Nothing barks PupStyle louder than chic winter gloves with dog in the palms of your hands. Walking your dog in style just got warmer thanks to TalkingGloves in Istanbul, Turkey. They hand craft these sassy accessories from a soft lambswool blend making them soft and toasty.
Most of the designs are unisex in style and color and both kids and adults love them. They make a great holiday gift and fashion piece. The minimalist dog shapes keep them looking clean and modern.
Pair these with a plaid or checked scarf and your favorite torn jeans and leather boots for a perfect fall/winter look! They also offer cat versions for the feline lovers out there so it’s easy one stop gift shopping.
The fingerless gloves are ideal for the multi tasking dog walker. You can keep a tight grip on the leash, easily pull out pick-up bags from your pocket and answer texts all while flawlessly drinking a latte.
A really special gift at $36 plus shipping and handling.
The holiday’s are quickly approaching and I am always on the look out for unique, gifty ideas that also give back to animal charities. I tracked down the ideal adult holiday gift just about any dog dog lover would appreciate. Hand over a bottle of Chateau La Paws Chardonnay to a dog rescue advocate/party hostess and the conversation will start flowing like wine!
This brand is dedicated to funding no-kill shelters and spreading the adoption message through their cash donations and packaging. The labels feature a rotating cast of 28 different shelter dogs with stories of a few also on their web site.
“In 2015 Chateau La Paws™ & Diageo Chateau & Estates are donating $100,000 to North Shore Animal League America to help fund the great work that they do to rescue, nurture, and adopt as many dogs as possible.” says their “Our Cause” page.
North Shore Animal League is extra special to the PupStyle crew because our current CEO, Mr. Oliver was for former resident. North Shore Animal League rescued Oliver from a puppy mill down south and gave him amazing medical care until I adopted him.
Of course, I can’t fully recommend a fine wine without sampling it myself, so I paired a bottle of their Sauvignon Blanc with brie, sough dough crusty bread and red organic grapes. It was delicious! It has gentle fruit flavors of pineapple, kumquat and peach blossom creating a nice balance between sweet and savory.
A 750 ML bottle will only set you back $12.99 and you’ll feel extra good as you toast to the new year while helping shelter pets. Cheers PupStylers!!
The Handicapped Pets Foundation is and amazing organization dedicated to extending the life of Handicapped Pets by helping them move; getting the exercise they need to live long, happy, healthy lives!

Let’s be honest, Corgi’s are famous for their cute butts and I think 3D designer Eric Ho agrees. He’s taken the Corgi butt fetish to a whole new level with his genius bottle opener design. This cool 3D printed Corgi shaped bottle opener is coated in 24K gold and hangs on a key chain for stylish unlocking too.
This is is the ultimate unique gift for a Corgi lover or design junkie. Great price at $29!

As dog owners, we know dogs are one-of-a-kind natural characters whether they ride a skateboard, practice Yoga or strut around in a dapper bowtie. They make us smile, laugh and even feel better when we are sick. Regardless of what makes your dog a unique character, it’s worth sharing with the rest of the world to put a smile on someone’s face today.
Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance® Pet Foods is traveling across the continent to meet as many dogs with character as possible. You can join the fun by sharing your pet’s pic at NaturalCharacters.com. If you let your friends and family know, they can like the pic or share it on social, helping your furry pal become a featured pet in your region!

Happy 4th of July weekend PupStylers! We thought we would put a smile on your face and give you a little Independence Day dog fashion inspiration from our friends at Flicker. Please remember to think of your dogs health and safety first and foremost when dressing your pet. Have a wonderful holiday America!
Esty.com is always a treasure trove of creativity and humor. Decaliciouscom based in Sacramento, CA has created a a funny vinyl decal of a dog doing what all dogs naturally do but they cleverly placed it smack on the back of Apple’s iPad. Given the drop in the quality of Apple products since Steve’s death, I am sure a lot of disgruntled Apple users will find this sticker intelligently placed.
However, this decal can be placed on your car, computer, window or any other place you want to stick it. This decal is also a nice reminder to “pick-it-up”! This slice of humor can be yours for $2.25

Contrary to outer appearances, the smallest toy dog breeds – even the ones who might on occasion wear bowties and top hats – are still related to the mighty wolf.
So despite the style choices, these dogs still require a diet resembling what their ancestors ate in the wild. PupStyle.com CEO, Mr. Oliver is no exception and became super WILD and frisky after his recent protein packed Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ lunch.
The high-protein kibble, with 20 grams of protein, means Oliver can maintain his healthy waistline for all of the summer fashion photo shoots and still have the energy to scope out other dogs to boss around.
Oliver is so wild after his tasty lunch that he’s attempting to hack the nutrition code of Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™.
Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ makes Oliver so happy he forgets he having a bad hair day and eating out of a can instead of a plate-GASP!
Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ puts Oliver so in touch with his wild side that he completely forgets his manners and mistakes tires for trees…OOPS!
Natural Balance® Wild Pursuit™ is formulated to satisfy your dog’s wild side and even the most pampered pet’s ancestral cravings.
If you haven’t already put out your national Doughnut Day flag and ordered your dozen Krispy Kream’s then you must be living in a cave. Yes folks, today is National Doughnut Day and dogs are taking to social media in full support.
Dogs are taking selfies and posting their cute pics to social media and photo sharing sites like flickr. They are a force to be reckon with demanding their fair share of doughnuts! Happy #DoughnutDay pupstylers.
Let’s be honest, if I were a dog and found myself lost I might utter the words “Oh Sh*t I am lost!” then hope some nice human finds me, gives me a massive piece of chicken and brings me home.
Michigan artist Sprout1world on Etsy.com, hand-makes these unique tung and cheek, personalized dog tags that say what most pet parents are and dogs are probably thinking. They also have a hip vintage vibe that lends a timeless feeling to a timeless phrase. A great deal at $22!
I can’t say I recommend this for families with small children, but for grown-ups with a good sense of humor this is made for YOU!.
So what to do with that old wine barrel you picked up at a flea market years ago and it’s been collecting dust in the basement? Keep using it as an end table or flower pot? Nah, Rock Creek Furniture Company at Etsy.com came up with a really smart DIY idea that you can try yourself or buy from them.
Beautifully , aged reclaimed wine barrels are turned into stylish dog beds and feeders that you can’t find at a mass retailer. This Colorado based company uses barrels from reclaimed American or French oak which are carefully reinforced, sanded and and sprayed with a high-quality clear finish for a lasting product.
You can change the feeling of the bed easily by experimenting with different fabrics for the cushion. Plaids will give this a classic country look while bold modern prints make it edgy and cool.
A reversible cushion with fleece on one side is a great way to add warmth for winter.
This can be yours for the same price as a case of vintage vino-$250 plus shipping.
If you are a long-time PupStyle reader, you know by now we have a soft spot for those cool works of art featuring a dogs head on a human body called anthropomorphic art.
A start-up called Bark Meow is creating amazing photorealistic paintings of dogs and cats. However, they don’t just put your pets head men’s suite or the Mona Lisa, but even the wise Yoda from Star Wars! They launched crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to jump- start the biz. Show them some love by sharing and funding if you are feeling the vibe!
