Doggone Cute Home Accessories
We also love the leash and collar collection (starting at $18) from South Carolina company Harry Barker. With so many fun color and pattern options, you’d never guess they’re made of recycled plastic. www.harrybarker.com
While perfect for the frivolous task of holding dog outfits, Ladybug Art’s adorable hand-painted wood hangers (3 for $36) would also be great in a kid’s room. Made in Richmond, Virginia, the dog-themed hangers come in 3 colors with 10 different breed silhouettes. Other designs are also available. www.ladybug-art.com
We want our dogs to be comfy, but available pet beds are often eyesores.
Go ahead and buy that unattractive dog pillow, choose a durable outdoor fabric that coordinates with your decorating scheme, and make a simple slipcover (or have it made). You’ll get a custom look for the price of fabric and labor. The team at Calico Corners fashioned this pillow using Dotted Batik in Indigo with a trim of Bamboo Check in Ocean, both from Tommy Bahama. www.calicocorners.com
Not ready to make the commitment? Give the Scotch Fur Fighter Hair Remover ($9.99) a try. Its Microtrap grippers provide a quick and convenient step up from a roll of tape.
