As employers look for more work perks and ways to retain happy employees, bringing your dog to the office is becoming more popular than ever before. When Chewy.com needed fall fashion and style tips, they called PupStyle Founder and Pet Style Expert, Dara Foster to get the scoop.
Check out Dara’s interview with Sophia Kercher from BeChewy.com about stylish ways to take your dog to the office this Fall.
“According to recent studies, an increasing number of pet parents are bringing their furry loved ones along with them to work: Not only have 60 percent of surveyed pet parents previously left a job because it did not allow them to bring their pet to work, but 70 percent also said they’d accept lower pay to land a pet-friendly job—and that’s saying something.
“It’s been really interesting to see that as work attire has become more casual—with more people doing hybrid or remote work—pet carrier bags have become more casual,” says Foster. “Dog dads are really embracing pet carriers for both cats and dogs, and items are much more unisex as they bring in their pets to work.”
Foster would know. She has written her blog PupStyle.com for over a decade, as well as five children’s books about dogs, including “PupStyle: When I Grow Up,” which features dogs styled as different career professions that kids can learn about and aspire to.”

Contrary to outer appearances, the smallest toy dog breeds – even the ones who might on occasion wear bowties and top hats – are still related to the mighty wolf.
So despite the style choices, these dogs still require a diet resembling what their ancestors ate in the wild. PupStyle.com CEO, Mr. Oliver is no exception and became super WILD and frisky after his recent protein packed Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ lunch.
The high-protein kibble, with 20 grams of protein, means Oliver can maintain his healthy waistline for all of the summer fashion photo shoots and still have the energy to scope out other dogs to boss around.
Oliver is so wild after his tasty lunch that he’s attempting to hack the nutrition code of Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™.
Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ makes Oliver so happy he forgets he having a bad hair day and eating out of a can instead of a plate-GASP!
Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ puts Oliver so in touch with his wild side that he completely forgets his manners and mistakes tires for trees…OOPS!
Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ is formulated to satisfy your dog’s wild side and even the most pampered pet’s ancestral cravings.

The National Retail Federation estimates that American’s will spend a whopping $350 million this year on pet Halloween costumes. Finally the days are winding down when the neighbors call you the “crazy dog person” who dresses up their dog.
I am often asked this question “Dara, I can’t decide on what to dress my dog up as for Halloween. What is your advice?”
Tune into the Better Show October 28,2014 for my Halloween dog costume trends fashion show and tips for choosing the right costume. Check local listings for time, but in the mean time you can read my tips below to help you get started.
1. Age–older dogs are less likely to chew on a costume unlike a teething puppy who might turn it chew toy and possibly choke on materials.
2. Size & Shape-think about the size and shape of your dog. A large Yellow Lab or Bulldog might make a better Hamburger than a poodle.
3. Measure your dog carefully-Take careful measurements of your dogs chest, length of his body from base of neck to base of tail, weight, neck and waist. Be sure to compare your dogs measurements to the size chart on the costume. You would be surprised at how being one once off on your measurements and blow your entire costume idea.
4. Brush and groom your dog-Give your dog a through brushing before putting the costume on. It will reduce loose pet hair on the costume and your pooch will look extra spiffy!
