Hip Hybrids

May 19, 2009 06:00 AM ET

You took the plunge and bought that designer dog, and now the question is—what is he or she going to wear for your stroll into town?

Trendy dog owners know pet accessories can make a fashion statement, and a collar or bandana that proudly proclaims the pooch is a product of deliberately mixed genes is a must!

No worries.

A visit to will yield all that you need to walk proudly among the ranks of cockapoo, puggle and labradoodle owners. Your best friend will be tagged correctly—no more guessing games from doting sidewalk sleuths (“Is he a poodle—what happened to the clip?”)

The website is the brainchild of Chatham’s Juliette Bresnahan, and her husband, former New York City high end fashion merchandisers, and owners of a handsome Labradoodle named Buster.

The Bresnahans soon discovered it was difficult to find “hip, high quality gear and accessories that let Buster (and us) show off our breed pride and fashion sense. Out of our fashion frustration, Happy Hybrid Hounds was born.”

From muddy paw towels, to doggie dishes, the site offers an assortment of stuff with breed moniker prominently displayed. There is also a line of Mutt Wear, for pooches whose ancestry is less certain.

No longer unbranded—your hybrid (or mutt)  will happily display his heritage. Not a small thing, when there are so many new canine combos strolling around town.

I'd been searching for a new collar for my chocolate Labradoodle for months now, wanting to replace the colorful one she's worn for six years since she was a puppy.
