These beautiful harnesses are by RuffStuffDog.com HAND CRAFTED in leather (talk about a labor of love) and great for a Halloween fashion alternative AND can be used year round. Contact the brand directly for pricing.

A few weeks ago, I was invited to the FitBark offices in NYC for a personal demo of a new high-tech pet gadget that really impressed me on many levels. If you’re a regular PupStyle reader, you now we are highly selective and snobby and this earned an A+ rating from me.
Tech products can be complicated , often HEAVY and UGLY but FitBark seems to understand what consumers and dog owner want! They married, technology and style that allows you to track your dogs daily activity remotely via a cell phone app while keeping this device feather light-weight, intuitive and easy to attach to the dogs collar (holy REFRESHING)! They offer 5 colors and will no doubt be adding more options to in the future.
This is an awesome device if you have a new puppy and wonder “is this dog running in circles in the kitchen all day or a lump of flesh lounging on the couch?”. I really thought it could be a life saver for aging dogs because you can monitor exactly what time of day your dog is active and when it’s not.
It’s a great piece of mind if you have a sick dog you have to leave at home. You can constantly check in to see how she’s doing. It’s also a great way track your own activity and distance when you go walking with your pup. It’s a fitness gadget you can share with your dog!

While at Global Pet Expo in Feb this year, I was thrilled to find Issac Mizarahi’s new line of pet products and anxiously awaiting for be readily available. Still a bit hard to find while digging through the web, but it won’t be long!
Issac could be designing garbage bags and I would still buy them simply because I adore him and know he really is a dog lover not just a poser. He’s following a HOT pet fashion trend using a lot of different plaids but with his signature Isaac twist! His line consists of some of my favs in dog fashion like, neck ties and bow ties for boy dogs and fashion poo pick-up bags. His line is very dark in color waves so you must not be afraid to cross over to the dark side!
I’m a little obsessed with JCP right now. Not only do thier stores look amazing but they keep suprising us at every turn. Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler fuses colorful patterns, great design and quality at affordable prices in a glamorous new collection that mixes classic design and current trends.
Part of that collection are these adorable dog bowls and treat jars. A must have for the ” Happy and Chic ” pet owner!
