Barkley, Wagz, & Our Story


It's all about the dogs.

An offshoot of the Julie Bluet brand, Barkley & Wagz is a family-run design studio based in Virginia. Julie, Ali (aka. Xandra), and Dave are a mother, daughter, & father team. As purveyors of everything dog-centric, the trio pride themselves in running a passion infused business whose handmade products are a favorite for pawlidays, announcements, and so much more.

Inspired by the quirky escapades of their three dogs, Eli the German Shorthaired Pointer and Nutmeg & Lily the Yorkies, they have conceived designs that highlight the varying personalities of dog breeds with digital illustrations, graphics, and typography. These are presented on a wide array of high-quality products, from iPhone cases and notecards to apparel and wall art.

Featured on the Barkley & Wagz logo are two fictional fidos: Barkley & Wagz. The first is depicted in the forefront as the face of a happy canine of no particular breed. He is Barkley, and he represents the pups we own and shower with love. Wagz, the second, is the mysterious dog tail poking into the scene from the left. He is every other dog we enjoy: the ones our friends own, the goofy ones we behold via social media, the ones we dream of having... Together, Barkley & Wagz invite you to cultivate your appreciation for one of these canine clubs, or all of them combined, with a product designed by that same admiration. It is, after all, all about the dogs!

In memory of Nutmeg & Lily, the heart and soul of Barkley & Wagz.
