Whether you're a new dog parent or you've already got more than one furry family member at home, shopping for your pet can be a lot of fun!
But they aren't the only ones who can enjoy some awesome products. Below are a few spotlights of some amazing vendors who offer a range of items for dogs and dog lovers alike!
Winks and Whiskers
One of the only companies out there of its kind, Winks & Whiskers is an apparel company for pet parents! Started by Eric and Kayla (a husband and wife team!), this company sells pet parent apparel that not only looks and feels trendy, but also gives back!
10% off all profits is donated back to animal charities, and over the last two years they've donated over $4,000! And they have a bunch of super cute designs, including ones with dog-oriented phrases, lots of small paw prints, and other pet parent slogans you're bound to love. They even have a few new camping themed ones that are perfect for the summer season!
Another company I love is Mutthead, which offers a wide selection of stylish collars for dogs (and cats!). They specialize in offering buckle and martingale dog collars for dogs of all sizes, but also offer leashes, bow ties, and bandanas as well.
And if you don't see a fabric you love in the type of product you're looking for, you can contact them to see if you can order something custom for your pet!
For an eco-friendly shopping option, check out Earthdog's hemp collars, leashes and dog beds -- all handmade here in the US! They've been around for 20 years now -- or as they say on their website, "140 dog years" -- and they donate 10% of their profits to Kody's Fund, a non-profit that funds spay and neuter programs.
If you love shopping at the Franklin Farmer's Market, you may have seen the booth for the Barker's Market, a family-owned business right here in Nashville.
They make handcrafted pet apparel and all-natural pet treats -- everything from bandanas, leashes and collars to doggy donuts and cat treats! The Barker's Market also donates 10% of their profits to local pet charities that share their values by promoting animal health and happiness. :)
