This year Dog Collar Boutique is adding a host of new products! We are expanding existing categories like collars and harnesses, and exploring new items such as retractable leashes and training tools. In 2011 we want to bring you the widest selection of high quality dog collars available online, and continue to offer more unique merchandise for your dog’s travel, outdoor, training, and special occasion needs. Read on to see some spectacular items we’ve recently added.
We have long wanted to get into the retractable lead market, but could not find the right product to represent our dedication to quality and fashion. Pet store retractables are nothing new, and we pride ourselves on selling only what you can’t get at the big box store. At the other end of the fashion spectrum, we found some bejeweled retractable leads that offered the bling we were looking for in a retractable, but they were simply too pricey and delicate to be practical — a retractable lead is usually purchased for a daily walker, so it has to be sturdy as well as stylish! At the 2010 Backer trade show we finally found a retractable that lives up to our high standards. Dog fashion designers 26 Bars and a Band create unique printed retractable leashes in everything from leopard print to houndstooth to skulls and monkeys. Their cute harnesses for small dogs come in prints to match the retractable leads, but each lead is stylish enough to work on its own, and take a beating from feisty pups up to 28 lbs. Check out 26 Bars and a Band and make sure to watch their helpful video on how to fit your pup for a harness.
Fashion Dog Carriers with an Edge
We’ve always sniffed out the best in haute couture carriers in leather and high end fabrics, but not until this year did we find a dealer of faux animal skin accessories that resemble today’s most sought after over-sized purses and hobo bags. Backbone makes faux croc and faux snakeskin dog carriers that are dazzling and durable, made of a coated leather that’s easy to clean (the bags come with liners too, just in case your pooch has an “oops” moment). Each bag is decorated with studs, just like the look you’d find tucked under the table of any Manhattan or LA restaurant. Only your posh bag will have a special surprise hiding inside! Check out Backbone’s faux reptilian carriers, as well as their more traditional leather offerings that are just as sure to turn heads.
More ID Tags and Accessories
We’ve been slowly adding to our ID tag selection over the past year, and we now proudly offer both sterling silver and more affordable yet stylish metal tag styles. Our latest addition to our ID tags inventory is Rockin’ Doggie, a line of pewter tags that look as polished as silver but offer that edgy look your rockin’ dog wants, sporting music inspired and dog-appropriate phrases like “Bad to the Bone” and “Born to Run.” (“The Bitch is Back” might be appropriate here too, but Rockin’ Doggie didn’t go that far!) Rockin’ Doggie also designs accessories like collar charms and pendants, as well as the very first fashion poop bag dispenser we offer!
