Holiday Gift Guide: For the Well-Dressed Canine


Holiday Gift Guide: For the Well-Dressed Canine

December 11, 2012

Most of us at Remodelista have owned dogs at some point in our lives, but we aren’t experts. So naturally we turned to the editorial team at Dogster (literally turned around; we sit across from the editorial team at our SF office). Read on for Dogster Editor-in-Chief Janine Kahn‘s gift guide for the dog owner, featuring ideas that marry form with function.

N.B.: To make sure we’ve got everyone on your list covered, see all of our gift guides to date in our House Gifts section.

700 tag collar dogs

Above: I stumbled upon mom-and-pop leash and collar purveyor Sit Up N’ Beg at a dog show, and instantly fell in love. My Italian greyhound, Mr. Moxie (above L), has several tag collars from them, as well as a leash and martingale. The brand uses buttery soft yet strong elk and deerskin leathers as opposed to flimsier lamb or pig skin. The Soho Tag Collar Moxie models above sells for $18. Dog lady pro tip: I like to slip a Boomerang dog tag along these tag collars with my contact information engraved–I like that it doesn’t jingle when Moxie walks.

700 animal soap aesop

Above: For those times–and there are plenty at my house–where the dog could use some deodorizing, there’s the Animal Fur Cleanser by Aesop ($35). The Melbourne-based brand traffics primarily in human skin care, but their lone pet product is well-loved; likely because pet parents prefer Animal’s mint and citrus notes to eau de dog park.

700 dog rope toys

Above: No canine gift guide would be complete without toys, and UK purveyor Mungo & Maud’s smart designs are always on my wish list. Their Cotton Rope Tug and Toss Toys are perfect for playing tug or fetch, and go for $10 (small) to $12.50 (large).

700 cloud dog beds jpeg

Above: Give your dog the comforts of home on the road with the Travel Dog Bed from Berlin-based Cloud 7. Choose from an organic cotton canvas or hemp-cotton hybrid exterior with either polyester or sheep’s wool padding on the inside. Medium travel beds run €99 while the larger edition is €129.

700 dog bowls ceramics jpeg

Above: Another aesthetic delight from Cloud 7 is their collection of custom Dog Bowls. Each is handmade and held to traditional craftsmanship standards, and the finished product is close to a work of art. Prices range from €39 for the small bowl, €59 for the medium, and €75 for the large.

Holiday Gift Guide For the WellDressed Canine portrait 8

Above: If aromatherapy is relaxing for two-leggers, imagine how much more intense it could be for a creature with a heightened sense of smell. Sniff Pet Candles were created with this thought in mind, and this line not only has such dog-appropriate scents such as “Splendor in the Grass,” and “Fart & Away” (which contains a deodorizing mix of eland yang, tuberose, white tea, and fennel if you’re curious)–a portion of the proceeds go to homeless pets. Each full-sized candle is $38.

700 reversible rescue coat

Above: Turn your rescue into an haute dog with the well-crafted Reversible Rescue Coat from Found My Animal (made by Billy Wolf: Fine K-9 Coatery). One side features waxed cotton canvas in chocolate brown and the other plaid wool. The bright orange rescue badge is a thoughtful touch. Extra small and small retail for $68, larger sizes are priced at $72.
