"Who the hell would buy these things?" followed by a laugh is a typical response my brother and I have when our mother, Kate, presents us the latest Prima Dog innovations: a shark pet bed! Bow ties for pets!! Doggy and kitty Helmets!!! And look who's laughing now?
Kate and her partner, Nedrumpai, have been coming up with Prima Dog's silly products since the 90's. They have been featured on television and popular websites around the world. Pop star Katy Perry tweeted a picture of her cat, Kitty Purry, in our Shark Pet Bed; it went viral, and we sold out within minutes. Their latest product the Primadog Dog Helmet for Pets was recently on America’s Funniest Home Videos. Kate is an entrepreneur and a single mother from Bangkok, Thailand. She started with a small gift shop operation in the city and then expanded into producing and exporting handicraft products to clients around the world. She then relocated to New York in early 2000 and brought with her the brand Prima Dog. Kate has promised her BFF (Nedrumpai) she'll make Prima Dog known in the US.
She opened a few stores in Manhattan. Closed down a few. Prima Dog went through its ups and downs, but Kate is undeterred. She puts her energy into developing this website and slowly, its online sales thrives. She's delighted to hear stories or see pictures of Prima Dog products from her customers. She finds joy every time a new prototype of Prima Dog products arrived. She answers every e-mail, packs every order and delivers them herself at the Queens' local post office.
In her spare time, you can find Kate hanging out with her friends at the dog parks around New York City. She's currently honing her chops on social media platforms and responding to her client's growing demands online. Please say hi to Kate on
