Our Story

As professional snugglers in the midst of a global pandemic, Ernie and I spent most days bundled up in our apartment. Working from home and social distancing meant that I could fill my apartment with candles, mixing scents and creating the perfect ambiance for my home office. As much as I loved walking into my perfectly scent curated living room, I was always concerned about how it might affect Ernie. 

After hearing some nightmare stories about toxicity poisoning, we knew we needed a dog friendly candle that is safe for ALL members of our household and also matched our decor! So we did our research and started crafting soy candles in our kitchen. 

We’re thrilled to share our pup friendly solution with other dog lovers. Enjoy Ernesto’s Candles with the peace of mind that every single candle and wax melt is handmade with your pup in mind.
