When I’m not geeking out about awesome dog stuff here or on the Dog Milk Facebook page, I’m sharing some of my favorite non-canine-themed DIY ideas and finds over on Curbly. Well, last month the theme over there was “kids and pets”, a first for Curbly, and one I obviously got SUPER CRAZY EXCITED about.
Houndworthy is a brand-spanking-new online shop for fashion-forward dogs and their people, setting itself apart from countless other dog retailers by truly believing in and treating dog ownership as a lifestyle choice. This expanded view offers a sophisticated interpretation of what a lifestyle brand can be by providing a collection of thoughts, feelings, images, and ideas that ultimately prove what all dog owners know: life with dogs is inherently rewarding.
It’s just two humans, two dogs, and two sewing machines at California-based Mattie & Margot. But this small operation is producing big-time style with their handmade collars available in over 150 colors and patterns. Yes, you read that right. ONE HUNDRED FIFTY COLORS AND PATTERNS. Sorry to shout, but that kind of selection just blows my mind!
There’s plenty more to love about Mattie & Margot, of course, and we were fortunate enough to try out a few of their collars. Read on to hear what Wrigley and Smash think, and snag a special coupon code, too!
The following post is brought to you by Petswag. We’re very paw-ticular about our partners and only feature those we think are top dog.
“Fine design for furry friends” is the tagline over at Petswag — and they mean it! Doug and Amanda Loback — Petswag’s founders, curators, and resident crazy dog people — love good design almost as much as they love their pets. When they began to furnish their first home, Doug and Amanda realized the only thing missing was good design for their three dogs, Dexter, Holder, and Lucy — and they were not alone. And so, Petswag was born!

Dog owners, you might want to sit down for this! The Smart Collar from Ridogulous Labs is not only a beautifully-designed modern collar, it’s “the smartest dog collar ever”. Like, in the history of collars. Curious what that means?
We’ve professed our love for Cloud7 in the past, and I thought it might be good to check in with what the German studio has been up to. I’m glad I did: they’ve got a whole mess o’ new beds, leashes, toys, bowls, and accessories that are just gorgeous, as well as an expanded collection of their classic travel beds. You can admire the whole line (as well as take a peek at their sweet portrait gallery) at Cloud7.
