Let’s not be shy about talking about dog poop. It’s a part of pet parenthood we all have to “handle”. You might as well make it stylish and invest in a pretty, personalized poo bag holder that attaches to a dog leash.
The pet product category of all things “poop” has grown so much that your dog’s poop bag holder has become a bit of a status symbol at the dog park. Etsy is even looking at poop bag holders as something that can be beautifully designed as illustrated by SPRI Studios being featured as a 2021 Etsy Design Award Finalist.
Handmade from sustainably sourced, premium quality British leather and made in the UK. It’s a clever origami design that’s seamless with no need for stitching and held tight by a secure popper. Choose from fuchsia pink, mint green, tan brown, black, lilac, orange or leopard print leather, and personalized with your initials or your dog’s name in gold foil.
These also make great gift ideas for your pet sitter or dog walker who do a LOT of poo picking up. Not a bad price at $37.66 each.
Nothing barks PupStyle louder than chic winter gloves with dog in the palms of your hands. Walking your dog in style just got warmer thanks to TalkingGloves in Istanbul, Turkey. They hand craft these sassy accessories from a soft lambswool blend making them soft and toasty.
Most of the designs are unisex in style and color and both kids and adults love them. They make a great holiday gift and fashion piece. The minimalist dog shapes keep them looking clean and modern.
Pair these with a plaid or checked scarf and your favorite torn jeans and leather boots for a perfect fall/winter look! They also offer cat versions for the feline lovers out there so it’s easy one stop gift shopping.
The fingerless gloves are ideal for the multi tasking dog walker. You can keep a tight grip on the leash, easily pull out pick-up bags from your pocket and answer texts all while flawlessly drinking a latte.
A really special gift at $36 plus shipping and handling.
Esty.com is always a treasure trove of creativity and humor. Decaliciouscom based in Sacramento, CA has created a a funny vinyl decal of a dog doing what all dogs naturally do but they cleverly placed it smack on the back of Apple’s iPad. Given the drop in the quality of Apple products since Steve’s death, I am sure a lot of disgruntled Apple users will find this sticker intelligently placed.
However, this decal can be placed on your car, computer, window or any other place you want to stick it. This decal is also a nice reminder to “pick-it-up”! This slice of humor can be yours for $2.25
Let’s be honest, if I were a dog and found myself lost I might utter the words “Oh Sh*t I am lost!” then hope some nice human finds me, gives me a massive piece of chicken and brings me home.
Michigan artist Sprout1world on Etsy.com, hand-makes these unique tung and cheek, personalized dog tags that say what most pet parents are and dogs are probably thinking. They also have a hip vintage vibe that lends a timeless feeling to a timeless phrase. A great deal at $22!

So what to do with that old wine barrel you picked up at a flea market years ago and it’s been collecting dust in the basement? Keep using it as an end table or flower pot? Nah, Rock Creek Furniture Company at Etsy.com came up with a really smart DIY idea that you can try yourself or buy from them.
Beautifully , aged reclaimed wine barrels are turned into stylish dog beds and feeders that you can’t find at a mass retailer. This Colorado based company uses barrels from reclaimed American or French oak which are carefully reinforced, sanded and and sprayed with a high-quality clear finish for a lasting product.
You can change the feeling of the bed easily by experimenting with different fabrics for the cushion. Plaids will give this a classic country look while bold modern prints make it edgy and cool.
A reversible cushion with fleece on one side is a great way to add warmth for winter.
This can be yours for the same price as a case of vintage vino-$250 plus shipping.
