PupStyle.com Founder, Dara Foster chats with Pittsburg Magazine about the growing nationwide trend of home owners & pet parents custom designing and remodeling their homes to be pet friendly. Check out the article below!
“The Johnsons and their home are part of a larger trend emerging nationwide, says Dara Foster, pet stylist, contributor to NBC’s “Today” and other TV shows and founder of PupStyle.com. The move toward more pet-friendly home design is linked to a cultural shift occurring over the last few years, she says. “We used to call ourselves ‘pet owners.’ Now, it’s ‘pet parents,’” Foster says. “It’s a full-on lifestyle. We treat them like children.”
“As the trend of catering to pets through home design continues to grow, Foster expects even more creative options to emerge.
“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” she says. “It’s just getting bigger and more lavish by the minute.”
