The Weather’s Great at the New England Boat Show.


The Progressive Insurance New England Boat Show has grown into the Northeasts’ largest Boat Show. We’re  back at the Show thru this weekend, and this year the weather is on our side (flashback the blizzard of 2015).

Get excited for the upcoming season! You’ll see powerboats of all makes and models for cruising, fishing, wakeboarding and all the watersports! And if you like to ride with the wind, the New England Boat Show offers dozens of sailboats from skiffs and one design dinghy racers to Coastal Cruisers. All rigged and ready for your inspection!

Our Good Dog Spot’s right where you found us last year, Booth #1016. Thanks to all Spot’s friends who have already stopped by to say hi and to update their pup’s nautical, preppy look (you can see some of these stylish pups on our facebook and instagram). We’ll be giving away Spot’s original design collars daily, so stop by and enter to win, and watch our instagram for details.

The show also has more than 250 exhibits of the latest in marine accessories to stock up on everything from the newest navigational equipment, hardware and galleyware for your boat. Attend a few seminars and informational clinics, check out the interactive displays…the show is a great day for the whole family!


Join us at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center thru Sunday, February 21.

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!

Preppy Dog Collars & Leashes– Preppy Lifestyle, for Dogs

Our Good Dog Spot was created by a real passion for preppy style. We wanted to share that with dog owners and their best friends, so all of them can be about town in style. But what does the preppy lifestyle for dogs mean?

First, it means classy nautical themes. Our Seaside Collection of dog collars and leads, for example, embraces the nautical theme completely. The collars are decorated with nautical icons, like sea stars, sailboats, and anchors. And they come in wonderful color combinations with accented trim.

242-TIf you want a little something different from your nautically-themed dog collars, try our “Love My Dog” Nautical Signal Flag Collection. These collars come in subdued colors, which really let the signal flags pop.

319-TThe second part of the preppy dog lifestyle are those classic and timeless styles. Centered around the fashions of the classy-yet-active, our Derby Hill and Equestrian collections are a great way to present your dog with the class they truly embody. Classic patterns like plaid, tartan, and houndstooth are the hallmark of these collar collections.

AM_C_RED-2Not to be left out, or left behind the times, is the final piece of what preppy dog lifestyle means to us. Our Good Dog Spot features contemporary-inspired collections, for a little more whimsical look, without sacrificing class. Inspired by the fashions of Vineyard Vines and Lilly Pulitzer, our Newport Patchwork Collection embraces the playful side of the classy life. The previously mentioned Nautical Flag collection definitely fits into this category, too.


Whether you’re yachting, shopping, vacationing, or just out at the park, Our Good Dog Spot has the class for your pup. Don’t forget that, in addition to our wide variety of collars, we have a broad selection of leads that really complement the look.

And if you’re trying to slide into that “after five” look, don’t forget the bow tie. An especially good deal, since all bow ties are free shipping– but only while supplies last!

Dressing Up for the Races

The biggest events in horse racing are coming! Over the next five weeks, the races for the Triple Crown are taking place. Each of the three races holds with it the possibility of fame, glory, and triumph. The winners of the Triple Crown become legends in the horse racing community.

Things kick off this weekend with the Kentucky Derby. To get into the spirit, we want to show off our Derby Hill collection of preppy dog collars and leads.


Inspired by the equestrian lifestyle, the Derby Hill collection of leads, collars, and harnesses are beautifully crafted with a classic woven tartan pattern. They feature classy light brown, white, and black colors, with tastefully subtle red accents.

Our collection includes collars and harnesses. All of them have been designed for maximum comfort, so your dog can feel as good as he or she looks. We also have matching leads, to complete this classic preppy look.

Get into the Triple Crown excitement, and bring your dog along for the ride.

Every dog should look this good.
