It is no secret that I’m head over heels in love with my dog. We raised Navy from a tiny eight-week-old puppy to the brave merwolf she is today, and I couldn’t be prouder of her.
Living in Hawai‘i as we do, we did everything we (safely) could when she was a puppy to teach her to love the ocean. Now, at a year old, she jumps over that first break and heads for the horizon like a merle-coated Jack Sparrow, and we’ve just started getting her up on our boards.
The only problem with a dog who loves the ocean as much as she does is that every time she goes in, her harness and collar do too, meaning that every trip to the beach ends in her gear soaking in a bucket of bubbles or mildewing horribly. I went online to find waterproof harnesses and found a designer so gorgeous that I had to share them here with you.
The HOUND Collection, based in Toronto, designs beautiful leashes, harnesses, collars, and accessories for your pup —and a few accessories for you, too! I’m currently coveting two sets: one in cork, that I’d love to give to Navy to wear at our wedding (😂🐺👰🏻), and the other, a waterproof set in forest green to put an end to her mildewy target leash once and for all. The pineapple charm and bandana I couldn’t resist.
Take a look!
