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.
Did you know that 63% of American house holds have pets? Dog gifts this holiday season are all about personalization, customization and keeping them safe and healthy.
From human-grade dog food tailored for your specific dog delivered right to your door, to dog DNA test kits that not only give you the fluffy breed reveal, but teach you about potential genetic diseases for your dog. It’s all about caring for your dog as an unique individual not just as generic breed or dog.
Check out my latest TV appearance on the Morning Blend and holiday gift pet gift ideas below. Happy shopping PupStylers!
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!

I was frantic and tearing my hair out after learning of a last minute business trip and the need to bow out of taking the lovey Mei Mei to a guest spot on the Wendy Williams show runway!
Well Mei Mei wasn’t having her turn on the runway taken away so what were my options?
