Hello! My name is Jeannine Johnstone, I am the owner of That Dog Studio, based in North Vancouver, BC. “That Dog” is my girl Charlie, who is a rescued street dog from Taiwan.
I am a self-taught artist and have run That Dog Studio since 2017. I picked up paracord weaving in 2020, while looking for something to keep me busy during the covid-19 quarantine and was immediately intrigued by its applications for pet accessories. In addition, I loved the inclusive and community minded nature of the paracord community.
When I’m not running That Dog Studio, I work full time in habitat restoration, and spend my free time exploring in nature with Charlie and my family.
I recognize that I am an uninvited guest, living and working on the unceded land of the Coast Salish people.
