The Dog Squad was established in 2003 when fashion designer Laurie Patrick took home her Cairn terrier, Teddy, from a local pet store who was giving him away. Inspired by Teddy and her 20 year background as a fashion designer, she set out to create a line of “fashion for the discriminating dog.”
Now, as both a design resource and online retailer, The Dog Squad, offers a variety of fashion forward products that reflect Laurie’s design signature; from bling collars and Swarovski crystal necklaces to attitude tee shirts and sherpa jackets. Inspired by fashion trends, the line has also garnered attention in the “human” market where she has created special matching people tee shirts, sleep shirts and brooches. The Dog Squad is available online and in dog boutiques across the nation, including Hawaii.
Designer and founder, Laurie Patrick, has worked as a fashion designer for over 20 years. She has designed and merchandised everything from sportswear to swimwear collections for prestigious companies as Guess, BCBG and Catalina Swimwear. In 1992 she was nominated for the Dallas Fashion Award for the creation and design of “London Beat,” an edgy swimwear/bodywear line.
