Because Dogs Are Life

What We Considered
Time after time we read that dogs are a man’s best friend, and it’s true. Our pups do so much for us– snuggling, listening and generating awesome social media content –so it’s time we start thinking about what we can do for them.
Dogs are part of the family and deserve to be treated like such. And since they can’t actually tell us what they want, we’ll have to infer it from their actions: A refusal to eat Purina puppy chow that’s been on the shelf since the beginning of time = a demand for yummier food. That long judgmental stare = a request for a new trendy collar. Call them high maintenance, but can you blame ‘em for wanting fresh, healthy dog food from The Farmer’s Dog or Ollie? It tastes better and helps to prevent pet obesity, diabetes, and cancer. The request for new toys and accessories? Well fine, perhaps that’s a tad high maintenance...but guess who they learned it from?
Spoiling our pups with the latest and greatest is sure to get their tail wagging. We’ve rounded up the best online dog brands - from leashes and beds, to foods and toys. And don’t forget to take your good boy or girl on a nice long walk to celebrate your purchase - because time outside is good for your health too.

Meet Wild One, a Brooklyn-Based pup startup that’s all about function with a chic twist. They’re out to make your walks, subway commutes and park visits better - and as busy dog PAWrents you definitely deserve that. Plus, with matching collar and leash sets your pups will feel just as fashion-forward as you do, putting a little extra bounce in their step when they pass the other doggos on the sidewalk. Wild One uses a strong poly-flex material commonly used for mountain gear, which means less rubbing, pulling, and an odor-free leash experience for both of you.
Just like us humans, dogs can have their meals freshly delivered and ready to go. Instead of lugging that thirty pound bag of kibble out of the pet store, try Ollie. Their specially designed formulas make sure our pups are getting the chow they need to be ready for their next game of tug-of-war. All you have to do is fill out a profile - but this time for your dog– and their pros will customize a meal plan sure to get them drooling.
The Farmer's Dog
Our friends over at The Farmer’s Dog are rethinking pet food. Get this - their food is Human Grade-USDA which means it’s technically good enough for us to eat too. Their personalized guide lets us fill out all of the important info, including allergies and health issues, so our pups are sure to get a recipe best suited for them. There’s no denying they deserve the best fresh and healthy food options, so it’s time to upgrade to food that will take center stage in their puppy dreams.
BarkShop from BarkBox
We all know how Barkbox has revolutionised the way we get our pups presents, but if you just can’t wait until the end of the month to spoil your pup - or if you have subscription commitment issues - you can head over to BarkShop. Here, you can shop for toys, treats and chews that will make your pups feel trendy as heck. And even if you aren’t in the market for new toys, we highly recommend you scroll through for your own amusement. With plush toy names like Doggo Dogo Bill Y’All, Gordon the Giant Sloth and Lotsa Licks Froyo, you know you can’t go wrong.
Our dogs spend half of their lives sleeping, so Casper has made it their mission to give our furry friends a cozy bed with the same pressure-relieving memory foam that we’ve come to love ourselves. These dog beds are made out of durable materials, so your rowdy pup can dig all the way to China, without the mess. At the end of the day, there’s nothing better than knowing your pup had a restful sleep after his long trip to the dog park.
Brentwood Home, a Los Angeles Based company, knows the value of a great dog. Their top-notch dog beds offer orthopedic support for our older buds - and as our pups age we’ve gotta do all we can to keep them comfy. These beds are made with non-toxic materials and are so cozy that we’ll be begging our dogs to come hang out with us on the couch.
Leonard and Church
Here’s an opportunity for our poised and refined doggo to show off their status. Influencer Arden Cho, one of the founders of Leonard & Church, adopted her lifelong pal Chewy and decided to add high quality dog accessories to the company’s product mix. Their stunning full-grain leather and herringbone tweed collars and leashes are sure to keep your best pal lookin’ fly.
