Kate from Moderncat tipped me off to Free Stitch, a Japanese company designing and making beautiful clothing, collars, leashes and other accessories for dogs. From what I understand, they are a group of graphic designers who wanted their pets to look as beautiful as they were on the inside, so they started making clothes. What really seals the deal for me, though, is the product photography.
Call me a dork and call it a fanny pack, but I like the idea of this dog walking belt created by Cesar Millan and DOOG. This product is great for long hikes or short walks when you’re out of pocket space. The custom belt includes special holders for your keys, iPod and even a tennis ball, plus it comes equipped with doggie waste bags and antibacterial hand wipes. Fanny pack or not, this is smart. Buy it on Cesar’s site.
Hey! An entire year has passed… how did that happen? Since this is the first full year of Dog Milk, let’s take a look back at the best posts of 2011 — from dog house planters to our exclusive interview with the world’s cutest dog.
Modern Shed Meets Modern Dog House
David van Alphen’s modern shed sprouted a mini-me: a modern dog house for his modern pooch.
From the Bauhaus to the Beamer, I’m a huge fan of German design. The folks over at German company Cloud7 have put their collective finger on what so many designers from their country have espoused: the importance of eye-catching, clean, functional design. Cloud7′s line of doggie wares (featuring bowls, beds, toys, and pillows) is the newest entry on my list of Favorite German Things (right up there with their chocolate cake).
We rounded up 10 super-stylish gifts for your hip hound this holiday season. Read it over on TheFW.
The USA-made RuffBowl takes a product you always seem to need when on the go with your pup and one that you probably already have and combines them into one very handy idea. A convenient travel bowl for water or food that conveniently clips onto most large retractable leashes, RuffBowl is a must-have for long walkers.
Nothing gets me excited like clean, functional design in bright colors… except maybe travel, adventure, and the lure of the open road. And dog stuff, of course. These candy-colored travel bowls from Dogit made of durable, flexible, lightweight silicone? Practically a dream come true.
