Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day takes place each year on April 22nd to raise awareness of environmental issues and remind us to take care of Mother Earth. There's a lot we can do as pet parents, to help with our furry friend's carbon paw print.

Here are a few tips from our friends from The Dogington Post to celebrate Earth Day with Your Furry Friends!
1. Cut down on waste that takes space and switch to biodegradable poop bags. The bags decompose in about the same amount of time as an apple.

2. Overpopulation, and consequently euthanization, is the #1 killer of dogs in this country. Visit your local shelter and adopt, or volunteer with a rescue group to help as many dogs in need find great forever homes.

3. Old blankets and sheets may seem like junk to you, but to the dogs at your local shelter, they are beds and comfort. Instead of trashing your old linens and towels, donate them to your local shelter.

4. Old socks with missing pairs? Make a dog toy out of it! Recycling household products and making dog toys is a great way to re-use, rather than consume. Plus, dog toys sold at pet stores can be expensive and wasteful of our planet’s resources.

5. Instead of driving to the dog park, how about rollerblading, biking or just walking instead? It’s more exercise and time for you and your dog to spend together, and it’s not using fossil fuels or spewing greenhouse gases into the air.

6. Consider a natural, holistic diet with a high vegetable content for your dog. Eating organic and local is good for the planet and good for your health.

7. Check your household cleaning products and make sure you’re using ones that are chemical-free and therefore, not contributing to harmful runoff into our ground and water sources.

Doggies on the Catwalk 2017


We are so excited to participate in the 10th annual Doggies on the Catwalk event to benefit Canine Assistants and I need your help! 

Canine Assistants is dedicated to the education of service dogs and the people they assist, so that they may enhance and improve the lives of one another.

Recipients include those with mobility difficulties or medical concerns such as epilepsy, diabetes and cancer. Their service dogs also work in hospitals and other care facilities as well as in schools and other educational institutions.

Canine Assistants does not charge for their services, but rather relies on the generosity of people like you to make sure those recipients in need are matched with a service dog to improve their life. Please consider making a donation to my fundraising page to raise much-needed funds for this amazing charity!

Atlanta Pet Life Magazine- Winter 2016

If the Sweater Fits, Wear It.

It’s almost that time of year again… we are not talking about the holidays, but of New York Pet Fashion Week! Before all the new styles and trends are announced, we are sharing the latest in dog fashion!

We’ve all seen the photographs online of dogs in different fashionable outfits and doing fun things. Of course we want our fabulous dogs to be fabulous at all times, however we also want them to be comfortable, healthy, and warm during the winter.

Some say that dogs do not need winter coats or boots because of their fur and the pads of their paws. However, it is our opinion that all of that is dependent on their breed, size, and age. If your pet does not have a heavy coat of fur, or is hesitant to go outside in the cold, it may be time to invest in some fashionable winter clothing such as like a coat, sweater, hoodie, or booties.

Where your pets grow up will determine if they are equipped to handle colder weather. By nature, some dogs are built to handle the cooler weather better than others. Not only are some dogs made for cold weather, they may actually prefer it. However, if those winter-ready dogs were born and raised in a warm climate, they may not be ready for cold weather if relocated from their homes.
As always, we can’t stress it enough, measure your pet! Get the proper measurements for your dog to make sure you have the perfect fit that does not choke or squeeze your pet. When dressing your dog, you want to ensure that they are comfortable and can continue with daily activities without being held back by their new fabulous attire.
Dog fashion is in style all year round for some pet owners, but make sure you pet is happy, warm, safe, and comfortable all winter long.

How to measure

1.) The Broadest part of the chest (shown as Chest on the illustration above) For chest measurement, measure the chest at its widest point, which is typically right behind the front legs. If the dog has a large girth, going up a size in the top line measurement is always a smart choice, since some additional fabric will be used up.

2.) The Length of the backbone (shown as Back Length on the illustration above) Measuring should be done along the dog's backbone from the base of the head to the base of the tail. This is from the base of where the collar rests to where the tail is attached. The measurements you see on all our apparel indicate this top line measurement. However, it's important that the dog's girth be taken into account as well as the top line measurement.

3.) The Circumstances of the neck (shown as Neck on the illustration above) The neck size determine whether the dog will be comfortable wearing clothing. If the neck is too tight, the dog would be hard to breath. There are different sizing ranges for different types of garments, due to how binding or flexible the material used is. The most important is the chest size, so if the chest size is ok the other will not matter.
