It was a pleasure to sit down with one of the founders, Christian Velasco, to learn more about this unique brand.
How did Dogs of Glamour get started?
In 2007, Chris Price and I (Christian Velasco) decided to start a hip pet boutique in Los Angeles, California named D.O.G (Dogs of Glamour) Pet Boutique. Our mission was to offer new trends and styles to pampering dog owners all around the world.
Soon it became one of the hottest places to shop for your dog. Celebrity clients like Paris Hilton, Anne Hathaway and Charlize Theron are D.O.G regulars. Even genuine princesses stopped by with their royal pups!
D.O.G was featured on countless TV segments like The Tonight Show, E! News and Good Morning America. With all this popularity, D.O.G still had one missing ingredient that many of our customers kept on asking for - our own collection of products.
In early 2013 D.O.G gave birth to a new line of designer pet products named Dogs of Glamour. The line premiered at SuperZoo with rave reviews! Having owned D.O.G. for over 7 years, we listened to clients and learned what was missing in the industry. Our line now features dog clothes, harnesses, carriers, beds, toys and rugs.
Launching Dogs of Glamour was a perfect fit to the retail business and so far has been a huge success. In the past year Dogs of Glamour has gained distribution in all of Europe and Russia, Japan and Korea.

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.
