Humans aren’t the only ones who want to look stylish. Your dogs (and even your cats) can also up their style game with the help of some locally made pet accessories. Here are four local companies making snazzy collars, leashes, bow ties and bandanas for your furry best friends.
For the pup (or pup owner) who loves pop culture, you can’t go wrong with a Drake- or Will Smith-printed bandana from Bark. The handmade cotton bandanas also come in prints ranging from cutesy florals to whales to ice cream sandwiches, while the cotton bow ties come in patterns like pineapples or plaid. Bark also offers animal-themed items for humans, including scrunchies, tote bags, mugs and key tags.
The handmade collars and leashes from Krafty Kanines come in solid colours like blue and purple or prints such as watermelons, whales and skulls. Krafty Kanines also offers hands-free leash, lead and belt sets, which attach around your waist to free up your hands.
Lola’s Leashes + Accessories offers the full gamut of pet accessories, from bandanas and bow ties to collars and leashes. Choose from more colourful options like red gingham bow ties or a rainbow collar, or opt for one of the many black-and-white print options, which feature woodland creatures, dress forms, cityscapes, penguins or a crosshatch pattern. Custom accessories can also be requested.
The Woofgang Shop’s selection of handmade collars and bandanas come in stylish, modern prints. Consider one of the spring collars in white marble, a water-resistant cork collar or one of the cozy fall bandanas that come in more than a dozen colours of plaid. For the collars, you can also choose between silver, rose gold, gold or rose buckles/chains.
