Chuckle Hounds for a "Pup-u-lar" dog!

We started sewing for the Super Bowl. We couldn't find a cute collar for our dog. So we made one. For him, and for every dog on the block.

They got to be so popular, that we just keep making them, and then we started helping out our favorite dog charities, then voila! Chuckle Hounds was born.

I love what we do. It's a fun project that gives me time to spend with our animals, and explore the great cities that we live in. It's a great conversation piece. At parties the "I make bow ties for dogs" answer to the boring "what do you do" question always gets people talking. It's fun. And I love it.

We hope you'll visit us often as we are always adding new styles and patterns. And we love feedback, pictures and suggestions. Let us know what YOU want to see!

If there's something you don't see… ask. We have a million projects going on that don't make it to the site quickly. Chances are if you want a harness, or matching item… we have it!

    I love dogs. I'm NUTs about dogs. I love helping dogs, playing with dogs, walking dogs, and just being around dogs. Designing fun products for dogs keeps me at the head of the pack and smilin' all day long.

    Melissa has that special eye for photography. She makes our products look good on our good lookin' (but often mobile and uncooperative!) models. It helps that she has a couple of fluffy tails at home to practice on.
