About Fetch The Sun

Based in sunny San Diego, California, our family-owned and operated company is dedicated to creating high-quality, stylish, and eco-friendly apparel for dogs and humans who love adventure. Established in 2019, Fetch The Sun has become the ultimate lifestyle brand for awesome adventure dogs (and their people) worldwide.

Our passion for dogs and the great outdoors inspired us to start Fetch the Sun. Tired of searching for outdoor clothing with a dog theme and finding nothing, we decided to take matters into our own hands. And that's when Fetch the Sun came to life! In just a short span of four months, we trademarked our brand and launched our first two collections: No Ruff Waves and Tails on the Trails. Given our love for hiking and surfing with our dogs, these lines were a perfect fit. The response was incredible, confirming the high demand from all you amazing Dog Moms and Dog Dads out there. What began as a side project quickly transformed into a full-fledged business venture, and we couldn't be happier.

We're thrilled to be constantly expanding our product lines and finding new ways to grow. Join us in embracing the adventurous spirit and celebrating the bond between humans and their four-legged friends. Fetch the Sun is here to make outdoor adventures even more stylish and memorable. So, grab your pup, get outside, and let the adventures begin!

Our Process

Fetch the Sun is all about encouraging an active lifestyle for dogs. Our goal is to make sure that humans and their furry friends can explore the outdoors together in style and comfort. We take pride in creating high-quality apparel with a focus on sustainability and ethical production methods. From graphic design to product development and delivery, we strive to provide our customers with the best experience possible. Click on the arrows below and let us show you how we do it!

Step 1: Creating the Graphics and Color Selection

We believe that sharing an active lifestyle with our dogs provides many health benefits for both them and us. That's why at the very first step of product development, we incorporate graphic elements of outdoor adventures that can be easily shared with our dogs. Our philosophy is that by promoting outdoor adventures through our products, we're making dogs happier and improving the world for them. Each bolt of fabric used in creating our apparel is dyed specifically for Fetch The Sun. We handpick the most vibrant, on-trend colors around and integrate them into every piece of our apparel.

Meet the Founders

Steve and Jennifer Ryan, husband and wife, are the co-founders of Fetch The Sun. They have always been fascinated by the outdoors and their passion for exploring new places is only exceeded by their love for dogs. Steve, a retired naval officer, and Jennifer, a marketing executive, established Fetch The Sun in 2019 when they noticed a lack of quality apparel that reflected a love of dogs and outdoor adventure.

They believe that with every purchase, customers should receive an amazing product and a great experience. That’s why they have created apparel that's comfortable and stylish, while also giving back to the community through animal shelter donations. They strive to make Fetch The Sun a brand that everyone can be proud of from its products, to its approach on sustainability, to its commitment to helping animals in need.

We Want All Dogs to Fetch The Sun

As we look forward, the future of Fetch the Sun looks brighter than ever, and we invite you to join us on this incredible journey!
