I’ll never forget the first party I hosted. I had worked hard to get everything just right. One of my “friends” walked in, ignored the fresh cut flowers on my table, as well as the delicious food, and announced that my house smelled like dogs. Even though she is infamous for being rude, her words made my cheeks flush with embarrassment and anger. Although it pains me to admit it, she was probably right. Ever since then, I’ve tried harder to keep my house clean and fresh while still treating my dogs like family. Thanks to my sister, Alice G Patterson Photography, for the photos!

Since many air fresheners and candles are toxic to pets, I’ve been leery of using them around my dogs. The last thing I want to do is make my dogs sick!
Soy candles from Wear Wag Repeat are a great and safe way to make my house smell better. I love them for so many reasons! Hand made in Colorado by a dog mom, all of these candles smell great, burn cleanly, and are eco-friendly.
Who could resist a candle named Puppy Breath? In addition to having an irresistible name, Puppy Breath also neutralizes odors, which makes it the perfect candle to light when you have wet dogs or rude friends.
- 8 oz. of Soy Wax
- Hand-poured in the USA
- Scented with Pure Essential Oils
- 100% Cotton Wick
- Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Manufacturing
- Made by a Dog Mom
Each order also comes with these awesome wooden matches. They are extra long, so you don’t have to worry about burning your fingers when you light the wick.
There are three great scents available: Puppy Breath (a delightful combination of lemongrass, rosemary, and peppermint), Zoomies (tall grass), and Wet Noses (spiced cider.) All of them have a fresh fragrance that is pleasant, but not overpowering, and perfect for just about anyone, even someone who doesn’t have dogs.
Almost two years ago, I met Tori, the founder of Wear Wag Repeat and her Lab, Lucy, at a pet blogging conference. Tori is a proud dog mom with an infectious smile and a great sense of style. When I found out she was opening up a shop for dog lovers, I knew I would love the products. Like so many of us, Tori is obsessed with dogs and knows that they are family. Check out some of her other selections! Wear Wag Repeat Shop supports local rescues through donations and fundraising.
As a reminder, please use common sense whenever you have lit candles. Make sure they are out of your pet’s reach and never leave a burning candle unattended. (Teach your dogs not to play with matches!)
Although my house has gone to the dogs, it doesn’t smell like it anymore!
