Shopping For The Dog-Lover: My Top 10 Dog Brands
“Who are all those cute accessories really for, right?”
So this blog post may be a little self-indulgent—I now literally have all my fave dog brands all in one place—but I also figured, I’m sure there are other dog-parents out there who feel the same way! Whether you’re shopping for a friend or for yourself—with love from me to me—I’ve put together a list, in no particular order, of dog brands I absolutely love! From dog accessories to dog-friendly home décor, I am forever scrolling through their Instagram feeds and pinning their products to Henry’s Pinterest boards. There are of course TONS more, but for the purposes of this post, I’ve narrowed it down to 10 dog brands.
Side note: if you’re a newer puppy parent, I wouldn’t recommend splurging just yet, as your puppy grows SO fast and/or will destroy beautiful things very easily! To satisfy the shopping itch you probably now have from clicking on this post, however, here’s an Amazon store I put together full of all my favorite (affordable) dog products! You’re welcome.
I am always on a search for new dog brands and products, so if you have some fun recommendations, please link them in the comments below. Would love to hear your suggestions!
And Yes, Henry is a brand rep for a few of the dog brands below, but I would never represent a business I don’t stand behind 100%. As for the rest, these are dog brands I enjoy following online or have previously purchased from.

I link companies and their products because in my opinion, they’re good quality. The decision to purchase something is completely and totally up to you.
10 Brands I Love
Of course, my all-time fave small dog-biz is Cavology! I did all my shopping for Henry even before he came home. I am completely obsessed with this dog brand: their rope leashes in every single color you can possibly imagine—and ombré—but now they’re launching an ALL-NEW collection and I’ve fallen in love all over again! Their new line is called “The Basics” and it has everything you could ever need in terms of accessories. This Italy-inspired collection is the perfect new-dog-parent-starter-pack, and it comes in blue and pink. I’ve chosen the Limoncello set for Henry: the lemons on a blue-striped pattern give off a serious Amalfi Coast vibe—I’m travelling vicariously through my dog accessories! And their Fiori Rosa set is literally what I’d wear if I were a dog: pink everything! Check out their stunning new collection! “The Basics” go on sale Friday July 17 at noon EST and I have a little feeling they’re going to go FAST!

My mom is the best mom: for my birthday, she got me the GORGEOUS Max-Bone City Carrier Bag! I’ve had my eye on this beauty for months now. Henry is so cosy in it, I’m not sure who loves it more. They’ve recently released the Daily Walk Face Mask & Bandana Pack, which literally gives you no excuse not to wear a mask on your daily walkies. They define themselves as a luxury fashion lifestyle dog brand; every item is beautifully designed, timeless and in their words effortlessly elegant. I just love it!
I have yet to purchase from the dog brand Hound, but I think everything they do is absolutely stunning. I really appreciate their Instagram aesthetic and how they showcase their products in every picture. Every time I see one of their posts, I save it for later. The only reason I haven’t bought anything yet is because I just can’t decide! I’m quite intrigued by their Waterproof Jellies collection, especially in the “Coast” color!
Pinktail Co. might be the reason I get myself a girl dog (not to say that boys can’t wear pink, because Henry definitely has some pink accessories!) This dog brand is absolutely adorable, and for a pink-fanatic like me, I just can’t get enough. I’ve heard only great things about this dog brand, how everything is handmade to perfection and fabrics are amazing quality. One of their brand reps, and our insta-friend, a little cavalier named Aria, always makes their products look especially charming. I can’t wait to make my first purchase—I heard they have a new summer collection! I will HAVE to check that out.
I discovered this dog brand through an Instagram giveaway! I was tagged in their Dog-Mom giveaway, and after scrolling through their feed and browsing their website, I entered as well! To my surprise, I won the giveaway and received a gift card to shop their products—I love gift cards, by the way, gives me the freedom of choice! I ended up getting the Orchard Breeze and Summer Wildflowers bandanas and the Chambray Dots dog collar and bowtie set. It took a little while to receive due to COVID shipping delays, but these cute accessories were definitely worth the wait: gorgeous designs, so beautifully made! They look fabulous on Henry, and complement his wardrobe so well. I was so impressed that Henry became an ambassador. Subscribe to the weekly newsletter to get 10% off your orders!

Henry just loves his Billiebone treats! He finished them so fast, we’re definitely due for a new order. All of their delicious treats are handmade with organic ingredients, and no preservatives. Our order was personally delivered to us in the most adorable packaging! I love this local dog brand’s attention to detail. Not only do they carry delicious (now customizable!) healthy treats, but they also have super cute accessories. Henry and I love our classic matching scrunchie and bandana set!
We’re so pleased that Henry represents this local small business. Subscribe to the newsletter to enjoy 10% off your purchases!
I have heard only wonderful things about this San Francisco dog brand. They make so many different colorful accessories from bandanas to dog beds! I have so many of their products pinned to Henry’s boards. I’m especially a fan of their bone-shaped squeaky toys made from the same patterns as most of their dog apparel: everything can match!
I find Wild One to have a very similar vibe to Max-Bone, but this dog brand’s product design is definitely more minimalist. I love their modern take on the classic dog toys. Their harnesses seem a little bulky, so probably not what I would gravitate towards for Henry, but their leashes are stunning. With so many color options, there’s something for everyone. They encourage you to purchase in bundles, or as they put it “kit up”, to save. I would do it!
Three letters: O-M-G. When a friend of mine showed me this dog brand’s Instagram account, my jaw literally dropped. Just genius! Have you seen their crate?! It’s a piece of furniture: it actually doubles as an end table! This thing is a condo. I shudder just looking at my current cage-like metal structure that’s suppose to be Henry’s safe haven. Everything just seems impeccably crafted. Of course, this is on the higher end of pet products and the pricing matches that, but seriously, Fable Pets is goals. I’m just sad they don’t ship to Canada!
I don’t know how else to say it: I WANT THIS. No, I need this! According to Modern Dog Magazine, it’s “the go-to bible for dog moms everywhere”. Everything Serena Faber-Nelson does is beautiful. I am completely obsessed with her website and blog: simply stunning! It’s all so clean and organized, and easy to find any resource you need. I just love it!
Fall is here! Time to pupdate our wardrobes. Don't worry, I took care of all the scrolling & searching to help you find cute fall outfits, all in one place! Shop my Amazon store for instant shopping gratification.

Most of what I know about taking care of Henry has come from chatting with fellow dog moms and reaching out to the online dog community. As part of a new series of blog posts, I’ll be interviewing a new dog mom every week. I’ve made so many awesome encounters and I want to share them all with you!
