An animal can be your best friend. This is sometimes said about dogs in relation to man. It never hurts to buy something special for your favorite pet and designer dog collars are just that. A designer dog collar is a dog collar which is made usually by hand by one individual. The collar may have a signature of the designer’s skill or style. This is one of the best ways to have your animal stand out in a crowd of their own kind. It is your favorite animal more than likely, so why not dress him up some. People walk around every day with what they call their ‘bling’ so why can’t your dog also have their own bling?
One of the amazing things about designer dog collars is you can have them custom made. A designer can take your information and for a premium fee craft a collar that is unique and special, all its own. Imagine a dog collar which separates your dog from all others. These designer collars are also well priced. They are most affordable starting anywhere from eighteen dollars and going as high as just under one hundred dollars. These designer collars can be made in themes, colors and just about anything which can suit you and your dog’s fancy.
Sometimes people enter their animal into dog show competition against other animals. These shows are all based on breed, looks and pedigree. Sometimes a nice flashy collar can make all the difference between two of the same animals. A designer dog collar is the gift to man’s best friend which will always keep giving back. You can have your name and address placed on the collar as well if the animal has a habit of getting loose and running away. Every year almost one thousand dogs go missing because of lack of collars to show their home and address. With a designer collar you not only have the information listed but also an individual statement which can be used to identify your dog in the future.
Our pets do so much for us that we cannot afford to not give them something as fantastic as a designer dog collar. Designer dog collars are just a perfect way of saying you love your dog, so why not take a look at what some designers have to offer in this new and exciting line of doggy fashion.

Cool Dog Clothes for Boys

by Admin on March 9, 2013

What young male does not like to appear handsome? What older male does not like to look young, virile and dashing? Humans and dogs alike want to be the best dressed on the block, or in the park. Finding cool dog clothes for boy dogs is not difficult; you need not even look far and wide. You can assure your boy dog is fit for an afternoon in the park or an evening on the town.
Whatever your dog’s life style or hobbies there are clothes to show he is fashion trendy. We have all seen dogs riding with their owner on the back of the motorcycle. The owner is wearing his leather gear; there is no reason the companion cannot ride in style also. Nothing will say biker dog faster than a biker jacket with heavy duty nail heads, and an embroidered eagle patch. On the other hand, the professional dog may prefer to wear a cotton shirt or Dublin Knit sweater. No one would ever doubt the importance of a pooch when they dress to impress.
The possibilities are endless; finding cool dog clothes for boy dogs is simple once you know what the attire is for the function at hand. Are you going to the game? Maybe an NCAA jersey of your favorite collegiate school is just what the veterinarian ordered. If your canine is a professional athlete, he may prefer an NFL tee shirt instead, you only need to determine which his favorite team is. These t-shirts are available in sizes to fit your defensive lineman bulldog, or your halfback terrier.
Getting married? Who is better suited to be the best man or ring bearer, your two-legged best friend, or four-legged companion? The correct answer is whichever you prefer. Do not be afraid to select the four-legged best friend just because you cannot find formal attire which is wedding suitable. The discriminating shopper can find a formal t-shirt for the ring bearer, with a ribbon on the back to secure the rings. Perhaps a tuxedo scarf set is just the perfect finishing touch for when the two of you say I do to Mr. or Mrs. Right.
Whatever the occasion, you will have no trouble finding cool dog clothes for your boy dog. A dog day on the water should never include a dog without sailing attire. Whether it be polo shirts or nautical wear, suitable preppy watercraft clothing is available.
Do not leave your friend at home because they have nothing to wear. Shop til you drop and have your four-legged companion be dressed as well as you, no matter what the occasion.

Classy Travel Accessories for Dogs

by Admin on February 24, 2013

It is not a secret all dogs love “to go”. It is one of the first phrases they learn, and do they ever learn it well. Nothing makes the average dog happier than riding in the car with his/her human companions. Dogs dislike being left at home. They are more than glad to show you how unhappy by getting into trash receptacles, tearing up pillows, and pulling dirty clothes into the living room during your absence. The best way to avoid these little temper tantrums is to take your best friend with. There are a many options of travel accessories for dogs available.
You would not dare take a child or grandchild for a car ride without placing them in a size appropriate car seat or booster. Why is your four legged child any different? For the safety of the pampered pooch, and other occupants, a car seat is essential. Car seats or booster seats are available in a multitude of styles, sizes, and adaptability. For example, if your buddy likes to ride in the front seat next to you, but the console is in the way; consider purchasing a console pet seat. Granted, this is only for the very small breeds or puppy, but it will keep your nervous Nellie close by to reduce anxiety. These car seats are so cozy due to the lamb’s wool interior and quilted exterior you will want to sit there yourself.
When you get to your destination, no four-legged friend wants to stay in the car while you play outside the car. You and your pet will want to stay together to see the sights, and shop the stores. There are many options of pet carriers and strollers available on the market. Depending upon the size of the dog, and your physical capacities, you may want a purse style dog carrier, or possibly a pet stroller. If your outing includes some time at the home of another, or at an outside venue, it may be wise to bring along a hiding or napping place. Options are endless, maybe a pup tent is just right to keep your dog in view yet secure in an enclosed container.
Persnickety pet owners will also want to include in their pet travel bag, a portable food and water bowl, some toys, and a favorite blanket or pillow to sooth the excited pooch’s nerves. Consider packing the doggie travel bag, like you would a baby’s diaper bag. Never forget a disposable waste bag to pick up after you have visited the nearby fire hydrant.
The options are endless. Your pet should never have to do without the comforts of home when on the go with their human buddies. Styles are extensive, you will have no trouble finding just the right travel accessories for dogs to suit your life style and the life style of your four legged companion.

Heading out the Door

by Admin on January 14, 2013

pink blossom straw tote

It’s so much fun for you and your pup to accompany you on outings! My Chihuahua just loves to head out anywhere! She gets all excited and runs around when she sees her carrier coming out of the closet and ready for use. Reecie prefers a carrier that allows her head out so she can be well attuned to what is happening. Actually, if I put her in a closed carrier, she usually manages to find a way out! Before I know it, I see her little head working itself out of a tiny opening and struggling to get out in the real world! So, I have decided to use an open carrier, which has a leash to keep her securely tucked inside.   The Pink Blossom Straw tote is a favorite of ours!  It is from A Pet’s World and is cute, comfortable and easy to carry!  http://www.upscalepup.com/product.php?productid=17575&cat=0&page=1   When pups are taken out to the public from the time they are young, they are generally very well adjusted friendly pets. I realize this is not always the case, but it’s usually beneficial to start young! So, enjoy those days out. And remember, during the cold months, add a sweater on the pooch so she won’t end up shivering! Happy adventures!

Step ‘N Go! Harness is Really That Easy!

by Admin on January 3, 2013

My 3.8 pound Yorkie really “rules the roost”, and that includes walking on a leash. She is, well, horrible at it. I have been a bit afraid to push the issue, realizing that a Yorkie’s throat area is quite sensitive and can be hurt with much pressure.
I liked the Step ‘N Go Harness when I added it to my boutique in the fall and decided to give it a try. It is really as easy as it sounds. You simply “step” your pup in and “go” for your walk. I loved it, Scarlet loved it and we had the most successful walk! Scarlet was secure in the harness, yet there is no pressure on the throat area. The harness/leash comes in darling colors; pink, black and brown/gold. It is adorned with a silver rhinestone paw print. Really cute. Really easy. And really works!
With summer coming, I encourage you to give it a try.
Happy walking!

Cute Jewelry for Dogs

by Admin on July 6, 2012

Jewelry such as shiny colorful charms that can be added to your devoted pets collar are currently all the rage in pet fashion. Who would want to be caught out on the town with their little lady or tramp if she or he was not done up with today’s top designer wears?

There is now hot demand for jewelry meant to adorn your pet pooch. Some choose to have their little fur angel wear special designer rhinestone collars, others have little charms where the tags are hooked on the collar. But it does not stop there, some people even buy fur protective neck-ware and bracelets/anklets for their doggies. There are even some designers that specially create fashion earrings safe for a dog’s ears. How about a couple rings to go around your loving fur babies toes?

These items are typically not meant for daily wear but for nice dress up occasions you have with your furry pets. Maybe you are going to an up-scale party, a dog birthday party, or possibly going to a dog event, like a local dog show looking for little champions. These are the occasions that are perfect for dressing your dog with either an entire outfit completely accessorized with its new jewelry made especially for dogs.

The jewelry is a lot like the jewelry we buy ourselves as humans, it can come in gold, silver or other precious metals or it can also be beaded with fake or even real stones. For bracelets and anklets it is highly recommended to use an elastic type string so it can fit against your dog’s fur and will not easily fall off.

It is also recommended to never fit your pooch with earrings on your own, please take to your local dog groomer that is licensed or your pet’s veterinarian. However it is perfectly safe to put earring in your dog’s ears. Earrings, necklaces, charms and rings can all be bought in sets or sold separately. The different types of charms are typically pet friendly in style like a dog bone, a likeness of its breed, maybe for a sense of fun, even a shape of the dogs arch nemesis, the cat!

Jewelry for dogs can be such a fun thing to do for your animal. The pet loving community loves to oh and ah over each other’s different styles and tastes. Make your pet feel its ultimate beauty by adorning him or her with jewelry for dogs.

Why Should I Choose Organic Dog Toys?

by Admin on July 2, 2012

There are many reasons why a consumer may choose to purchase an organic alternative, but one of the most common reasons for choosing organic is the safety and durability that comes with knowing you are buying the best possible quality. Once just reserved for foods and some clothing, the term ‘organic’ is now faithfully applied to almost any line of produce and merchandise available in the western world.

Pet owners in America could be called the most enthusiastic pet owners in the world, so it is doubly unsurprising that organic dog toys would be such a large and successful limb of the dog toy and care industry. One advantage of organically produced dog toys is the safety – you know that the fabrics and materials were sourced naturally and constructed with a great deal of human involvement. Unlike factory-produced toys that are made with plastics that could be hazardous to your dog if they were to swallow it.

Another clear advantage of organic dog toys is their durability, unlike a product that has been mass- manufactured to make as many as cheaply as possible, organic alternatives are lovingly put together using durable and familiar materials such as rope that will not only extend your dog’s enjoyment, but also your peace of mind.

Dog care products are a multi-billion dollar business and any industry that has that much money flowing through it will inevitably confront the consumer with certain ethical concerns. Where was this made? How was this made? Is it contributing to my carbon foot print? With this in mind, any thoughtful consumer would take peace of mind in contributing to a more sustainable pattern of purchasing for their pet, even if the cost is somewhat elevates. The industry is aware of this and is happy to provide customers with ethical alternatives while boosting profits; it’s a win-win scenario for business, consumer and your furry friend.

One thing is clear: organic dog toys are not only a sound ethical decision for you, but they are also a smart financial one. The durability alone means these toys will outlast the average dollar-store dog toy and save you money, while also giving your little friend something to really chew on. In recent years, the price of organic alternatives (especially in the larger industries, such as pet care) have plummeted to meet a growing demand, so these toys are now an option for even those on a tight budget.
