3 Dirty Dawgz: Review, Interview and Giveaway!!! (CLOSED)


For most of you who are pet owners you love your animal as much as if it was your own child! Pets are part of the family and as a part of your family you want the very best for them! It is so much fun dressing dogs up in cute little sweaters and coats. However, it is not always possible for our dogs to wear their cute little outfits all the time, and when it comes to cats it is quite ridiculous to dress them up. So the answer to that dilemma is to broadcast not only your pet’s style but your style as well through collars!! Your pets always have to wear their collars so this is an awesome way to do this! Oliver has so many different collars, jewelled ones, holiday ones…his Christmas collar is soo cute! It has Christmas plaid pattern and bells!

3 Dirty Dawgz was created out of the frustration that Lori found in trying to find cute but durable collars for the three loves of her life (not including her husband of course!). Lori’s dogs sounds like such sweethearts! Logan is a big goofy chocolate Lab who is so friendly that his tag never stops wagging! He is quite laid back and he loves to run carefree. Kizmo is a beautiful golden lab who Lori swears should have been born a chicken because he is literally scared of his own shadow! Finally “Mini” Cooper a black lab, got his nickname because he’s the smallest out of the bunch, but what he lacks in size he makes up in attitude! And Lori and her family are proud to announce the new addition to their family Miss Shadow, a Border Collie Mix. Miss Shadow is such a sweetheart, but sadly she was in the shelter for nine long months before she was adopted by Lori’s family. Someone had sprayed chemicals so she has 0% tear production, so even if Lori regularly gives her drops about 4 times a day and no matter what we do her eyes are still awful, poor girl. That is why I love Lori’s story because she truly cares about dogs and is a champion of adoption, especially for dogs that most people wouldn’t want!

Does your love in your life prefer long naps in the sun, flashing their claws and indulging in catnip? Lori’s collars are not limited to the dog in your life but she also makes amazing cat collars too. And if you need a leash to try to tame your ball of energy, Lori supplies those as well so you can have a set of matching collar and leash, guaranteeing that you will be the envy of the neighbourhood and they will be meowing and barking your praises. 3 Dirty Dawgz also has an amazing selection of little extras such as t-shirts, food and water bowls, and engraved collar tags, making 3 Dirty Dawgz truly a one stop location for all your pet’s needs!!

I have to say that my favourite collar out of the 3 Dirty Dawgz Collection would have to be the Preppy Crown Ribbon collar in Royal Blue and Gold with a Black Metal Buckle! I know Oliver would love it too! Here is Lori’s interview so that we can get to know her better!

Name:
Lori Foxworth

Name of shop:
3 Dirty Dawgz

Location:
Long Island, New York

Favourite item from your shop:
The argyle skull designs and my camp theme collars

Tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am a huge lover of all animals. I support and donate to many animal causes and rescues. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree so my collar making is art based. For me each collar I create is like a piece of art

When and what made you want to open up your shop?
My love for animals, particularly my love for dogs.


Where do you draw inspiration for all your amazing designs?
When I design my own ribbons for the 3DD Exclusives section, I basically have so much fun. I like to create ribbons that are cute and non dog related at all. Basically bones, paws and fire hydrants are over rated!
If you could be an animal what would you be and why?
A well loved dog of course! They sleep, play and eat all day long, they havo no cares in the world, they love people unconditionaaly no matter what!

If you could have one super power what would it be and why?
Flying! I hate traffic so I'd love to be able to just bypass it all together

I rescue alot of dogs. Each one has to have a collar, a leash and a toy of their own. I get creative on ways to get donations. I hope my comment does not hurt my chances of winning a collar.

But this site is terrible when it comes to looking at the product. I LOVE the dogs and cats. But people go there to buy your product and you just can not see it properly nor is the information sufficient. Do the collars only fit the size dog they are displayed on?

I think my favorite are the Rounded Corner Plates in the Bailey Ware Collection. My dog - also a Labrador retriever - sleeps in the same position, curled up into a ball. ;-) It's like having a plate with his picture on it!

Nora said...

It's hard to say who is my favorite of the Wagging Tail models, but I love the pictures of Winston (http://www.3dirtydawgz.com/images/waggin%27%20tails/Winston_1.jpg) and Sydney (http://www.3dirtydawgz.com/images/waggin%27%20tails/Sydney.jpg). :)
