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!

“Catch” us this Weekend at the Providence Boat Show.


We’re excited to return to the 23rd Annual Providence Boat Show this Thursday through Sunday. Come and explore the world of boating at one of the largest indoor boat shows in New England. This four-day expo will showcase boats for every pocketbook – from powerboats to sailing dinghies and paddle-powered watercraft.

Visit us in Booth #12 and see all Spot’s original design nautical, preppy dog collars. We’ll be debuting our preppy, whimsical Gone Fishin’ Collection, and we guarantee, once you see our Deep Sea Fishing Dog Collars and our Trout Fly Fishing Dog Collars, you’ll surely be hooked!

We’ll also be hosting raffles and giveaways for fabulous prizes like Spot original design dog collars and dog life jackets throughout the event. Follow us on instagram for details, and stop by Booth #12 for more daily raffles and giveaways.

The show also includes free seminars to give you the know-how on boat handling, navigation, and even how to get involved in the sport; an indoor pool for boat demos; a special appearance by the coauthor of The Finest Hours, the book on which the recent Disney film is based; sea-to-table demonstrations with local chefs, and so much more!

And don’t sweat coming on Superbowl Sunday. The show ends at 3:00 pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to settle in before the game!

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!

Introducing Spot’s Starboard Port Preppy Oxford Stripe Dog Collar and BowTie

We drew inspiration for our Starboard Port Preppy Oxford Stripe Dog Collars and BowTies from the Port and Starboard red and green lights of the nautical world.

Another Spot Original Design, our preppy red and green oxford stripe makes for a fun holiday collar.  Pair it with our Starboard Port Bows and BowTies for an extra festive and stylish look!








For all the special “Nauti-Dogs” at Christmas-time…

Camo, Moose, Fish or Pheasant…What’s your Dog’s Fall Style?

We’re pulling out our warm, woolen sweaters, so it’s time to give our dogs a new fall look, too! Take a peek at these great fall picks from our Sporting Collection. The colors are so vibrant and the designs are just so danged fun. Better still, they’re made in the USA.

Our classic Arcadia Camo Dog Collar shouts, “Take me for a hike. NO. Wait! Shopping on Newbury Street would be just fine, too.” And fishing, hmmmm. I don’t know about you, but I can’t pass a quiet lake without longingly wishing that I could stop right there and cast my pole…remembering fondly the day I hooked my first Largemouth Bass. I’ve never been fly fishing, but if it’s as fun as this Fly Fishing Dog Collar is cute, count me in!


For a ruggedly-handsome look, get your sport the Pheasant Hunting Dog Collar in rich green and brown hues. It’s not just for the hunting companion, though the beagles and the hounds are truly stunning in this one. Last, with fall nearing its end and winter approaching, who can resist this Moose Dog Collar. It’s reminiscent of fall and winters in New England…moose, leaves, evergreens…We love it!

So keep your sport by your side. Look good. Get noticed.

Every dog should look this good.

They’re sized to fit pups from 2 pounds to 120 pounds, and we offer over a dozen great looks to suit your dog’s lifestyle.

For Henry’s classic town and country look, see the English Plaid Wool Sweater.


Marla, from Lone Tree, CO, reviewed our Winter Flurries Sweater telling us, “It’s a thick, wool sweater and it looks adorable on my Shih Tzu! He weighs 14 pounds and the small fits him perfectly. Would highly recommend!”

So, don’t let your pup be left out in the cold!
