Mat Coulton, B.Comm – Dog Lover and WileyPup Owner
Mat was born and raised in Sydney, Australia and has grown up with dogs his whole life. In late 2015 he rescued a shelter dog called Daze as a 20 week old Kelpie x Cattle Dog pup from rural New South Wales.
Daze had a tough early life. His fear towards humans and certain breeds of dogs was only matched by his love for those that took the time to understand him. Helping Daze grow was a life changing experience for Mat. Daze became the inspiration behind Wiley Pup.
Mat wanted to combine his business education and entrepreneurial experience with his love for dogs. He decided to build a website that would share expert training tips, the latest information on pet nutrition, and honest reviews of the best pet products to help other dog lovers do the best for their pets. Wiley Pup was born!
Mat received his Bachelor of Commerce Degree from Macquarie University in 2012, he also holds a Diploma in Human Resource Management from Northern Beaches College.
