About Us

Have you been digging around for beautiful, unique, and practical products for you and your dog and keep coming up empty-handed? 

We get it. When we started looking for a new collar and leash for our dog June, we quickly realized this wasn’t going to be a walk in the park. After some pretty major Internet surfing and more than one headache later, we finally discovered some brands we loved. There needed to be an easier way for aesthetically minded pet owners to shop – so we set out to create it with Hunter & June. 

Your dog is unique – and so are you. 

Hunter & June was born from this core idea – that you and your dog deserve something that is as different as you are. That when you’re walking down the street, going to the dog park together, or just snuggled up at home, you both can wear and use products that are an extension of your own style. Practical can be pretty, useful can have a great aesthetic. And not everything has to be neon or covered in bones, thank you very much!

We’re here to make tails wag and pup parents smile.

Our goal is to make shopping for your pet enjoyable, easy, and effortless. Our highly curated selection is handpicked based on uniqueness, design, quality, and practicality.

Meet the Founders

Well hi there and hello! We’re Kalina and Pete Stormer, and we’re the people behind the scenes of H&J. We’re married and live in Nashville, TN with our daughter Willa and furchild June (so basically, Pete is constantly overrun by the ladies of the Stormer household). We started Hunter & June when we were pregnant – because WHY NOT pack all the major life changes into one year?? We launched our business online back in September of 2017 with this little site you’re on now, and in July 2018 we opened our first brick and mortar (we still have to pinch ourselves that we get to hang out with dogs and cool people all day). 

Behind the Name

Hunter was Pete's family pet that he picked out himself - a lovable and, come to find out, not quite purebred golden retriever. One of our favorite things about Hunter was watching him join in on a secret handshake between Pete and his father by barking and jumping enthusiastically between them.
June is our dog that we own together now. She's a sweet and timid pug mix rescue with a big underbite and even bigger heart. She changed our lives the second we looked into her big pug eyes at the shelter. It's been so inspiring to watch her slowly overcome her fears and see her HUGE personality come to life.
Both of these pets have left their pawprints on our hearts, and we celebrate them by naming our shop after two of our best friends.
Hunter & June - a nod to the past and the present, the purebred and the rescue, to all the animals that deserve the very best for being part of our lives.
