Being sued is always a daunting wake up call. Being sued by someone you once trusted can feel like an ambush. Having just been served with one lawsuit by an animal rescue organization siting alleged physical abuse, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Lisa Vanderpump, along with her husband Ken Todd, is faced with a second lawsuit alleging fraud and breach of contract by Fifi & Romeo, a luxury pet outfitter.

The suit claims they were asked to create custom apparel for Giggy, Lisa’s Pomeranian, to wear and display at the American Humane Association’s 2012 fashion show. Fifi & Romeo expected to receive brand promotion and recognition via traditional media, social media, and print outlets in exchange for the custom outfit. Additionally, the luxury pet brand alleges that in 2015, Lisa executed a partnership agreement that involved her personally designing exclusive pet clothing with Fifi & Romeo as the manufacturer and seller of the designs under the label, ‘Fifi Romeo for Vanderpump Pets’.

According to court documents, the two parties entered into an oral agreement which was honored from May 2013 through October 2015. The company now contends the reality TV couple went back on their agreement once a written contract was signed. Their main points of contention are that Vanderpump and Todd:

  • failed to properly credit them in photos, television appearances, and other media channels
  • Intentionally misspelled the brand’s name, preventing them from receiving due recognition
  • did not share manufacturing expenses per their oral agreement

Finally, Fifi & Romeo discovered that Vanderpump and Todd have created a pet clothing line of their own, a move they believe indicates the couple had no intention of honoring their mutual agreement, but instead used their brand recognition and customer base to build a luxury pet apparel line and brand of their own.

Lisa is reportedly hurt and confused over the filing of this lawsuit and claims that she lived up to their agreement and was enjoying a healthy, mutually beneficial relationship. She also states that she has promoted the brand on her reality show, and via social media. Want to stay in the know on upcoming developments in the court process?

Fashion or Function – Do Dogs Need Cold Weather Gear?

Fashion or Function – Do Dogs Need Cold Weather Gear?

From sweaters to coats to vests, outerwear for dogs comes in a wide variety of options. We all know how cute dog sweaters and coats are, but are the necessary for the pet – or only for the owner? Think of it this way – just like the chilly temperatures of winter take their toll on humans, the pets we love feel the chill as well. Unless your dog is a double-coated one – like a Siberian Husky or Australian Shepherd – he’s likely to appreciate an extra layer of protection a coat or sweater has to offer, just as much as you are.

Pet outwear is particularly suitable for puppies, senior dogs, and short-haired breeds, but almost any dog can benefit from it’s added warmth. Your dog enjoys the warmth of your home and experiences the same drop in body temp when they venture outside that you do. That change in temps can make your pet hesitant to romp, play, or relieve himself outside. His natural coat may not provide all the cold weather protection he needs.

The key to finding the right sweater for your dog is knowing what to look for. Rather than choosing a bulky sweater, you’ll want to look for one that offers lightweight, comfortable, reliable warmth. Additionally, you want a sweater or coat that’s easy to put on your pet and just as easy to take off, because it won’t matter how fashionable or functional the sweater is if your dog fights you every time he needs to wear it. Finally, you want one that offers superior quality at an affordable price.

DOGO Pet’s collection of outerwear for your dog fits the bill. Our coats and sweaters also come with a leash attachment, step-in leg design, and full belly coverage that provides all around protection from rain and snow. With the right outerwear, your dog can be stylish, trendy, and fashionable while they’re also warm, safe, and protected from harsh weather.

Sizing Up Your Dog

Sizing Up Your Dog

Dog lovers come in all shapes and sizes – and so do the dogs they love. Some pet owners love dogs they can carry around, like Chihuahuas and Tea Cup Terriers.

When you’re striving to get the most bang for your buck, you want to make purchases your pet won’t outgrow too quickly. Take a look at the following guide.

Does Your Dog Share Your Love of Art?

Does Your Dog Share Your Love of Art?

Humans have a variety of tastes when it comes to the art that graces the walls of their homes and favorite museums. Some people love abstracts, some love oil paintings, some love modern art, and some love art deco. But, do the dogs you love have an understanding and appreciation of art and other beautiful things? Many people erroneously assume that because dogs see the world differently than we do, they can’t recognize or appreciate works of art.

While it’s true that dogs see the world in two dimensions and we see it in three, that doesn’t automatically exclude them from finding beauty in a variety of art forms. Similarly, while dogs do not possess the full color spectrum like people do, they do see, recognize, and understand colors like, yellows, blues, and a wide range of shades of gray. Additionally, dogs have much better peripheral vision than we do. How does all that affect the way they see art?

Dogs have been shown to react positively to photos and images of their owners. That, alone, indicates their ability to cognitively process images and react to them, so keep an open mind when it comes to exposing your favorite pooch to the world of art. Think of it this way – you probably enjoy watching your favorite television show on a wide screen, high-definition, full color TV screen. Your dog sees the exact same show on a curved screen (because of his enhanced peripheral vision) and with slightly fewer colors. Even though he might not see all the colors accurately, he still sees all the images and action.

Just like people appreciate different artworks and art forms, your dog appreciates beauty and art in slightly different ways than you. Dogs are intelligent animals. They have the ability to learn their name, respond to commands, and look totally innocent after tearing up your favorite shoes or sneaking food off your countertops. They can, in fact, see art and images, and appreciate them from their own point of view.

Tips For Trick or Treating With Pets

Tips For Trick or Treating With Pets

If you think trick or treating with your kids is fun, wait till you trick or treat with your dog. It’s a unique, fun experience you and your pet will enjoy. Start out by getting your dog in the spirit of Halloween with his own adorable dog costume or hat. Choose from a variety of costumes and hats in all sizes like our Panda Hat or Bat Hat. Both hats are stylish, comfortable, and sure to get admiring looks along your trick or treat route.

Want a costume versus a hat? Our Dragon Sweater features scales all the way down the back and eyes on the hoodie and is so cute, you won’t be able to stop admiring your pet. Our reversible Lady Bug/Bumblebee costume does double duty by providing two costume options in one affordable dog garment. You can check out our entire Halloween collection right here.

As much fun as it is to take your pet along, it’s also important to keep your dog and all the other trick or treaters safe. These tips will help you do exactly that:

  • If you’ll be out for a long time, bring along a few doggie treats and water. Dogs – especially puppies – have short attention spans, so be prepared to take him home if he gets bored, overtired, or overanxious.

  • Don’t let your dog eat chocolate or sugar-laden treats. Instead, bring a few of their normal treats along and remind your kids not to let the dog eat their candy.

  • The rush of children in festival costumes might be too much stimulation for your pet. Keep your dog on a short leash because he may be wary of, or frightened by, unfamiliar children and well-meaning adults who might want to pet him.

  • Not all kids have a pet in their home and your dog may unintentionally scare them. A short leash will solve the problem and you may want to hang back from house doors until they’re almost clear.

Our costumes will help your dog look great, and these tips will keep your dog safe and make sure the whole family has a great Halloween.
