Brands We Love
We have never felt cooler than to be at the Benji Netflix movie premiere. We were Sushi's guest of honor (with our best bro, Arne). There was a green carpet with full step + repeat, a dog house to pose with and a make-your-own dog tag station. Oh and LOTS OF FOOD & DRANKZZ. The movie was quite good too - we laughed, cried and really enjoyed it. Highlight of the night was definitely meeting Norbert and The Dogist! #netflixandwoof
Special shout out to:
Dog Mom & Pup Grooming
Healthy Spot is solely responsible for making Watson look as fabulous and fluffy as ever! We really love all of the groomers at the Marina Del Rey location, but for a bichon highly recommend Michael, Jordan or Eric.
We swear by Olive & June for all things nails. This place is pure heaven for both of us. They pamper Watson like crazy while humom gets her Chrissy Half Moon Mani (or nail art). You must try the teas when you're there too!
Olive & June
Outfits & Accessories
Our famous "Watson" bandana is from Ripley + Rue and we seriously couldn't love their bandanas more. They've got the cutest colors and patterns to choose from!
Ripley + Rue
You'll see Watson in Bark bandanas a lot, because we LOVE them!! So many adorable pattern options, our favorite is clearly the palm leaf bandana though. The infamous millennial pink dog mom mug is also from here!
It's always fun when a brand you already love reaches out to pawtner! We found Wildebeest on a trip to SF (before Watson & Walls was even a thing!) in a coffee shop that had a little store inside. We instantly fell in love because they offer bandanas that are ALSO collars - so a spot for your tags, and a quick-release clasp! Since that first bandana collar combo, we've purchased 2 more as additional colors have come out, and another new one is on the way.
Pssst: if you're shopping at Wildebeest, use the code WATSON 15 for 15% off your order!!
Fashionable Friendship Collar
As you can tell from our feed, we looooove to twin. Twinning is winning you know.
That's why we looooove Fashionable Friendship Collar! Gorgeous collars for your dog, and then you get a matching bracelet for yourself.
No better way to be matchy matchy.
Bad Tags has the FUNNIEST dog tags, hands down!! We owns "the snuggle is real" and "chicks dig my fluff" with name and human phone number on the back.
Dynotag is a really cool way to store all of your pet's info and make it easily accessible if they ever get lost. There's a QR code on the back that a person can scan to get all of your info - including vet number and any relevant medical info! - and return the dog to you safely. They also come in really cute emoji options, so stylish & functional!
Pipolli Pet Supply
Seersucker bowties!! Need I say more?
Pssst: if you're shopping at Knox Dogwear, use the code WATSON 20 for 20% off your order!!
If you want really chic dog accessories, we high recommend Finn + Me! Their owner draws the cutest doodles of dogs too. We haven't purchased anything ourselves yet, but have a long wish list!
Finn + Me Collection
Rororiri is one of our favorite stores for elegant & preppy dog attire! Rosie the mascot looks so much like Watson and every outfit on her is just so adorable. They specialize in cardigans and fringe bandanas. There's a brick + mortar store in SF but we haven't been yet.
Two of our favorite things are shoes and yappy hours, and GREATS decided to combine those for us a few weeks ago! They've got a brand new store on Abbot Kinney full of gorgeous shoes and to christen it they invited me and the whole dog squad to come hang out. Even better yet, they pawtnered with BarkShop to provide goodie bags for all of us. We will definitely be back here again!
Haus of Hound
Last but not least, our first brand we ever collaborated with, Haus of Hound! That rainbow leash really made us instafamous. They're about to restart the brand again which we're so excited about!
Watson is a suuuuper picky eater - totally a not food-oriented dog (unless it's a bully stick). Enter MEAT MATES! Delicious freeze dried meat that's meant to be placed on top of dog food. And all natural grain-free ingredients, so good for us. No more begging Watson to eat before work, he happily enjoys his food now!
Pssst: if you're shopping at Meat Mates, use the code REALMEAT for 50% off your order!!
Humom was first introduced to Away at a Create & Cultivate pop-up (highly recommend those too, if you're a human), and has never looked back. We rely on this bag for every trip, it's really perfect! Trips that humom used to check bags she can now carry on, which is literally a miracle. We've convinced several other people to buy them now at this point and nobody has regretted it (including skeptical Uncle Kevin!).
If you live in LA, you must train your dog at the Zoom Room! We personally go to the one in Culver City, but surely they're all good. Zoom Room has done a tremendous job getting Watson to be better in high stress situations (i.e. dogs fighting across the street) and in general way less aggressive toward dogs on our walks. Extra bonus: their group classes are drop in so you don't have to commit to an X week time span, you just drop into one of the classes of your level that week! Thank you Bart for the suggestion to go here.
