Water Dog's Story
Water Dog was created by Stacie and Josh Richline. Having lived in several areas of the U.S. and abroad, they found Corpus Christi to be an ideal place to live and enjoy the outdoors and the water. This coastal city provides a year-round outdoor environment where the warm sunshine and abundant waters are the perfect place to stay active and enjoy nature. Stacie and Josh wanted to offer this to visitors and the community of Corpus Christi, Texas.
Stacie is a school teacher, most recently teaching at Flour Bluff ISD. She has lived and taught all over the world including; Key West, Japan and Abu Dhabi. For her, staying active is an important part of life and its much more enjoyable outdoors. Stacie started competitive running at a young age and earned a scholarship to run Cross-Country and Track at Penn State University. She coached at Key West High School and later became a fitness and yoga instructor, teaching all over and locally at Gold's Gym, Corpus Christi Athletic Club, Bayside Pilates and The Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi.
Josh has lived in Corpus Christi for most of his adult life. Seventeen years ago he started a successful IT business in the city: Richline Technical Services. Josh is a long time, active sailor. He has crewed on racing sailboats on the East, West and Gulf Coasts of the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean. He is an active member of the Corpus Christi Yacht Club. Josh also has extensive knowledge of boats and water safety as well as knowledge about the local waters, wind and weather conditons in the Corpus Christi Marina and Bay Area.
Their love for dogs, especially their Sheltie, inspired the name "WATER DOG".
