Dog Poop Bag Holder Nominated for 2021 ETSY Design Award

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.

Dog Leotards- Laugh or Cry? Product Review of Shed Defender

Doggie DON’T!

I’ve been reviewing dog products and dog fashion at PupStyle for over 16 years and just when I think I’ve seen it all, a new idea creeps up that has me wondering if I should laugh, cry or rejoice? Yes, I’ve styled a pug to look like Olivia Newton on Wendy Willams for a dog fashion show, but this new dog Onesie by  Shed Defender – Putting Dog Hair in its Place – Red – XS takes “Lets Get Physical” to a new level.

This one-piece dog suite was designed to protect your home and car from unwanted dog shedding but the founder, Tyson Walters  also found it useful for protecting surgical site wounds and claims it might be able to replace the cone of shame. The company also markets this for reducing anxiety and protecting your dogs coat from dirt and wet sand at the beach for example.

Shed defender product review

In theory this seems like a handy idea, but after putting the product to the test on my 9th month old puppy Norman, I see it as more of a torture device. The cut and colors of the suit are stylish and would look cute styled with a hoodie, for an “active wear look” but my PupStyler became very anxious and started biting and pulling on the legs to get it off.  Norman is very mellow and usually lets me dress him up in anything but he was angry at the Shed Defender!

Norman is also ultra fluffy and I found it impossible to zip up the suite without getting his hair stuck in the zipper. I also had to be VERY careful not to zip up his “jewels” in the process because it’s designed to cover literally everything under the belly. In order for the dog to pee, you must unzip it or else you get a leotard loaded with pee and poo.

Product review of the Shed Defender

Dog onesies are not anything new in pet fashion but the most successful designs leave an opening for the dog to do it’s business and avoid zippers at all cost on the underbelly. Velcro or buttons  would be a safer design option to consider. I can’t say all dogs will react like Norman and some may actually like it but to test it out you will have to drop $39.00. You be the judge.

Queen Mary 2 Cruise Ship Doubles Kennel Size – $132 Million Remastering

As pet travel continues to soar in the United States, Cunard’s luxury cruise liner the Queen Mary 2 doubled it pet kennel size during it’s $132 million remastering. The ship now offers 24 kennels, pet owner’s lounge, pet playground and a pet fashion partnership with British sportswear brand, Barbour.

Of course any pooch cruising in luxury requires constant attention and care. Queen Mary 2’s kennel program is overseen by a full-time Kennel Master who takes care of daily responsibilities including feeding and walking pets and cleaning the ship’s kennels. Before the animals arrive, the Kennel Master compiles a list of likes and needs, which he keeps on hand during the cruise.

Like all Cunard passengers, Cunard’s kennel guests cruise in the lap of luxury. Their journey includes freshly baked biscuits at turn-down; a choice of new beds, blankets, and toys; and even a QM2-logoed coat and stainless steel bowl. The QM2 is also equipped with dog and cat life preservers for the ultimate in safety.

If a fancy QM2-logoed coat isn’t enough, guests can purchase luxurious, classic pet beds and waxed Barbour plaid rain coats and collars to match their stylish owners.

Cruising with your pet isn’t new for celebrities. In the 1950s, Elizabeth Taylor brought her pampered puppies onboard the original Queen Mary and exercised them regularly on the ship’s sports deck.  She even ordered custom meals for them from the fish chef.

Cunard’s pet friendly policy dates back 175 years to the maiden voyage of the Britannia in 1840 when the ship sailed with a cow to provide fresh milk for passengers. Years later, Cunard ocean liners sailed thoroughbred racehorses. Rin-Tin-Tin, star of 36 silent films, also traveled with Cunard on the Berengaria.

The Large Dog Bed in Briquette  is classic, sturdy, soft and luxurious. A water resistant cotton cover (great for any accidents or puppies in training) is filled with goose feathers for a soft, cozy slumber.  They were smart to design this with a water-resistant, breathable and bacteria resistant inner liner that protects the feathers and down at a retail price of $230.00.

Shinola’s Signature Foot Ball Collar screams Detroit with classy quality you expect from a luxury brand. The design has a unisex feeling yet leans a little more on masculine side.
