Drinking Dog & Co. Soy Candles

Welcome to our page!

We are Yvonne and Tara founders of Drinking Dog & Co. Friends for over ten years, we decided to merge our love for dogs, candles, and each other into this company.

Why the name? Well, simply put, we love to have drinks and we love dogs! We thought the name was funny, and it stuck. Now we can't imagine our brand being called anything else! 


Thanks for visiting! We hope you enjoy our candles as much as we do.
