iDog Japan is a company that was initially focused on making human sports clothing but switched to dog clothes when the pet industry began to explode. Located in the former garment district of Western Toyama, Japan, the company was able to sustain its business as a dog clothing manufacturer, and now, retailer. They have a commitment to making quality garments that are as “kawaii” (“cute” in Japanese) as possible. I’d say they’ve succeeded!

Way back when the internet was a little baby, when we were all still pretty amazed by email and busy making web sites like this, a little company called Pets.com was born that had ridiculously cute commercials (“If you leave me now…”) and insanely cheap and fast shipping guarantees that caused the company to sink so far in the red even Amazon couldn’t save it.
Now, a whole bunch of years later, a new pet shopping site, Wag.com, has popped up on the interwebs founded on Pets.com’s same model: a wide selection of must-have and most-wanted pet supplies, with free 1-2 day shipping for orders over $49.
