San Francisco, CA
I stumbled upon The Foggy Dog when tackling the seemingly impossible task of finding a stylish dog bed that would stand up to the abuse of my dogs and their dig, turn, dig routine that precedes them curling up on any soft surface — and that I could easily toss in the washing machine. Check, check and check.
Name/Title: Rose Shattuck, owner
Launch date: February 2013
Inspiration for opening: I've been in love with textiles and dogs since I was a little girl. I started The Foggy Dog for dogs (and their owners) who love beautiful, well-crafted products. And, as my husband says - it gives me an excuse to look at fabrics all day long!
Merchandise source: Each cover is handmade with care in lovely San Francisco, using heavy weight fabric that is beautiful, durable, and machine washable.
Best selling item: People love the charming and versatile Gray Ikat Dot dog bed cover.
Your favorite item: All of them! But I love the cool gray color and slub texture of the Coastal Stripe dog cover.
Favorite store (other than your own): Schoolhouse Electric has beautiful artisan homewares.
