Shopping from the comfort of your chair!

Retail – Antlers (Roux's fave!)
Acadia Antlers - We have purchased antlers from this small business since 2015 - top quality, long-lasting chews and excellent customer service! The owner often attends pet expos so you may be able pick some up directly, depending on where you live.

Retail – Athleisure with a Twist - Rescued Hearts - Founded by big-hearted animal lovers, Rescued Hearts offers great gear made in the USA! They also donate 10% of all proceeds to animal rescue groups so supporting their small business is a win-win!

Retail – Dinovite Nutritional Supplements - Roux has been a Dinovite user since we first brought him home in 2015. Now that we home cook for both pups, having their micronutrients covered is critical and Dinovite delivers! They also have a 90-day risk free offer so you can see for yourself.

Retail – Doggie DNA Kits
Embark DNA Kits - Trusted resources, excellent customer service and timely processing make this our top pick! Multiple kits you can choose from to suit your needs -- from breed identification to health kits.

Retail – Accessories No.2 Tote - Great product for responsible pet owners who are active and maybe don't want to openly carry "rented food" on the rest of the hike or jog! (I am also all for anything that helps keep pet waste OFF the streets and public grasses and this makes it so convenient and easy for people to be responsible!) Local pet stores can also contact the maker directly for wholesale information.

Retail Dog Accessories - Handcrafted Collars (via Etsy) Affluent Dogs - High quality, handcrafted dog collars for the special pups in your life, made with love by a devoted dog mom!

Retail – Collars, Accessories, etc.
Pawcific North Designs- Beautiful, handcrated products of the highest quality (and a veteran, woman-owned small business).

Retail – Harnesses
USA Dog Shop/Freedom No Pull Harness- We used these harnesses with our first generation of catahoulas so we have quite a history with them and they are the only harness we use with Roux and Gracie. We LOVE them! You can send your dog's measurements and the harness will arrive basically fitted for your pup. Great for training (and my favorite part - secure for travel walks, especially since there is a two-clip leash you can purchase too). So many colors and color combos - we have at least six of these because a dog needs options. :) There is also a chew warranty (which we used two or three times when Roux was a puppy).

Retail – Memorials
Online resource for pet memorial jewelry (I have used them and recommend their products) can be viewed at Perfect Memorials). I still wear Bandit's ashes each day and doing so brings me comfort.

Retail – Artist **
Natalie Spinelli - We personally have several original works created by this incredibly talented artist.

Retail – Artist **
Louise Hall with Aubergine Studio - recently met the artist and saw her work in person - different style than above noted artist; great work!

Retail – Artist **
Rick Sargent- recent connection - go check out his work!

Retail – Artist **
Max T Art - caricature artist - so fun and easy to work with!! Follow him on Facebook here.

Retail – Artist ** Michele Levani Art - lovely work!

Retail – Artist ** Enzomatic Watercolor - beautiful watercolor works from this dog-loving artist!

** Clients who opt to commission a painting and need one or more high resolution digitals for the artist - I will send the image(s) directly to the artist for you at no charge to you.
