Debbie Guardian is president and founder of Opie & Dixie®, a pet product line that focuses on natural and USDA Certified Organic healing balms, grooming aids and non-dietary care solutions designed for pets and tested by humans. As a child growing up in various countries throughout Latin America and the Far East, Debbie’s family always included many interesting pets – cats, dogs, parakeets, fish, turtles, a white mouse, and at one point, a parrot. Her lifelong compassion for animals led Debbie to explore holistic pet care for her beloved Dachshund-Lab rescue mixes, Opal (Opie) and Dixie. The more she studied, the more impassioned and knowledgeable she became about the subject of animal wellness. It was this passion that in 2008 led her to develop her own line of all-natural, chemical-free skin care treatments and grooming products for dogs and cats.
While Debbie’s beloved Opie recently departed the land of earthly fire hydrants and dog parks for off-leash romps amid the clouds, Dixie, Nu, and husband, Alex remain by her side for inspiration and to share her love, ideas, and new products with.
