Babies and Beasts is a Canadian company that makes practical and stylish clothing for your modern babies and beasts. Think of it as a cool one-stop shop for your four and two-legged loved ones.

iDog Japan is a company that was initially focused on making human sports clothing but switched to dog clothes when the pet industry began to explode.

They have a commitment to making quality garments that are as “kawaii” (“cute” in Japanese) as possible. I’d say they’ve succeeded!
