Your pet deserves beautiful, handmade products!
Buying yourself handmade products makes you feel good because you are getting a quality-made item and you are benefitting an artist and small business. Why not buy your pet handmade products to further this warm, fuzzy feeling when you're shopping? Pet owners should feel good about the products they buy!
The Amazon category, Handmade at Amazon, compiles products made from artisans around the world, including pet products! The pet-specific handmade category includes leashes, customized pet pillows, teepees and more!
Here are a few pet products from the Handmade at Amazon collection.
AURE Lines + Spaces is a small home goods store in Arizona. In the words of artist Susan Turner:
"AURE Lines + Spaces home decor products are inspired by organic, playful lines and themes found in nature."
These customizable pet pillows come in small (14 inches), medium (16 inches), large (18 inches), or extra large (24 inches). Pick your pillow size and they will request a photo of your pet. They will send you a proof of what your pet pillow will look like, you will approve it, and then your pet will live on your couch forever!
A pillow that looks like your best friend will run you $50.00.
This beautifully-made leash comes to us from artist Spencer who does leather work for Recneps Design in California. You can personalize your leash with up to five letters engraved on the leather tag and choose the color of the rope. Dog lovers will love this!
These beautiful braided leashes cost $32.99 with free shipping.
Any pup will be proud to sport this quality leather collar with its hand-crafted charm. The sweet mint green will go with any color dog coat and you and your dog will feel good about an OLIVE + ATLAS product. Artists Abby + Heather describe their company best:
"Our unique style in handcrafted dog goods are inspired by the spunk of a lil' dog named Olive, the loyalty of a big dog named Atlas, and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest in which we live."
The collar will run you $64.00 and a dollar from your purchase goes to Old Dog Haven and Project Canine.
Every pampered pet needs a pup teepee! Artisan Justin from TinyTeepees makes quality little play tents for kids and pets alike out of Utah! In his own words:
I am inspired by risk and the opportunity to start and finish something I don't know everything about. This fuels my creativity and motivates me to reach new levels each day.
One of these adorable, handmade teepees costs $79.00.
You can choose an aluminum, copper, or brass pet ID tag to represent your special pet. These beautifully printed pet tags from Lacy Sarue include a hand-printed symbol of your choice from a heart to a bone to a fish.
In the words of the artist:
"I have always enjoyed diving in head first into something that I know nothing about. Sometimes I fail and fall flat on my face but I always learn something new."
A personalized pet tag that's a bit more special will run you $10.00.

Are you tired of all the generic catnip toys and want to get your kitty something special? These little handmade, felt catnip fish are so cute and will drive your cats crazy. Artists Trish & Aidan of Miso Handmade make whimsical, adorable toys for pets and their people in California.
In the words of the artists themselves:
"We design our toys to please you as much as your pets. Toys make life more fun for them (and for us!) Play is an important part of healthy life and life is just too short for cheap jingle balls!"
