Alite Designs is a new San Francisco-based design company. Their goal is to create products that help people get outside and have fun, especially with their dogs. They want to help take the hassle out of walking your dog, so you can just grab your leash and go have fun with your pooch. Plus, they love design and want to step up the design aesthetic for dog products and move beyond traditional fire hydrant and bone decorations. Amen!
Lately, I’ve really been into braided and knotted collars and leashes. I don’t know what it is, but they sure look nice. I love these Sailor’s Knot leads from Mascot. How cute are the matching collars with the bone buckle?
I have to admit, I have not invested in any tracking devices for my dog. I do have those $8 collar tags on each dog with their name a phone number in case of emergency. However, I’ve often wondered if I should make the extra investment in a special ID tag.
blanketID is a special 15mm x 25mm tag that is individual to your pet. You purchase a tag, then go on to the blanketID website to add details and photos of your pets under your unique blanketID tag number. It’s waterproof, scratch-proof, and lightweight fitting right on your dog’s collar like a name tag. Plus, the designs sure beat those ugly metal tags from the machines.
If your pet gets lost, simply report your pet missing and blanketID.com automatically sends a broadcast email to local SPCA, animal hospitals, shelters, other local blanketID members. Everyone will be able to access a full description and photos of your pet. If you find a pet with a blanketID tag you can log on and enter its blanketID tag number to find its owner.
Have you ever considered a pet ID service such as this or do you use the standard tags you get from the “big box” pet store?
…I will lick you.
HA! Cracked me up. Available at BowWowzerZ’s Etsy shop.
I love this new collar from The Mod Dog, aptly named “Twitter”. It comes in three colorways: blue/green, lime/turquoise, or orange/fuchsia. It has a heavy nylon webbed backing and a plastic buckle. It also comes with a D-ring for tags and you can choose other options like a metal buckle collar or a matching leash (at an extra charge). Sizes are medium to extra large.
I don’t know if I’ve yet professed my love for the fabric known as Neoprene, but let me just tell you that it rocks. This Neoprene Leash Pouch from Wagwear is fantastic — you can attach it to your leash and it can carry spare doggie bags, your cell phone, keys (I really need one for my keys), and a few treats. The nickel grommet dispenses baggies on a roll. The come in two sizes: large and small as well as four colors: blue, orange, brown, and black.
