They say that dogs are a human's best friend. We totally get it.
To celebrate our love of furry pals, we've pulled together a few pet brands doing it best. From makers of healthy food to those who create cute accessories, these brands are the best way to treat your little floofball.
Sure, monogramming your wallet and phone case is nice, but how about your pet accessories? The team behind BOco are dedicated pooch owners and believe a pet’s accessories should be just as unique as their personalities. Each collar and lead in BOco’s collection is created from premium pebbled leather and is available in a range of vibrant colours – think aqua, rose quartz and royal blue. You’ll also have the option to select from gold or silver hardware. And yes, the BOco team will soon be adding monogramming to the range, making for a more pawsonal touch.
It’s a simple enough concept: you wouldn’t eat the same thing every day, so why should your dog? Pawleo is a Melbourne-based business creating handmade, raw dog food, pawfect for those wanting to feed their puppers natural and nutritious food. Pawleo changes its ingredients every week, in order to give your dog a wide and varied diet. Just order online and it’ll be delivered to your door. How easy’s that? Your pooch will only be eating human-quality food like meat, fish, bones, eggs, fruit and veggies, with everything grain-free and fresh.

Found & Hound
When it comes to cute, dogs in bandannas takes the cake. Found & Hound launched at Dogapalooza in 2016, with a collection of carefully handmade bandannas, bowties and collars (we’re talking actual business shirt collars, FYI). Crafted from vintage textiles in Melbourne, F&H can tailor its designs to fit the biggest Great Dane to the smallest Chihuahua. You’re also doing a good deed when you purchase an F&H piece. A portion of every Found & Hound sale is donated to Pets Of The Homeless Australia, to raise awareness and provide help to pets of people experiencing or facing homelessness.
Big & Little Dogs
Harnesses are an ideal way to make sure your furry pals are comfortable and safe when they walk. Brisbane-based business, Big & Little Dogs, began with a struggle to find harnesses that would fit different-sized dogs properly. The solution came in the form of cute-to-boot printed harnesses that are reversible and adjustable. If you feel like decking out your pup a little more, there’s also an offering of collars, leashes and bowties in an array of patterns and colours. Everything has been designed for maximum comfort to keep your pooch happy.
