Hendrick Boards is a cool skateboard and apparel company based out of Orange County, CA. Unlike most SoCal skate shops, Hendrick Boards is on a serious mission to spread the word about the importance of pet adoption. They’re so serious about helping out this worthy cause, that a generous portion of all of their sales goes to local animal shelters.
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.
French design friends Claire and Arnaud began producing their origami jewelry in 2008, after a Japanese friend taught them the folding handcraft. Their clever jewelry is full of cute and well-crafted animals available in gold and silver. Naturally, I’m a huge fan of this little Origami Dog Necklace. I’m dying to give him a home around my neck.
Moleskine’s newest additions to their collection of timeless notebooks are dedicated to the passions of our lives. Of course, this includes our pets! The Moleskine Passions Dog Journal contains 240 pages split into 10 tabbed sections to record and recall useful and fun information about your dog. The first 5 sections are pre-themed as Getting Ready, Personality, Dog Log, Traveling and Care. The remaining five tabs are blank for you to customize yourself, with the 200+ stickers that are included in the back of the journal. This is the perfect gift for any new dog owner!
I spend a considerable amount of time at my desk, so I’m always on the search for cool desktop accessories to add a bit of personality to my workspace. Naturally, I went nuts when I came across this USB Hubdog. Each one of this little guy’s legs is a USB port, which is perfect for those of us who never seem to have enough. I’m definitely going to give this doggy a home.
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).
