Raise the Cocktail Flag for our Newport After 5 Preppy Bow Ties Dog Collar.

The snow is falling, but here at the Providence Boat Show we’re dreaming of summer on the water and After 5 Cocktails. We thought it timely to introduce our Newport After 5 Preppy Bow Ties Dog Collar here while everyone is in a lighthearted, spirited mood at the show.

We’ve meticulously designed our whimsical bow ties in delightfully vibrant colors and patterns, and we’ve added Spot’s nautical twist for a truly original design. So, raise that cocktail flag and let the fun begin!

Gone Fishin’ ….Get Hooked On Spot’s Latest Dog Collar Collection!

We’re sure hooked, and we know boating and fishing enthusiasts will love our newest collection of spirited and whimsical Gone Fishin’ dog collars. Heck, even landlubbers can’t resist! Spot’s own original designs, our Deep Sea Fishing and Trout Fly Fishing dog collars are lined with nautical navy blue ticking for the preppiest of canines. No other way to say it…we just can’t get enough of the delightful designs and luscious colors – our Deep Sea Fishing Collar in Atlantic Blue and Soft Coral, and our Trout Fly Fishing Collar in River Rock and Lakeside Mist.



By no coincidence, the timing of the release of our Gone Fishin’ Collection is “Spot-on.” During February, we’ll be debuting our incredibly adorable and preppy collars and leads to the avid powerboaters and sailboaters at the Providence Boat Show and the New England Boat Show. Watch our blog for more info as the events draw closer.

Our Gone Fishin’ collars and leads are proudly made in New England. Machine wash in a laundry bag on “gentle” cycle, and dry flat.

Snuggly PJ’s for Winter Nights…in Florida or New England!

We’ve finally had our first wintry blast of cold weather here in New England. Just as we’re pulling out our winter woolies, Torey is trading in her Cotton Knit Zoo Pal PJ’s for her Flannel Wintry Penguins. Fleece, flannel or cotton knit, all Spot’s pajamas are super soft, comfortable, and cuter than you can ever imagine. Great features, like turtlenecks that can be folded down, roll-up/down sleeves for shorter and longer-legged fur-babies, and D-rings for leash and tag attachment, all make these pajamas uber-practical, too.


Summer or winter, pajamas are an important part of Torey’s nighttime routine. Whether she dons her Lightweight Knit Tropical Monkeys or her Preppy Fleece Argyle, Torey knows it’s time to settle down and snuggle up. And no worries about early morning trips outside…you see what we mean!
