Fierce Fashion for the Vegan Dog Lover!

Fierce Fashion for the Vegan Dog Lover, by Rebecca Sanchez, The Pet Lifestyle Guru at MattieDog

Fierce Fashion for the Vegan Dog Lover, by Rebecca Sanchez, The Pet Lifestyle Guru at MattieDogMy husband and I went vegan about three years ago. It was the next natural step in our journey to exploring our human-animal bond relationships. For us, animals are sentient beings, and as such, we try to live a truly cruelty-free life. Luckily we live in Seattle, where living a vegan lifestyle is easy. We often pack up our little camper and travel up-and-down the West coast, from Vancouver, Canada to San Diego, CA with no concerns of finding vegan restaurants. Food is a bit easier than fashion when you are a vegan. And, I admit it…my heart goes thumpity-thump when I see a lovely pair of hand-made Italian shoes. Leather, for me, is hard to part with as a vegan, mostly due to very few, if any, fashionable alternatives. So, I make myself feel better by clinging on to my last bit of leather shoes and handbags, while not introducing any new leather items into my life. One thing I noticed, quality, sturdy dog collars are hard to find, some of the best ones are made of leather…so what is a vegan to do? We have an ‘in’ for you! We discovered some fierce fashion for the vegan dog lover – namely with the new FriendshipCollar line!

Fierce Fashion for the Vegan Dog Lover, by Rebecca Sanchez, The Pet Lifestyle Guru at MattieDogWe absolutely adore the FriendshipCollar vegan line – and to be honest with you, my husband and I have given solid thought to starting our own line of vegan dog collar and leash items, but with FriendshipCollar, we feel that this has become a moot point! Isn’t that the way it always happen….you have a brilliant idea only to find out, it’s already been done – and waaaay better than you ever thought you could do it! Hello, FriendshipCollar – you have become our go-to pet collar company! Apparently we aren’t alone, as FriendshipCollar walked away with the 2015 Business Industry Recognition Award for dog collars. Hey kitty, don’t pout…FriendshipCollar makes cat collars too!

Vegan Dinner Party and FriendshipCollar Give Away

My husband and I love to host dinner parties. Most of the time we substitute nearly every single food item with a vegan replacement. Honestly, no one every notices. Could be the wine, or it could be the killer food that  human and animal palettes love – our vegan recipes are mostly an homage to Post Punk Kitchen. But anyway, the other night, we were hosting a dinner party and one of our friends noticed our pup’s FriendshipCollar that comes with a matching bracelet that I proudly sported. “Hey, that is so very cool – where’d you get that….I want one” our friend asked. This simple statement opened up a whole new dialogue at our dinner party about veganism and dog collars. So, we decided to partner with FriendshipCollar for a gift-set giveaway featuring a sweet vegan dog collar and matching bracelet!

  1. I always think marketing wine as “vegan” is a gimmick since I think nearly all wine to be vegan. What am I missing? I realize specifically mead is problematic for vegans who reject honey although not all do.

    • There is such a thing as vegan wine – it’s free of all of the animal-derived fining agents (bone marrow, casein, chitin, egg albumen , fish oil, gelatin, and isinglass). We have to look on the label to make sure. Thanks for stopping by!

  19. Dogs are amazing! Such short little lives our Dogs have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day. It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them. I love the blog & I would choose the Top Dog design.
