Fashionable & Functional Pet Products for you and your Furry Friend

Urban Tails Pet Boutique is a small Australian business, based in Melbourne, which began on Etsy in 2020.  The store was inspired by our first rescue dog, Avon Barksvale.  After adopting Avon I found it difficult to find stylish dog accessories which were both fashionable and strong enough to withstand a staffy.  I started making my own collars, leashes and bandanas.  After receiving compliments on our walks, I decided to make them available for you and your pup. 
I later expanded the range to include a variety of products including dog beds, feeders, leash holders and other dog décor to compliment the modern home.  I also offer a selection of matching accessories for the pet parents, and gifts for the dog lover such as dog themed mugs and wine glasses.

 

The Team

me, Avon & Piper

Me (Kara) – founder, maker & dog mum.

I personally handmake all the products sold on the website.  I pride myself on the high quality of the products and love creating new designs and custom orders.  Our dogs mean everything to me and I would love to quit my 9-5 so I can spend more time with them!

 

 

Avon

Avon – product tester & model. 

Avon is an English x American Staffy, named after Avon Barksdale from our favourite TV series 'The Wire'.  We rescued Avon in 2018.  His interests include playing ball and going to the dog park.

 

 

 

 

Piper – product tester & model

Piper is the newest member of the team, she is an American Staffy we rescued in April 2021.  She loves walkies, belly rubs. and her brother Avon - although she's still not sure about all other dogs!

 

 

 

 

Being excitable staffies who love to pull on a lead makes these two ideal products testers!  They test all products for strength and durability.

all products are staffy approved

 

My Mission – to provide strong & stylish luxury pet products for other dog obsessed pet parents. 

As all the products are handmade to order, they are fully customisable for dogs of all shapes and sizes.  If there's nothing to suit you and your four legged friend, I would love to work with you to create a bespoke product for your fur baby.  You can contact me at sales@urbantailspetboutique.com.au and I'll be happy to help with any enquiries.

 

Donations to dog rescue groupsOne of my goals when starting this business was to help other dogs like Avon & Piper find their forever home.  That's why a portion of every sale is donated to a dog rescue charity to help a dog in need.  So, you can feel good about spoiling your dog, knowing that you are also helping a dog which is not as lucky as yours!
