I think the title of this post sucks but I couldn’t figure out a way to word it. If you’re like me though, you probably spend a lot of money on your pet. I mean, why have a doggo if you aren’t going to spoil them? But you can easily spoil them and support various small businesses along the way. Ever since I started an Instagram account for Roxie, I’ve found tons of pet related small businesses! I’m talking everything from collars to treats to bandanas. And I am sucker for a cute bandana. I thought I’d share a few of them here. If you do like what you see, be sure to check out their Instagram accounts! You’ll find plenty of discount codes there, most of the time for 10-15% off.
If you couldn’t tell by the name, they’re a small business based out of Hawaii! They offer bow ties, bandanas, collars, and even key chains. The prices are very reasonable. I think the most expensive item comes in around $22. The patterns they offer are really fun and they just released a few Halloween fabrics! Roxie is wearing one of their lovely bandana’s in the photo above.
Along with bandana’s they offer leash holders! They have fun decals you can add onto your bandana’s as well. Roxie has a few bandana’s from them including one for Halloween.
Resin Bark offers beautiful resin dog tags. They came in all kinds of shapes including ghosts, bones, circles, and hearts! Plus the colors are stunning. You have a few fonts to choose from as well to make sure your tag is exactly what you want! If you aren’t 100% sure on what you like, they offer plenty of premade tags as well. The best thing about these tags is how light they are! If you have a dog who’s not into loud tags this might be what you’re looking for. Plus they’re easy to care for.
Moose And Lulus offer all kinds of items from treats to tags to stickers! They offer resin tags as well but normally offer theirs via drop format. That just means they make a bunch, then put them up in batches. They offer some really fun themes like “beachy” and “fall vibes.” They even offer an Alien shaped tag! Sometimes they offer customized tags as well.
Ava is a 14 year old girl who started her own pet treat company! She offers treats for both dogs and cats. The prices are a steal at just $6 a bag. They’re home made and feature limited ingredients. This is huge since a lot of pets out there have various allergies. Roxie can’t have chicken, so it can be a bit of a struggle to find treats for her. If Roxie could speak, she’d say her favorite is the Oat & Banana.
They mainly offer collars and leashes. I was trying to find something Hawkeye themed and they had the perfect purple arrow fabric. I had a leash and collar made and the quality is just fantastic. They have plenty of fun patterns like honeycomb, unicorns, leaves, geometric, floral, and more! I believe they offer cat sized collars as well.
I’m going to stop there! This is just a very small sampling of what you can find out there for your pets. I know that you can find a lot of these items at your Big Name Pet Store but why not try and switch a few things out and help support the small businesses that are out there? Especially when some people might be depending on their side gigs because their Full Time job was shut down. Just keep in mind that shipping and creating your items might take a little extra time. They’re human after all, not Amazon. Be sure to read over their shop info to see if anything is running behind, or if shipping has slowed down.
