After you’ve checked out our site, we’d love for you to come by and see the daily goins’ ons at our quirky handmade tile studio in the sticks of southern New Hampshire. If goofy dogs, cool tile, and an eclectic group of former interior designers, high end tile sales consultants, and art school dropouts having fun making tile, and often times experimenting with all things awesome is your thing, then our blog will be right up your alley. Even if its not, it’s a fun way to look into the magical world of handmade tile.

Our Friends with Minor Flaws!

Hi, everyone!

Our Seconds page features a selection of pieces that didn't quite hold up to our high standards and are being offered at a discounted price! Some may be glazed in discontinued glazes, or have come out of the kiln with unexpected characteristics. Whatever the circumstances may be, these are unique and one-of-a-kind pieces that need loving homes!

Below are a select handful of pieces offered on our Seconds page!


This was a display board used in one of our showrooms. We've since updated our standard "A Walk on the Beach" design so this board is no longer accurate. With frame this measures 19.5". Wooden frame - not recommended for wet areas. Intended to be placed or hung as an art piece and not an installable mural. For more info and pricing head to our Seconds page


This set of Lily pads are glazed in Rin Tin. These were glazed for an order but didn't turn out how we had planned. For more info and pricing head to our Seconds page


This 7" Moose is glazed in Leather Leash and Bailey's Cream. There's a small imperfection in the clay for it's face. For more info and pricing head to our Seconds page


These are our 7" Large Dolphins. They're both glazed in Harry Heron. The glaze misfired and didn't turn out how we had hoped! For more info and pricing head to our Seconds page


We've also added some leftover Textures we use in our borders and murals! Take a look!


We currently have 14 sq. ft. of our Boulder Beige pebbles we're offering at a discounted rate. For more info and pricing head to our Seconds page


These are our Snowflake glass puddle textures. These are mesh-mounted and we have 26 sq. ft. available at a discounted rate! For more info and pricing head to our Seconds page


Again, our Snowflake glass puddle textures, but these are plastic-faced. We have 24 sq. ft. available at a discounted rate! For more info and pricing head to our Seconds page

Last but not least, these are our Sunshower glass puddle textures. We currently have 16 sq. ft. available at a discounted rate! For more info and pricing head to our Seconds page



Interested in seeing more? We have quite the collection of Friends with minor flaws eagerly waiting to find their forever homes. Head on over to our Seconds page to see what's available and be sure to check back because we're regularly adding new additions!

Have a great rest of your week, everyone!

Bunny, the Talking Dog | Wet Dog's Dog of the Week!



Just shy of a year old, Bunny the dog knows much more than the usual "sit" or "paw" commands. This sheepadoodle - a mix between a poodle and an Old English sheepdog - is learning how to talk, and already uses more than 40 words to let herself be heard.

Bunny's owner, Alexis Devine, is teaching Bunny to speak using alternative communication devices; tools that are usually used to help people with verbal speech deficits communicate. Bunny has learned to use a series of programmed buttons to talk with her family. Each button plays a prerecorded word or phrase once pressed, and Bunny even knows how to press multiple buttons in a row to shape her thoughts.



Since sharing Bunny's progress she's become quite the superstar, gaining over 3 million followers on TikTok, 300,000 on Instagram, being featured in People magazine, and more!

Devine has begun working with scientists and experts to start collecting and analyzing data on a larger scale, hoping to identify some patterns and to learn more about Bunny’s comprehension.

“I mean I started it for fun, but now that I’m involved with people who are scientists, that’s what’s really keeping me going,” Devine said. “I’m just sort of thoroughly enjoying the ride regardless of the destination at the moment.”


Learn more about Bunny by visiting this link to find her socials, merch, and more information!

We hope everyone has a fun and safe Holiday weekend! Enjoy!

This Week at Wet Dog Tile!


Hey, everyone!

It's been a busy week here at Wet Dog Tile Co.

We thought we'd take you behind the scenes to see a few of the projects we're working on! 


This large mural features some of our favorite Friends; our 11" Whale, our various Sea Otters, 3.5" Small Sea Turtles, and more! With this being a kitchen backsplash, we've left open spaces where the outlets will go, for both ease of installation and for a true perfect fit!


Our 11" Whale from the Ocean Dog Collection glazed in Oh' Sprinkler. Not only are these pieces made by hand but they're glazed by hand as well, meaning not only are there endless possibilities for color customization, but also each piece is completely unique!

Another mural, this one featuring our Currents from our Mosaic Textures palette. These Currents add variation to show ripples or movement in the "water" section of the mural - a detail that would be otherwise looked over if they weren't present.

Last but certainly not least, this is a small 6" border we're in the final stages with. This border features our 4" Flat Flip Flops and 5" Ray Bans - both from the Ocean Dog Collection. This is a bathroom vanity backsplash and will wrap on two walls!




We hope you enjoyed a look at our current projects! Have a great rest of your week, everyone!

Wet Dog's Dog of the Week!

Every dog on Earth is a good dog, but there really can only be one best good dog, can't there? Meet Spitfire, the best good dog in the world, athletically speaking, that is.

(Photo: Da-Rill Photography)

Spitfire, otherwise known as Spitty, is a now 7-year-old Whippet world record holder of multiple records, including a 31-foot long jump. ESPN has titled him the "Michael Jordan of dogs". If you aren't already impressed then sit back and let the video speak for itself!


This video provided by ESPN features Sydney (now 17 years old), Spitty's owner and trainer, along with Spitty and the story behind their bond and Spitfire's strange obsession with going airborne!



Perhaps the most impressive part is knowing that Spitfire, being a dog, might not even know that he's competing - he's just doing something that he loves to do.

Friends with Minor Flaws!

Hey, everybody!


As you know, we put a lot of time, effort, and love into everything we do here at Wet Dog, and while we try our best to be perfectionists, our handmade and hand-glazed pieces always have some sort of variation. Though we enjoy the idea of each piece being one of a kind, sometimes things don't turn out quite how we expect them to, but that doesn't mean that the pieces don't deserve a loving home!

That's where our Seconds page comes in. 

Our Seconds page offers a selection of pieces that didn't quite hold up to our high standards and are being offered at a discounted price. Some may be glazed in discontinued glazes, or have come out of the kiln with unexpected characteristics. Whatever the circumstances may be, these are unique and one-of-a-kind pieces that need loving homes!
