Check out Barker Kitsen, a new website that helps dog owners find the best locally sourced and socially responsible pet products.
- Founder Candace Dannenbaum started researching pet products in 2010 after her dog Toby had a health scare. By using items from under the radar brands– brands not available at her big chain pet stores — she was able to nurse Toby back to life. Candace has since made it her mission to get amazing yet unknown pet products into consumers’ hands.
- Barker Kitsen is organized by city and showcases top boutique brands made in the US and Canada. For instance, brands from San Francisco are here and New York are here.
- Lastly, Barker Kitsen has original content to help dog owners discover pet-friendly ways to experience their city.
