Soggy Doggy Productions opened in 2010, thanks to my four kids and my unruly rescue pup, Buddy. The original Soggy Doggy Doormat® was created out of necessity. No matter how many rags, towels, and mats I left by the back door there was an endless mess in my house. And no matter how many times I begged or yelled, my kids would not use the old towels to wipe Buddy’s paws. After searching pet stores and hardware stores for a viable solution and coming up empty handed, I decided to make my own doormat specifically for wet, dirty dog paws.
