“The company’s success lies in its ability to deliver messaging that resonates with dog lovers.”
Do you remember what it felt like when you became a dog owner for the first time? Do you remember how the world seemed to slow down the moment you laid eyes on your new furry companion? Do you remember the first kisses, the first whimpers, the first night with your new best friend?
If you’re a true blue dog lover like me, you’ve delicately stored this memory away in a place that time cannot erase. I’ve owned two dogs over the course of my life, and from those experiences, I can definitely say there are two kinds of dog people:
- Those who simply have a dog just to have a dog.
- Those who count the dog as a family member (and may even replace living family members with said dog).
I am in the latter camp of these two groups, and as luck would have it, so are most of my dog-owning friends. We love our creatures so much that when we find other people with the same admiration, it instantly connects us.
Dog is Good is a company that can take that connection to a whole new level. The company creates and markets gifts and apparel for dog lovers. The quote at the top of the page is taken directly from their website, and their products reflect how much they understand dog lovers. Their aim is to remind you of “Dogvergnügen (the joy you feel in the presence of Dog),” and I think you’ll see that they deliver on that promise.
“We don’t sell products, we sell a feeling.”
The feeling you get when you’re wearing a Dog is Good product takes you back to when you met your pup for the first time. You remember why you became a dog owner in the first place. The company sent me their popular Dog: Codependent hoodie to try on for size. The timing was kismet because I had already made plans to attend our local baseball team’s “Bark in the Park” night. This event allows you to bring your four-legged friend to an Erie Seawolves game and snag some great pet swag from local vendors. I wore my new hoodie to the game, so needless to say, I have some great pictures to share from the event:
If you don’t know me very well, you need to know that I am sort of a hoodie connoisseur. I have too many in my closet, and I definitely have come to a point in my life where I don’t spend money on sweatshirts that won’t keep me warm. I’m almost always cold, and I often have to triple and quadruple layer when I go out. I’m used to being Randy from A Christmas Story.
That being said, I cannot say enough great things about the Dog is Good hoodie. Right off the bat, I loved the charcoal grey color and white hoodie laces. The interior lining is the softest, most durable fleece, and the fit is wonderful: ample space in the upper torso, but streamlined for my waist.
The quote emblazoned on the front of the zip up hoodie is basically every dog lover’s mantra:
Where I go, Dog follows.
Where I stop, Dog settles.
When I am lost, Dog finds me.
When I am joyful, Dog joins me.
Who I am, Dog knows.
What I need, Dog becomes.
Dog is Great. Dog is Good. Dog is Everything.
Across the back of the sweatshirt are the words “Dog. Codependent.” The left arm features a patch which reads “Enabling Dog Addicts Worldwide.”
The best part? You don’t just get 2 front pockets: you get four. There’s a smaller pocket inside of the regular hoodie pocket, perfect for credit cards, small key rings, or, of course, dog treats. And, there’s a small space to slip your headphones through in case you want to streamline your audio cords.
The other best part? This hoodie is warm. I mean, really, really warm. Like quadruple-layer-turtleneck-sweater-t-shirt-and-camisole warm. I wore it two nights in a row, and I was so warm I had to take it off. That NEVER happens to me. I’m always the coldest person in my group, requesting everyone else’s coats for warmth. Not true with this hoodie.
And the funniest part? I have received more comments about this hoodie during the past three days than I have over any other hoodie I own. People love looking at the patch, the quote, the back, and some have even tried to feel the material!
So, it’s clear I’m a big fan of Dog is Good’s apparel. But what else do they sell? Take a look at our gallery below!
As you can see, they also feature apparel, home decor, tote bags, jewelry, and much, much more. They have products for cats and horses, too. It’s an animal lover’s paradise.
