Our Story

Hello Dog Lovers! We’re so glad you found us.

My name is Riesa Renata from Melbourne, Australia, and together with my furry sidekick – Bowie – we’re the creator of Master Bowie. I am a trained graphic artist/designer and an avid home cook who loves creating Masterchef meals for my Labrador, Bowie. I am also very passionate about dog nutrition, health and wellbeing, having completed my Raw Dog Food Nutrition Course with Dogs Naturally in April 2020.

Having Bowie has certainly opened me up to a new world – DOG WORLD!! He is the inspiration and mascot of Master Bowie. Bowie is my first pet dog. I still remember when I first met him – he’s the liveliest one out of the litter – and oh boy, how he has changed and enriched my life. As first-time parent to a pup, nothing prepares me for raising a pup. I learn as I go and as Bowie’s adjusting his new life with me, so am I. That’s how Master Bowie journey began – it’s an honest documentation, exploration and insights of living with my fur mate and baby.

Our journey is a constant learning as we explore the world through our curious minds, and Bowie never stops to amaze me. He constantly challenges and pushes me, but he also gives me unconditional love, loyalty (the food may have contributed to that!!) and passion for dog health, wellbeing and welfare.

Master Bowie’s mission is to inspire dog owners to live the best, happiest and fullest life with their dogs. Master Bowie is a hub where we’re –
