Hi! I'm Jisuk, Founder of million dogs.

Hi! I’m Jisuk, founder of Million Dogs. I’ve been making unique and comfortable healing cone for dogs and cats since 2016. 

When I was 13, I learned to make women’s clothes on an antique sewing machine my grandmother gave me. It didn’t even have a motor, but I was determined to make it work!

After that, I was hooked. So I studied art and fashion design in college.

And went on to work in fashion at major corporations. I loved being creative and making pretty stuffs, but I felt like something was missing and wanted to find something more meaningful.

Meaningful = ?

While I was working at one of these corporations, my family dog underwent a procedure and had to wear a plastic cone. He was so tiny at the time, and I could tell the cone made him uncomfortable. I couldn’t stand to watch him suffer, and I knew there had to be a better way to help him heal. So, I decided to give it a shot and make him a soft healing cone with some leftover fabric. After I traded his plastic cone for my fabric e-cone, his behavior changed immediately!!!

When I saw how much happier and more comfortable he was, I was overjoyed. That’s when the idea for Million Dogs was born. I realized that there were so many pets like mine, whose quality of life declined when they had to wear a plastic cone. I wanted to help their owners find a solution.

In 2016, I started selling Million Dogs products on the side. But last year, I finally quit my job to make Million Dogs products full time. Now, I can dedicate more time to my business—which is great, because I often make custom cones for those pets with unusual proportions. They deserve to be comfortable, too!

Helping pets get through the healing process comfortably makes me so happy.

I’ve found my purpose in life, and I hope I’m someday able to help millions of dogs and cats.
