Our story


Narelle is the founder and creator of Octavia’s Pup Shop, along with her daughter Courtney.


A unique high quality boutique handmade business of pet fashion, reversible bandanas, with matching accessories for Mum and Dad, matching scrunchies; earrings; keyrings; and face masks.


Octavia’s Pup Shop was created primarily as a learning tool for Narelle's daughter, Courtney, who is homeschooled and is on the Autism Spectrum and finds conventional learning very difficult.


Narelle helped her create this business for hands on learning, and to equip her for her future.


Courtney has achieved so much from handmaking high quality products, bookkeeping, to customer service - selling our unique products at local markets. And now Narelle is a FINALIST in 3 national 2021 Ausmumpreneur Award catagories - Disabled Business Excellence Award, Fashion Business Award and Handmade Business Award. 

Courtney has since finished school and is now a barista for a local café and is dreaming of becoming an internationally certified barista.

Narelle has continued the business as the demand for these gorgeous products has exploded. Courtney is still involved in a limited capacity.

Thank you for your support of Courtney through your understanding, sharing our social media and tagging us on Instagram, buying our products and visiting our stall. It means the world to Narelle and Courtney.
