A Look At The Chic Pet Collection: Dog & Crow

Kate Horsman Leader of The Pack: Dog & Crow

Home furnishings and a well dressed closet are all important things, but really they mean nothing if you have no one to share them with. Of course, another human-being companion would suffice, but I am thinking more along the lines of a furry four legged partner.  A Dog.

Our dogs are our best of friends...therefore, we should have nothing but the best for them when it comes to their needs and their accessories. Really, the "blinged" faux diamond collars and the hot pink pet beds are truly passé. Luckily, the posh yet demure pet retail line, Dog & Crow has an effortless take on all things pet related.

The company, Dog & Crow was stated by Interior Designer, Kate Horsman. Horsman used her design background when creating her company, "Dog & Crow brings design, function, and philanthropy into the homes of dog lovers and their furry friends."

Horsman wanted to create pet products for her dog, Sarge and others that were chic, neutral, and versatile. The gaudy bedazzled leashes and zebra printed pet blankets were aesthetically too much and the basic pet store finds weren't enough...Voila! Dog & Crow was born--just about...

Horsman tells the underlying story about how the fine pet line truly came into existence, stating, "The story of DOG & CROW is born out of the love of an animal. Sarge, a handsome and stoic Rottweiler rescued by Kate six years ago, was enamored by crows." 

The day Sarge died and there afterwards, Horsman kept encountering crows and took it as a sign from Sarge up above to carry-on and she eventually did by creating Dog & Crow. 

The line that began with sentimental values  has upheld it's charitable roots. A portion of the retailer's proceeds goes toward  the BCSPCA--a charity that is close to Horsman's heart and her animals.

She states, "It's the cause nearest and dearest to my heart and it provided me with my last two dogs. I felt it important my company maintain that heart in it's brand. "


Although, Horman has a high pedigree for style and charity, but she simply wants best products for any canine out there. Went asked what is the one necessity for any pet owner Horsman replies,

"I think a great leash! One that will stand the test of time and just have a timeless quality feel."

With Dog & Crow's style savvy products, their furry online models, and the brand's creative product descriptions support Horman's initial intentions of creating a well made line of pet products. Her advice to others who have a similar passion is,

" Take your time and make sure you love what your brand is. There are so many challenges as an entrepreneur, that if you don't have that passion behind it, it would be very easy to lose drive."

Certainly, this idea turned website, turned brand is something to crow and bark about.
