Raw Dog meets Green Dog!



Raw Dog is on the ground in Portland! We’re absolutely more than thrilled to announce that as of January 2009, Green Dog Pet Supply in Beaumont Village, Portland is the newest retailer of Raw Dog Gear. Green Dog is currently stocked with a selection of black and brown leads, ¾” and 1” collars.

If you happen to be in the area, I highly recommend you visit (and support!) this fine little shop. Focusing on eco-friendly and durable product lines, they’ve got a fantastic selection of toys, treats, and gear all hand-selected for quality, and for being environmentally low-impact; though leather may not necessarily fit the traditional “green” model, durability is one component of eco-friendliness. A good leather lead well cared-for should last at least a couple human generations. Additionally, many of their product lines are locally or domestically hand-produced. One thing among many to love about this shop is their great selection of ultra-premium foods, including support for RAW feeders (hooray!).

Just poking around this shop was a blast... for one thing, the entire interior including fixtures and displays was built from recycled and reclaimed materials from demolished buildings. The displays are so clever and attractive it makes me want to go scour Bring Recycling and start building stuff!

Something else to love: Green Dog employee Julie started and maintains the Portlanders Against Breed Bans web group at meetup.com, an online resource for local residents to monitor, disseminate information on, and help combat breed-specific legislative movements in Portland and surrounding areas of Multnomah County. We remain fairly diplomatic regarding most topics political but there’s just no better way to say it;
BSL Sucks (being a totally inefficient, more or less completely useless way to reduce the incidence of dog-related injuries and fatalities).

Green Dog Rocks, we’re honored to be a part of their business.

Thanks so much for saying such nice things about us! We are so happy to carry Raw Dog Leather, as we've held off of carrying leather at all until we could find some that was locally made. We were absolutely thrilled when we found Raw Dog, as it's not only local, they're some of the most beautiful leather work we've ever seen for dogs. The lining on the collars and leash handles is incredibly soft, and the leather is beautiful and pliable right from the start. Not only that, it's very reasonably priced.
Thanks Raw Dog!!
