Meet The Founders


“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”

Martina Bio Picture

My name is Martina, one of the founders of Chic Pawz, LLC and this is Kieko, my first dog who instantly had a special place in my heart and was the best birthday present I could have asked for. Kieko loves to cuddle, bark at anything outside, go for adventures, and chew on bones. He is the best little shadow that I have following me around. When I was younger, I used to be scared of dogs, and now I do not think I could ever live without one. The concept of this business came to me when I was inspired by a friend who exposed me to this fashion forward pet niche that was quickly growing. Soon after, I had a vison for an online pet boutique that I couldn’t wait to bring to life. Working with dogs and fashion would be a wonderful opportunity to align two of my passions along with having my mom as a business partner. This is when Chic Pawz, LLC launched, and now we are able to bring customers chic designer pieces to pamper their pup, work with pets, give back to the community with volunteering and monetary donations, and be a part of such an exciting industry that offers so much possibility.


“My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am”

My name is Claudia, one of the founders of Chic Pawz, LLC and these are my two dogs Max and Kea, otherwise known to me as “the people”. I’ve always been a happy dog owner growing up, but a few years ago, I was lucky to have Max and Kea brought into my life. I now find myself having conversations throughout the day with my dogs, which (as many dog owners can agree) are unconditionally happy companions! When the opportunity arose to combine my career experiences and my love for dogs and fashion into one venture, I jumped at the chance to start Chic Pawz, LLC. I’m excited to work with my daughter and my dear dogs in order to share the loving and adorable experience of owning a pet with other pet owners and their furry friends.
