Watch out Etsy.com, a new market place just for small businesspeople and craftspeople who make products for dogs and dog lovers has arrived.
Introducing Hound & Co, a recently launched website where pet product designers can open their own store for free inside a market place dedicated to selling all things hound. Think Etsy.com but just for dog product crafters and designers. Sellers can easily upload photos and open up a shop and start selling within minutes.Similar to Etsy.com, they charge a fee but only 4% when your item sells and do not charge a fee for posting items which Etsy.com does.Hound & Co also gets bonus points for donating a portion of all sales to rescue organizations and building a platform where rescue groups can sign-up and post pics of adoptable pets for free. If you have a rescue organization this is just one more free area to get the word out in a space already attracting dog lovers.
It’s that time of year again where the best and the brightest in the pet industry come together in Las Vegas to claim bragging rights and strut their stuff! We are looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones.
We hear technology is making a BIG impact on products this year…can’t wait to report back. Stay tuned!

To date this charitable organization has raised $371,765.85. In the aftermath of Sandy they were everywhere collecting food and donations to distribute to those pets in need. Rock & Rawhide aims to increase adoptions and quality of life for dogs and cats in shelters, by providing distraction therapy and noise/stress reduction through the donations of toys, tough chew items, Kongs, Nylabones, bones, rawhides, blankets and more. If a dog is chewing, it’s not barking! If a cat is playing, it’s not meowing! Less noise = less stress. In turn, dogs and cats can pass their evaluations at shelters, and show more of their personality, making them more adoptable.
We heart you Rock and Rawhide! Keep on Rockin’ in 2013!
2012 was also the year of the canine in advertising and pop culture!
