Top Dog - Apparel
Proprietors: Emily Lariviere & Amy Giehll
Philosophy/Mission: To create environmentally-friendly, high-quality, unique dog jackets to further improve the human and dog bond while employing ethical business practices, supporting other small businesses, and giving back to dogs and the people/organizations similarly passionate and committed to helping our canine friends.
Claim to Fame or Signature Product or Service: One-of-a-kind Dog jackets made from repurposed human textiles (clothing, jackets, blankets, sleeping bags, etc.) We want to keep your pups warm and dry while reusing existing materials in a way that hopefully exudes your dog’s unique personality!
We donate jackets to different fundraisers and organizations throughout
the year, including DoveAdore, Family Dogs New Life, Fences For Fido, West
Columbia Gorge Humane Society, Born Again Pit Bull Rescue and Lovers Not
Fighters. We attend a fair amount of
events as well. We still have yet to
work on a FFF build, but it’s on our 2013 list!
