About

Sophisticated Pup - Chicago-made premium pet products and pet-themed home decor

ABOUT SOPHISTICATED PUP

Sophisticated Pup is a Chicago-based designer of premium pet apparel, collars, leashes, accessories and pet-themed home decor. We have been producing original designs since 2006. We specialize in premium, handmade collections that are produced in limited quantities.

All of our designs are 100% original creations by designer Michelle O'Hollaren. Everything is produced either in our design studio in Chicago or locally by other Chicago, IL artisans. Due to the handcrafted artistry and attention to detail that goes into every piece of clothing, or accessory, only limited amounts are created.

Sophisticated Pup products are sold through select retailers across the US and internationally. They can also be found here on our website: www.sophisticatedpup.com. You can find Sophisticated Pup at national pet industry trade shows, gift shows, as well many festivals and events throughout the Chicagoland and midwestern region. We have worked hard to build our brand over the years and we are continuously growing.


WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

Sophisticated Pup was born out of a love for a little pug, Penny. Penny, Michelle O'Hollaren's American Lo-Sze Pug suffers from Canine Liver Disease. Penny has proven to be a inspiration and never-ending muse for Sophisticated Pup. Penny's well-being is at the heart of Sophisticated Pup.


Michelle Cleek O'Hollaren, Owner/Designer

Michelle attended Indiana University for her bachelor's degree in Visual Arts Education and The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Columbia College Chicago for her master's degree in Visual Arts Management. She is constantly learning, reading and educating herself on new design practices and ideas.


Penny, Lead Model, Product Tester

Penny is an American Lo-Sze Pug. Penny came into Michelle’s world August 3, 2005 and it has never been the same since! All products get Penny's pawprint of approval, you can tell this because they are a part of each and every product. Penny is a survivor of Canine Liver Disease, which makes her even more exceptional that one could imagine!
