About K9 Bytes and Shannon Barnard
Shannon Barnard is Founder and Creative Designer for K9 Bytes. She lives in Roseburg, Oregon with her husband, Kent and English Cocker Spaniel, Rogue.
Shannon earned a degree from the Art Institute of Seattle and then bought a computer business and learned website design. She started making dog and cat
collars more than 12 years ago as a creative outlet which combined her love of pets and arts and crafts.
“It all began with a pattern for fabric dog and cat collars. I knew I had to make some. Then I created a website and they sold! I stitch these collars
with love. It brings me great pleasure to share my love of dogs and cats with fun, functional products. I enjoy picking out new fabrics to make collars that
allow pet parents to express their love for their pets.”
Shannon is a Professional Member of Women in the Pet Industry and has been featured in their Top Women in the Pet Industry magazine.
