BarkBox is a paid subscription service that delivers a box of modern dog goodies (toys, treats, leashes, etc.) to your door every month based on your dog’s size, age, and breed. Which, for a
hermit online shopper like me, is pretty much the bees knees. Bonus? 10% of all proceeds go to local rescue groups and shelters!

Upcycling – I hate the word but love the concept. I’m always concerned with how much trash and waste I produce, so I get excited when things are recycled and reused rather than whisked off to landfills. Eco-friendly company Better Buddies (co-created by General Hospital star Julie Marie Berman) recycles old yoga mats and turns them into placemats for dogs and cats. The mats undergo a rigorous sanitation process (and if you’ve ever done a hot yoga class, you know that’s important) and cut into colorful dishwasher-safe and non-skid food mats. To that awesome idea, I say: Namaste. (Better Buddies also donates 10% of profits to the Best Friends Society’s Guardian Angel program, so they’re doing good two times over!)
The following post is brought to you by Hugs Pet Products. We?re very paw-ticular about our partners and only feature those we think are top dog.
I love the story behind Hugs Pet Products‘ name: owners Katie and Chad Brewer wanted to celebrate the boundless love and lifetime of excited greetings (and puppy hugs) they received from their pets by giving back in the form of innovative pet products. Katie and Chad believe that “at the heart of every hug is love,” which is how they approach the design and manufacturing of their modern pet gear!
Their passion for pets shows in their original product designs (which they also manufacture and distribute). I mean, hello, how awesome is that apple-shaped, tooth-scrubbing chew toy? To show just how much they love all furry companions, they’re offering your pooch 25% off everything in their shop now through September 10th. Simply enter the discount code HUGS25 at checkout.
We couldn’t resist rounding up a few of our favorite Hugs products, of course! 1: Potty Paws 2: Chew Core 3: Hydro Bone 4: Tee Bone 5: Better Tether 6: Silicone Dog Treat Pan 7: Gel Pet Mat
I’ve been following Inubar, a discounted designer shopping site for dogs, since it was in beta and I’m excited to let you know that it’s open for business! Inubar sets itself apart from other flash sale sites (I know, I know — they are everywhere) through its expertly curated selections. They’ve partnered with some of the best modern dog designers and brands out there, you guys. It’s stuff you’d actually want!
Waggo is a modern dog accessories brand founded in 2011 by Brooklyn-based designer Regine Raab. Her background in fashion is apparent throughout, with bold colors and modern patterns found on everything from beds to leashes to food mats! I am absolutely in love with the “Spotty Dotty” pattern, which is available on a variety of different bed styles as well as ceramic bowls.

Boston Terriers and Doxies and coffee?? Sounds like a winning combo to me! The sibling tag team behind San Fernando-based stationery company Rock Scissor Paper, Heidi and Susie Bauer, have an entire collection of adorable mugs to suit any dog (or design) lover. I’m also digging their brand new collection of stainless steel water bottles, too!
