8 Products for Your Pets

These products are certain to keep you out of the doghouse.




Fall style isn’t just for fashion-conscious humans. Keep your dog looking dapper with a bow tie from K9 Dine & Design ($8), dashing with a bandana from The Woof Gang Shop (starting at $15) or darling with a colourful, custom collar made by Nearly Naked Neckwear (prices vary). All of these companies are Calgary-based and create their products locally.
