How it Started
The Dog Squad online dog boutique and designer accessories line was established in 2003. It all started when fashion designer Laurie Patrick fell in love with a 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 high end pet fashion and eventually an online dog boutique for the high end pet.
What we offer
The Dog Squad dog boutique, offers a variety of fashion forward pet accessories that reflect Laurie’s design signature. Swarovski crystal ultrasuede dog collars, hand printed sweaters, tutu pet party dresses , sherpa dog coats, buttery soft faux fur dog blankets and vegan leather dog carriers all grace our line. The line has also garnered recent attention in the human market. She has created eye catching foil screenprinted tee shirts for pet owners with bold words such as 'RESCUED' or 'you had me at WOOF'. The Dog Squad is available both as an online dog boutique and in dog boutiques across the USA, Canada, Japan and France.
Note: while our dear little muse,Teddy, passed away at 15 1/2 this april, our newest additions are carrying on the traditions of The Dog Squad. Ziggy the Westie, Gigi the Silky, and Tulip the Teddy Bear Toy Poodle all love to model fashion here at The Dog Squad. Also, the treats, free blankets and beds are great too!
