ABOUT GOODBOY

Founded in 2018, GOODBOY caters to those who have an active and stylish life, dogs included. GOODBOY is your go-to e-shop for playfully curated women’s lifestyle and dog goods, so you and your best friend look amazing, no matter where the day’s walk takes you.

GOODBOY founder, Hailey York, knows two things: fashion and dogs. Growing up, she was exposed to the fashion world through her grandparents’ beloved Montreal boutique Ingrid—named after her great grandmother—and her mother’s eventual foray into the industry. The only thing that tops York’s fashion fetish is her love of dogs. Her two pups, Rems & Penelope, are the stars of their own personality-filled Instagram account, @remsandfriends, which has developed a cult following and allowed York to connect with like-minded, fashion-forward dog-lovers all over the world.

After completing her MBA at the Schulich School of Business, York’s entrepreneurial spirit inspired her to combine these two passions with her dream of opening a boutique, just like her grandparents—and so her new baby, GOODBOY, was born.
