixie was born! Although we no longer sell the supplement, as the company blossomed, we developed and launched a new line of products. Organic, Leaping Bunny-certified, cruelty-free shampoos, conditioners, ear wash, and in particular, our unique, popular healing balms.g

While Opal and Dixie have since ventured over the Rainbow Bridge and are now romping around in the green, lush dogpark in the sky, Canyon and Rosie, my Basset Hound rescues, and Jessie and Bailey, my brother Richard's rescues, are enjoying Opal and Dixie's legacy.

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