Welcome to Dublin Dog!

Tag Archives: No Stink



As part of growing our blog community, Dublin Dog Co will start to test and review products submitted from our fan base. Our goal is share great products, be those for humans or for our dogs that we may all benefit from. First on the list is one that I have personally been trying over the last 3-4 months, the Kuranda Dog Bed. As many of you know, I'm the proud owner of a 65lb female German Shepherd Dog, "Kona" as well as an 85lb lab mix named "Jake" (the profile for our logo). Both dogs have started to crest the proverbial "hill" into old age with Kona being 9 and Jake being 10. As with many GSD's, Kona experiences some hip and joint issues, yet she is still as spry and puppy-like when it comes to chasing sticks and running after bunnies. However her recovery can take longer after extended days of play and romping.

Jake on the other hand has what I like to refer to as a sprinkle problem. That's right, he's a leaker. It appears in his older age he has become incontinent. While we have him on an aggressive regimen of Proin 3x a day, the positive effects are starting to wane. The result is the frustrating and disconcerting reality that he leaks all over his bed, our oriental rugs, the hardwoods, and everywhere else he decides to rest. While we certainly don't blame him for his malady, there is no getting around the constant struggle to keep the house clean, Jake clean, and mopping up everywhere he goes. While "male wraps" have been employed, we hate to have that on him all the time. And his bed, oh dear heavens. It was becoming a sponge for odor and urine, as even his wrap would eventually bleed through.

Welome the Kuranda Bed. These beds offer both orthopedic comfort for the dog by keeping them elevated off the ground through a supportive woven fabric that is supported by an indestructible PVC pipe frame that comes in both Almond and Walnut, or aluminum  if you so desire. There other benefit of these beds are the fact that they breathe, in that they allow air to flow through the material based on which material you choose from their selection of 40 oz. Vinyl, Ballistic Nylon, Cordura, or a vinyl weave all in a variety of colors. We chose the vinyl weave as it allows for the most air flow and is extremely easy to clean with a hose. While it can't cure Jake's incontinence, it does allow for a more sanitary environment while also doing wonderful things for his joints. 

While they did not initially take to sleeping in the beds for long periods, they have grown to really enjoy them. There are also fleece covers that you can purchase for the beds (think pillow top) to make them even more comfortable. These are a great option for dog owners who would like an alternative to traditional mattress style beds, or who may have dogs with joint problems, allergies, or incontinence. We're big fans of these beds and this company as they do a lot for shelters and rescues as well. Kudos to Kuranda!


Dublin Dog Co was just featured in the July Edition of Outside Magazine. The feature is called "The Outside Guide to Dogs" and I highly recommend grabbing a copy if you enjoy doing fun activities outside with your dog. Learn such things as: 1) Adventure Training 101 2)There are no unteachable dogs  3) Choose your adventure: sport specific tips for worry free play and of course 4) Gear of the Dog featuring the best equipment for your companion's next adventure including the Original All Style, No Stink "Tahitian Sky" collar for your's truly! It's cool to be the only product on the actual dog. Lucky Bastards!


As many of you have noticed we are currently out of stock of 90% of the Original All Style, No Stink dog collars? "What's the deal with that?" you say. Well, unless your dog has drug you into the closet or buried you in the backyard you've probably heard a little something about Dublin Dog Co now producing our world renowned collars in the USA. That's right, starting the first full week of July, we'll begin selling our newest version of our versatile All Style, No Stink collars. However, while we've been in production with our new E3 formulation (see blog below), new tooling, and new hardware, we had to deplete our existing stock without manufacturing new inventory from our former factory, using our previous methods. Our success has been predicated on "going for it", taking chances where others were afraid to go. The result; a really good product that makes a lot of sense. However, through your feedback, comments, and wonderful stories, we've found ways to correct our mistakes, improve where we could, and make some advancements. The result is a brand new facelift to our tried and true product line. So thank you for your patience and we hope you love what you see, and feel. As a way of saying thank you for reading this blog, enter "blowout" at checkout to receive 50% off your order from June 29th-July 7th, 2011 on whatever Original All Style, No Stink dog collars are left in stock. It never hurts to have a few on standby. (supplies are limited) Lucky day to you and yours.

Winter Bliss

The long awaited Winter Bliss Collar  has finally arrived, and it's even cooler than we imagined. Why you ask? Because not only are these hand-filled collars beautifully crafted, but they offer new design elements that we are very proud of. First, each collar has an interior layer of reinforcement that runs the entire length of the collar from tip to tip, and around every hole. Secondly, you will find a new buckle that has rounded edges and a thicker, stronger, stainless steel center pin! Like old man Winter, these collars mean business.  However, like the beauty of snow, these won't last forever. We've produced a limited supply for each color and size, and once they're gone, they're gone. We had 600 pre-orders before they ever hit the website. So act fast.  On behalf of all of us at Dublin Dog Co., we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving week and we give thanks everyday for wonderful customers like you. Wishing you all the luck in the world...

I know my two dogs are thrilled with the warm weather, the longer days, and the brilliant sunshine. It makes them want to BARK, throw your tail up and BARK, hey hey hey hey....Wait I digress.  In the spirit of vacations, and all things fun, tell us what you are doing this Summer. Are your furry friends included? What's their favorite thing to do in the Summer? Be sure to include them in our Photo Gallery. I'll create a special folder to spotlight our Summer Shananigans.
