One of the fastest expanding sectors in the pet space is home furnishings. It varies from the modern & serious, traditional Americana, Euro-sleek to cheeky fun.

The PupStyle office has a tradition of “cupcake friday’s”  where we end the day pigging out on cupcakes.  We thought it was time to show you how your dog can have sweet dreams.

Beerd van Stokkum designs these cool conversation piece cupcake dog beds, that also can be used as a sand box, a plant holder perhaps even a dog bath tub?  They offer round cushion inserts for ultra fluff.

If you plan on Glamping with your fur-baby this summer, you need me!

I protect against fleas and ticks so your dog won’t itch. I’m fashionable and functional at the same time. I also protect against seasonal outdoor environments like wind, rain, dirt, sand, snow and harsh UV rays.  But what am I?

I am a line of uniquely designed and durable full body coats for dogs from Zippy Dynamics! The line consists of five different stylish weather and bug resistant dog body suits ideal for protection your pup during this summer’s Glamping trip. Each suit features a main zipper that extends along the entire back and zippers on each pant leg of the suite.

The suit also has adjustable cords which make it easy to put on and provide a custom fit for the dog. Also they have elastic inserts to make it comfortable and give your dog free range of motion. So whether your pooch is swimming in a lake or digging in the dirt, they can be easily protected from ticks and getting all muddy. Think about it do you really enjoy giving you dirty dog a bath….I know I don’t!

So no matter what you and your canine are doing, they can be stylish, comfortable and protected when they are wearing Zippy Dynamics dog suits $99.99!  We love!
