Just because your pup has four paws (presumably) and no opposable thumbs doesn’t mean he or she can’t rock the world of handmade. Ditch the blah world of cookie cutter pet accessories and embrace the awesomeness of individuality. After all-it’s not really fair to hog all the gloriousness of handmade just for yourself.
Totally Green Collar and Leash Set for Large Dogs by juliacuster. $35. Recognize that handsome dog rocking that totally amazing collar? That’s because he’s Kate’s pup (who you were introduced to on Tuesday) and because he is the most stylish pup in the neighborhood now that he has his Totally Green collar and leash set from the wonderful Julia Custer. Take it from McCoy, this collar and leash set are by far the coolest you’ll ever find-made of breathable and lightweight hemp webbing and gorgeous vintage feed bags, they’re crazy strong as well as earth friendly and stylish, which means it’s a winning combination for both Kate and McCoy (and for you and your buddy, too).
Riley Pet ID Tag in Mixed Metal by theCopperPoppy. $15. Part of being a responsible pet owner is, of course, making sure that your dog is easily identifiable. Lucky for us, theCopperPoppy makes it easy (and affordable) to do it with style. McCoy is also a proud owner of one of these custom tag sets (you can see it in his pic up there) and we can tell you-they’re even more gorgeous in person. The aluminum and bronze discs are worn to perfection, completely one of a kind, and way cooler than those run of the mill tags you get at the pet stores. After all, if your dog is going to wear something every day, shouldn’t it look cool? (The answer is yes.)
Bacon Bones-Real Applewood Smoked Bacon Dog Treats by PosBagOfBonesBakery. $5.75 for approximately 25. I’m not saying I’d eat dog treats, but I am saying that these kind of make me hungry (and it’s not even lunch time). These all natural treats are baked fresh with thick cut applewood bacon and organic pork stock, and while your pup is enjoying them you can enjoy the fact that 50% of the profit of these treats are donated to the ASPCA in memory of the beloved pup Po. Good for your pup, good for you.
Retro Inspired Dog Treats Jar by twofarmchicks. $12. Before your four legged friend wolfs down all those treats from Po’s, store some in this totally awesome treat jar from twofarmchicks. With an adorable design and customizable carving (Want to put pup’s name on the opposite side? These chicks can do it!) this jar can be displayed proudly…and well within reach for for those frequent snacks.
Moose Recycled Skate Pet Feeder by SkateDog Studios. $100. If your dogs are anything like ours, let’s just say dinner time…not exactly the most appetizing time of the day. But with a recycled skateboard feeding station, you won’t have to shove those unsightly bowls out of the way when company comes any more. Instead, you can proudly show off this kickass and one of a kind feeder and bask in the complements and adoration. Oh, and no doubt your dog will enjoy it too.
Bow Wow Beds XL Dog Bed Cover by BowWowBeds. $43. Don’t let the fact that these dog bed covers were featured on HGTV impress you* (*this should totally impress you), let the fact that these beds are made of super sturdy duck canvas, customizable with plenty of awesome choices of fonts and colors, and are flat out sweet looking impress you. Your dog needs a comfy, stylin’ bed to rest on after a long day’s work of protecting you, playing with you, and trying to prove to you that you’re the best human on the face of the planet, and this? We’d say that this is the perfect bed for that.
