Canine Styles Dog Boutiques

Dog Talk (06-27-2015) #427: Dog Film Festival sponsor Canine Styles on New York’s Upper East side has been a fixture for dog fashion and quality grooming for decades, and owner Mark Drendel discusses how they have flourished as a niche of four city boutiques by understanding the special relationship between chic New Yorkers and their canines; Tracie welcomes Tyler & Nicole, who talk about what it was like to have to leave their Pug, Great Dane and Persian kitty back in Oklahoma when transferred to NYC for business, but will get their “canine fix” at the Dog Film Festival with the Founding Member tickets they bought as a “half-anniversary gift” to themselves, still on a honeymoon nine years later!; fitness expert and entrepreneur Jack LoParco explains how he came to embrace cricket flour as a healthy, renewable protein source and wound up turning it into gourmet dog biscuits called Chloe’s Treats, which are already very popular with the dogs (and their people, who can eat them too!) and will be appearing in the doggy swag bags at the Dog Film Festival.
