Based in Dallas, Texas, USA, Art of the Pet is a small family business formed for our love of pets. Our family has owned, cared for, and loved everything from hamsters to horses - plus more than a few dogs, cats, and birds in between.
We are an online pet marketplace that connects pet owners looking for 'just the thing' with the artisans, craftspeople and designers who can design, make and supply it. The relationship also works the other way: helping seriously creative pet lovers find the people who want to purchase their products. These could be as simple as custom pet ID tags or pet memorials, to complete sets of custom horse tack to reptile habitats.
The Art of the Pet logo is based off a real pooch - a German Shorthaired Pointer named Piper. She's happy, energetic and has her own ideas about things - a lot like Art of the Pet! Our other official fur-partner is Harper, Piper's sister. We adopted Harper from the Texas GSP Rescue. Art of the Pet is actively involved with the group, as well as other organizations dedicated to both human and animal welfare.
We started this marketplace because every time we looked for customized items for Piper, Harper, and our other pets, we ended up on sites selling all sorts of other things too! If we searched for a simple custom-made dog collar, we'd be buried in irrelevant listings of mass-produced pet supplies. We looked in vain for an online marketplace devoted to handcrafted pet goods and were amazed to find that none existed. So we formed Art of the Pet LLC. We also wanted to support the Artists and Craftsmen who make great products for pets and need more visibility to get the word out about their amazing products for pets!
