The tale of Doggy Luxe started as an idea in the summer of 2012 in Newport Beach, CA with two childhood friends. Founder, Scott Mikolich, and Co-Founder, Christan Nguyen, saw a lack of options for fashion minded dog owners in the current pet product industry and wanted to produce a new line of couture dog collars that would turn heads. They formed Doggy Luxe to satisfy fashion friendly dog owners’ needs by keeping their four legged friends stylish and fabulous at all times.
Working together, they became the first and only company to blend fashion and pets with their Doggy Luxe ‘couture’ collars. They are setting trends in the pet industry and offer stylish couture looking designs with a fashionable flair, all made with genuine Italian leather imported from Milan. They also pride themselves on making the experience of buying a collar fun, hip, and fabulous. Currently, there are no other products or companies lvvike Doggy Luxe on the market in the pet industry, because they treat their products exactly like a high-end luxury company. The rapid growth and popularity of their collars are increasing every month amongst dog lovers.
Doggy Luxe released their first Fashion Line of 5 stylish designs in early 2013 with collars named Dolce, Azure, Sur, Rose, and Noir. The French and Italian inspired names in their first collection come in petite and small collar sizes because they compliment the trend of making small dogs fashion accessories. In this collection, there are 5 different colors ranging from Gold all the way to black, hand selected in Milan that represent modern fashion and couture. All of their collars are handcrafted pieces assembled one by one in the USA. Every collection from Doggy Luxe is also a one of a kind, limited edition. All of the hardware on every collar is plated in 18K gold to give an everlasting shine. And to top it off, every collar is set and draped in the finest Swarovski Crystals imported direct from Austria to make pooches glisten wherever they go.
All Doggy Luxe collars are available on their website at www.shopdoggyluxe.com. They also announced this summer that their couture collars will be exclusively available soon at select boutiques in Newport Beach, and also at all ‘Pussy and Pooch’ locations throughout the Los Angeles area.
Bringing over 10 years of experience in the pet and fashion industry, Doggy Luxe Designers were happy that founders Scott and Christan announced an alliance with the Best Friends Animal Society (www.bestfriends.org). The Best Friends Animal Society works extremely hard at rescuing and helping to adopt pets without homes. With every collar that is sold by Doggy Luxe, they donate $5 to their organization. Each year 4 million pets are put to sleep unnecessarily, and that alarming rate is the exact reason why Doggy Luxe feels they can help the Best friends Animal Society make America a ‘No Kill’ country. Aside from being trendsetters in canine couture, they are also saving the lives of pets with their efforts and contributions.
At the end of the day, Doggy Luxe has found that their customers love their products because their pooches are now turning heads everywhere they go while supporting a great cause at the same time.
