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.
A while back I fell in love with The Urban Animal Scientist’s line of incredibly stylish silk dog collars. Recently, founder Antonio F. Lewis has blown me away again with his latest collection of beautifully designed dog shampoos and conditioners from The Wash collection, and these modern and elegant home candles from The Loft collection. Both items are definitely display-worthy and perfect for keeping your pet-friendly home from smelling like, well, dog.
I love how stylish eco-friendly products have become over the past few years. It certainly makes it easier to go green everyday! On this very happy Earth Day, I wanted to share some of my favorite eco-friendly products around. Every single one of these, including this very cool Go Green Earth Hoodie, will have you and your dog looking great while feeling good about the tiny carbon paw-prints you’re leaving behind.
Bags On Board is probably one of the best known brands for promoting responsible pet ownership through the creation of stylish sanitation bags and dispensers. But did you know that you don’t have to settle for a plain design anymore? That’s right — Bags on Board now has a line of designer dispensers that also includes a design-and-print option!
A few weeks back I was blown away by Isaac Mizrahi’s New York Fashion Week show. Yes, his designs were incredibly lovely, but what really caught my eye were the glamorous poodles that proudly walked the runway along side Mizrahi’s models. Wanting to know more about this spectacular show, I was thrilled when the talented groomers, responsible for styling these catwalk dogs, agreed to answer some of my questions. With their creative approach to styling and show-stopping expertise, The Salty Paw in New York City is certainly not your average grooming spa.
Dreamfarm, the Australian innovator of quirky design products like Tapi the tapwater fountain, has done it again.
SkinnySkinny eco-friendly bath and body company owner Clara Williams found that her Shepherd-Collie mix, Haley, was having some skin issues. Therefore, she created a new product, the Organic Fetching Dog Shampoo Bar specifically for dogs with skin allergies and sensitivities. With natural ingredients such as rosemary, citronella, and ylang ylang, it cleanses while soothing.
