How To Keep Your Fancy Pet Swag Looking Its Best

A few weeks ago I shared a post entitled ‘how to get the best swag for less’. Based on the Instagram feedback, it seemed to strike a chord with you style-savvy, fancy product loving pack.

While more expensive, quality petwear and accessories are generally designed to stand the test of time, to get the best return on your investment you have to give your items some TLC to ensure they look tip top in the park and beyond. And even though some of your dog’s petwear might be getting put away for summer, ensure that they are clean before storing because moths are attracted to dirt and stains – and a hole-ridden doggy knit isn't going to win your pooch best in show!

To help you become a domestic dog-ess, I’ve enlisted the help of some of our favourite premium pet brands to bring you tips on how to keep your fancy pet swag looking its best.

Woof_Models_Pet_Art.jpg

We’re forsaking a Valentine’s gift guide this year, as there’s already a cute one from yours truly, over on the animal pages of Townandcountry.co.uk, although for a last minute addition head to The Artisan Pet Deli for tasty heart-shaped treats galore.

This post is all about pet art, which is probably one of the most heartfelt gifts you could get a dog lover. While art is very much in the eye of the beholder here’s the list of who has caught ours. Some are ready-to-go of your fave breeds, whereas others are available bespoke to your actual dog. Many of the featured artists also offer greeting cards, bags, wrapping paper and more so be sure to check out their online shops.

Woof Guide | Discovering Dog Friendly Seven Dials

We've been stalling on our first post of 2016, as we wanted to kick off the year with this bobby-dazzler of a photo-shoot with pet photographer Rachel Oates, taken for the latest issue of Dog Friendly Magazine

Our setting was Seven Dials, a truly gorgeous area tucked between Covent Garden and Soho – and one of our all time favourite shopping and hangout spots. Dog Friendly asked if we’d be kind enough to visit Bow Wow London, the award-winning dog shop to see what all the fuss was about, as well as sniffing out some of their dog-friendly neighbours.

Self Improvement | Working on My Canine-Snappin’ Skills

dog-with-camera-wallpaper.jpg

I’ve never been one to share much of my own photography on Barkarama, mainly due to the fact that I’m not very good or confident with a camera. I envy the skills of fashion and lifestyle bloggers, who get snap happy to create beautiful/stylish/inspiring content, and with such a handsome boy as Basil, my skill shortage has been frustrating the hell out of me. I was fortunate enough to receive a hand-me-down SLR from my dad but as someone who prefers to learn by doing, I couldn’t be faffed with the manual and I’ve been stuck in ‘Auto’ mode ever since.
