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.

The 1 Year Anniversary of our Shop Fire...


As of yesterday, December 17th 2017, it's been one full year since our old shop caught fire

In some ways it feels as if it was just yesterday, and in other ways it feels as if it happened forever ago.


Come to think of it - it must feel like forever ago because so much has happened since then...


In early January the first walls of our new shop went up. By June 1st we were ready to move in! Fast forward to today, we've been in our new shop for almost 7 months! 


With more than 2x the amount of space as our old shop, we've really had space to grow...


Our first floor is completely open with new long tables we can arrange however we need. Our stock levels of materials, bisqueware, and glazeware have never been so high!



New shelving holds all of the molds we saved from the fire. In the upper left corner you can see our old Wet Dog Tile sign that was taken from the old shop before it was torn down.


The second floor contains a pottery room, artist room, shipping and receiving, a second kiln room, an office space, and the glazing room you see above. 


The 3rd floor is mostly storage space along with a break room and a bathroom. The mural in the photo above is in the 3rd story bathroom - it contains new pieces that we'll be putting up on the website next month! Pieces such as otters, jellyfish, seahorses, and much more.

 Not only do we have a new shop and new pieces to unveil, but we've hired some new, friendly faces! The Wet Dog team keeps growing!

We can't give enough thanks to everyone who has helped us get where we are today. Those who helped build the shop, our wonderful customers, and all of our supporters - thank you. This wouldn't be possible without any of you! 2017 has been one crazy year but we are forever grateful. ♥

Winter Is Coming!

With the first day of Winter sneaking up, we wanted to take a minute to share some of our past murals and borders that use pieces from the Lake Dog and Pond Dog Collections!

While the Ocean Dog Collection is by far our best-selling, we always love creating murals using pieces from the other two collections, such as Moose, Bear, Leaves, and so much more!

This mural below is one we're working on right now. It's currently in the dry-lay stage about to be glued and shipped!
This is our "In The Meadow" mural from the Lake Dog Collection. It features various leaves and a 7" Moose in the center.
Below are a few of our favorite murals to date using pieces from the Lake Dog and Pond Dog Collections. These murals would be great for a lodge, log cabin, farm house, or any space that needs a rustic and natural feel to it!




Feel free to check out the Lake Dog Collection and the Pond Dog Collection on our website!

A Sneak Peek at New Pieces!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Today is a special day, not only because it's Halloween, but because we can share some new pieces with you!

These pieces have been works in progress for a long time now. In the winter of 2016 we were almost ready to roll these pieces out but when our shop burned down we put them aside to focus on more important things. We've been slowly putting time into them over the course of this year and are finally able to say we'll be selling these pieces in January 2018!

Here are a few photos of some of the upcoming pieces!

Tropical fish, new jellyfish, seahorses, and more

The Angel Fish!

Another one of the new tropical fish!

These pieces are just a few of the new ones we'll be selling in 2018 - we have quite a few more to show! Keep checking back as we'll show more soon!

Happy Halloween!

Projects for This Week!


Hey, everyone! 

We wanted to show some of the projects we're working on this week!

This mural is almost complete! This is a custom mural based on our "In The Moonlight" mural from our Pond Dog Collection. Slate still has to be cut to fit the upper portion.

This is a custom border using our 3" Extra Small Starfish, Rounds (from the Wet Dog Mosaics page), Rubble Pebbles, and Shale Skipping Stones, both from our Wet Dog Textures page. We're hoping to get an installation photo of this one because it is pretty unique!
Another shot of the custom border from above!

This is a Starfish border in the Tidal colorway, part of our Ocean Dog Collection. This border is an item available for "quick ship", meaning we can send these out in 3-5 days instead of the regular 2-3 week lead time.

Feel free to follow us on Instagram as we share photos like these fairly often! Visit https://www.instagram.com/wetdogtileco/ or add us by searching our username @wetdogtileco

We hope everyone has a great day!

New Installation Photos Pt. 2!


Hey, everyone!

Last week we posted a blog post about our new installation photos - if you haven't seen them yet then head over to wetdogtile.com and check them out for yourself!

In last week's blog post we went behind the scenes of one of the new installation photos. The blog post was very popular so we decided we'd do a similar post this week!

This close up is of a new kitchen backsplash mural we recently did! It features pieces from the Ocean Dog Collection, such as our 12" lobster, 6" mermaid, turtles, starfish, shells, and more! It also features a few fish from the Lake Dog Collection!


Below is the concept drawing our artists created for this mural...


Between concept and creation there may be some changes along the way. You may see "gravel green" textures called out in the concept drawing that didn't end up in the final piece, though the finished backsplash still looks very similar to the concept drawing, don't you think?

The backsplash from a different view!
