I have been obsessed with the idea of bottle openers for dog collars for quite a while now.
I first encountered a dog with bottle opener bling on the set of the Pet Pops video.
The notion amused and impressed me so much that I eventually outfitted Luke with a bottle opener.
Then, it occurred to me that creating a line of bottle openers intended to be used by dog lovers would be a great way to spread around this fun idea while also supporting my personal projects and raising funds for animal rescue.
Voila! Beer Paws were born.
I officially founded the company with the state of Missouri this week.
The first round of button style bottle openers were a hit at the Cinco de Mayo Chihuahua parade, and I’ve already had some out of state orders.
At 2.5 inches, this particular style is a little big for small dog’s collars.
But it works great at the end of a leash, or even attached to your own bag or keys.
Eventually, I see the Beer Paws brand encompassing a little bit more than just bottle openers. But for now, that’s where I’m starting.
The official Beer Paws website will soon go live. In the meantime, please Like the Beer Paws fan page on Facebook.
Place your orders via the Wayward Dogs shop on Storenvy.
If you’re in Kansas City, you can also buy Beer Paws directly from me or from the following purveyors:
I’d love to hear what you all think of this idea. Please share your thoughts in the comments or send me an e-mail!
