To kick off Fashion Week and Back to School, we're highlighting one of the most fashionable dog brands on the market, Cloud7. Based in Berlin, they offer stylish, contemporary products and accessories for dogs and dog lovers.
Cloud7 Dog Carrier
Founder Petra Jungebluth enjoyed a successful career in fashion design and marketing for iconic brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Liz Clairborne, before stepping out on her own. Petra started Cloud7 to develop all those products that she as a pet owner had always wanted and couldn't find, i.e. unique products with playful designs, made only from premium, eco-friendly quality.
We were excited to chat with Petra about her company and designs:
Let's start out with the most interesting question - tell us about your dogs!
Freddy and Johan
This is Johan, our 13 year old Black Lab. He's very much the muse and inspiration behind Cloud 7. No product is released without Johan's testing and approval. Johan now has a little brother, Freddy, a 4 month old Silken Windsprite. Johan can be quite selfish and protective over his belongings (especially his food bowls and his toys), but much to our relief the Johan and Freddy are just getting along great and have become buddies.
What's the Cloud7 design concept?
The Dog Sleeping Bag
The initial idea behind Cloud 7 was to design products that simply look good and straight forward. No tacky details or ornamental pattern prints. For example, dog beds are a pretty big piece of furniture in people's homes and I thought they should just match nicely to the rest of a sophisticated environment. We wanted to only use chic and high quality, durable, organic fabrics/materials. The dog beds also needed to be designed to meet the needs dog's needs and physics. It has that German design heritage - simple and functional shapes with the best possible quality inside.
The Sleepy Dog Bed
What are your most popular products?
It's quite funny, but our first design, the dog bed "Sleepy" is still our best seller. Second most popular is the "Travel Bed".
We love that Cloud7 has duvet covers for dog beds. Do they work for all beds?
Actually we have replacement covers for all the dog beds we make. They're great for a nice change of color or to use when one has to go into the washing machine.
The Dog Travel Bed
Are your products eco friendly?
Yes - where ever possible, we are working with the most eco-friendly and organic materials coming from organic farming. In some rare cases, we need to do a little compromise to be able to offer affordable prices. Being able to offer purely organic materials in all consequences has its price.
Where are your products produced?
We know the handshake of everyone involved. That's very important for us. We are working with small family owned businesses within reach, great people who know their handicraft. None of the people we work with is more than 100 miles away from our office.
Any new product launches?
Coming very soon. We're about to release a fully new design of a dog bed, made from felt, coming as a set of dog bed, storage box for toys and a placement for bowls all in one design. We have also begun to work on a new collection of coats, very minimal and "Comme des Garcons" style.
Where can our Dogsized fans purchase your products?
We're still very new on the American market. We have a few great retailers stock our brand: Mark & Graham in New York and Garde in Hollywood. They are also available for purchase at Cloud7.

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
