We're all individuals, our dogs too. Everyone is different and that's a good thing because it would be boring if we were all the same.
So we love it when we discover a pet brand who positions themselves to stand out not blend in, with our pets best interests at heart.
It was on our quest to find fun products for a celebrity photoshoot a few months back that we first came across The Distinguished Dog Company and their leopard print (with a flash of pink neon) bow ties and bandanas with colourful hearts for dogs.
Who are The Distinguished Dog Company?
The Distinguished Dog Company is for dogs and their humans who want to stand out from the crowd. Designed and made in the UK, everything is made with quality and style in mind, packed full of colour and fun.
From bow ties and neckerchiefs, to toys and collars, to the iconic human WALKIES Collection of t-shirts and sweatshirts, the brand wants pet owners to accept the best and #saynotoshitcanineaccessories.
One of our favourite products from their range is the Golden Bowl because it's practical and stylish. We love the overall colour and feel and the 24-carat gold 'DD' on the front makes it a bowl unlike no other.
Tracy Andrews, the creator of The Distinguished Dog Company is inspired by her Lhasa Apso, Mr Gatsby.
She had the design of this bowl in her head for a long time and when she found a creamware potter (ensuring the bowl is made from pretty hardy stuff) in Stoke-On-Trent, she was eventually able to bring it to life.
The all-important question – how much does it cost?
Prices vary across their ranges and they ship worldwide with free shipping on all UK orders.
Their Golden Bowl comes in two sizes, small (£38) and large (£50).
