The Short Story behind Mattey’s Mutts - Named after my late “dream dog”, Mattey, Mattey’s Mutts of Palm Springs grew out of a desire for a pet vest (some call it a “harness”) that embodied function, fashion, and safety, was comfortable, convenient, embodied quality materials and construction, and would make it easy to lift and carry your small breed dog or cat.

Time and again products that I purchased were disappointing - nothing on the market met my requirements. So, following a summer road trip with our dogs, Bodhi and Shanti, I decided that” I can do it better”. I “harnessed” my business and design background and in January 2018 Mattey’s Mutts was born in La Quinta, CA. Less than a year later and with 50+ designs in 2 fabric options to choose from, Mattey’s Mutts is now available on our website,, and on Facebook and Instagram.
