“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. Alas, Petswag was born!

Cursed with near-perfect vision, I’ve always wanted to wear glasses because, come on, they’re awesome. Contact lenses, though? No, thank you. The idea of purposefully sticking something into my eye wigs me so far out I’m in another time zone. But, you brave souls who do wear contacts, check this out: It’s a little doggie lens case. Five bucks at Kikkerland. Totally worth poking yourself in the eye for.
LoveThyBeast is a brand new pet accessories company based in Brooklyn whose modern products are blowing my mind. From beds to totes to travel bowls (to this awesome pyramid house - OMG), their collection is absolutely stunning, not to mention built on the principles of sustainability: all of their materials are locally milled, sourced from craftsmen and textile mills within 200 miles of their office. I LOVE that.
My dogs love boarding, and — let’s be frank — sometimes I don’t mind a little vacation from them. If you’re traveling with dogs, however, it can sometimes be hard to find accommodations that welcome two- and four-leggers alike. Enter DogWonderful. This easily-navigable travel resource site quickly points you toward dog-friendly accommodations in your destination, complete with detailed information on each hotel’s pet policy — and you can book your room straight from the site. There’s also flight and rental car resources as well as features on dog-friendly destinations. DogWonderful provides so much information, the only question that remains is whether your dogs will welcome you on their vacation.
