The Modern Paws is proud to carry Pet House Candles in Tampa, Florida. Robert and David have been friends and pet lovers since middle school. After high school, they went in some different directions. Robert ended up working for champagne, luggage and high-end goods king Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton while David became a pet store owner. Robert moved to Asheville, North Carolina while David stayed close to the beach (and his family) in South Florida.
