Meet Ann Kornelsen of Voyagers K9 Apparel in Oceanside

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ann Kornelsen.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Ann. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
In 1993, we began making canine wear out of a desire to protect our beloved dogs because, at the time, the available clothing did not suit the needs of our dogs.

When we first started making dog apparel, our company was known as Voyagers Greyhound Apparel. With the inception of Voyagers Greyhound Apparel, our goal was simply to fill the need for good quality coats and clothing for greyhounds—coats that would fit the unique shape of this specific breed.

In 2006, we decided to expand the dog coat line to other breeds due to customer requests. Since then, we have expanded to 22 breed specific coats as well as offering custom coats for all dogs. We know how important it is to protect your dog with quality and comfort.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
As a small business owner, we have been blessed with immense growth although there have been some growing pains. Over the years, it’s been a pleasure to work with people that have a heart to adopt.

Please tell us about Voyagers K9 Apparel.
We make dog coats to protect your dog with quality and comfort. We offer breed specific and custom coats for every shape and size.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
For us, we have been blessed with organic and sustainable growth. We wouldn’t necessarily do things differently, but as mentioned, our small business lessons have helped us to grow both personally and professionally.
