Unleashed is a small, privately & locally owned and operated company striving to provide “the best a dog & cat can get,” at reasonable prices! We really want every dog & cat to be as happy and healthy as ours.
The owners of Unleashed, whom you can read more about on our website (www.unleashedmutt.com), grew up mostly in Raleigh, NC, with a few years in Wilmington, NC, and are happy to serve Raleigh, Cary, and Wilmington and contribute to these communities as much as possible.
Unleashed began February 24, 2007 at the NC State Fairgrounds Marketplace, with one table, one display stand, and a garden umbrella. We quickly expanded our little “shop” and later added our online store. In October 2007, we were invited to the NC State Fair, and business kept growing.
Kaylee Schatz-Berg spent most of her early childhood immersed in the outdoor abundance of the Paradise Coast in Naples, Florida. From relatively modest beginnings, Naples’ beauty offered Kaylee the perfect backdrop to motivate hard work, perseverance and an appreciation for sunny skies, salty air nature’s endless beauty.
At the age of seven, it was clear Kaylee’s surroundings began manifesting daily inspiration. In creatively accessorizing her otherwise basic wardrobe ensembles, Kaylee became determined to push the limits. Attending a school that required daily uniforms often limited her ability to express herself. Nevertheless, Kaylee found a way to defy the status quo by decorating her saddle shoes with markers and colorful tape, rolling her skirts to shorter lengths, tie-dying her socks and accessorizing her basic white shirts and backpacks with colorful patches, coastal tokens and fabric swatches. Perhaps this initiated her lifelong love for art and obsession with individual expression.
After college, Kaylee pursued a decade long career in marketing, real estate and interior design in both the Washington, DC and Raleigh, North Carolina suburbs. While surrounding herself with beautiful design, eclectic people and dynamic visual stimulation, Kaylee believed she was destined for something more encompassing of her passions. She wanted to find an even larger platform to share her love of design, travel, and fashion. And in keeping with that goal, Asher Marie was born!

Or, if we don’t have it, bring it to us and we will add a name, monogram, or logo. We have worked with swim teams and various local businesses providing them with shirts and hats that set them apart from all the rest.
