About

Hi, I'm Megann

And I'm obsessed with dogs...

which isn’t surprising since I have a WHOLE business revolving around dogs! When I’m not designing dog products, you can find me rocking a baby Yoda sweatshirt, frolicking at the beach with my dog Ollie, and doing my best Gandalf impression for my husband Eben. 

My nickname growing up was tornado child, and I can be a bit on the intense with a certain “zest” for life.  I listen to my music LOUD with the windows rolled down, and ask a million questions during movies (but seriously, how EXACTLY was Elsa born a spirit in Frozen 2?!?). My favorite season is summer, and I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan!

The Founding Story

In 2018 Ollie outgrew his service dog in training vest...

and every waitlist for a custom vest was at least 3 months. So like any good DIYer, I decided I would make one myself. But first, I had to actually learn how to sew! After a few months of guidance from my mom and YouTube I was regularly designing Ollie new vests, bandanas, and collars.  Then, something happened that surprised me…people started asking me where they could get dog gear like mine!  And that’s how The Atomic Hound was born.  

Got Chronic Health Issues?

I've got a heart for you!

Struggling with health issues for most of my life has given me some serious  empathy for anyone who also lives with physical, mental, or emotional health issues. Every person’s story will be different BUT something I’ve realized over years of talking to other people with health issues is that most of us deal with verrrry similar challenges and feelings deep down. Here’s a few you might be familiar with: feelings of isolation, poor self esteem, financial struggles, relationship issues, lack of career/career path, etc. Ringing any bells? My hand is raise FOR SURE…
 
One of my goals for The Atomic Hound in 2020 is to share resources that can help you live your best life…even with those issues! It’s HARD to not feel well for weeks, months, or years, and I hope that I can be a source of encouragement and hope for you as you go through life!
