Paddywack is proud to carry Bark Boutique in Mill Creek, Washington. Bark Boutique is a Portland, Oregon based company founded in 2007 and owned by Kristine Smith. The inspiration behind her collar and leash line were her two fur kids Murphy and Bailey - both labrador retrievers. Kristine would often go shopping for great looking, high quality collars for her pups, but would come home wanting something different and more unique than the offerings she could find at her local pet stores. With an extensive background in sewing, she embarked on doing it herself, and to her amazement many friends and acquaintances saw her collars, loved them and wished to purchase them for their own dogs! Kristine is a detail oriented, quality oriented individual with a terrific eye—her collars are very well made, and impeccably designed. Bark Boutique bridges many themes and fulfills a great deal of needs in so far as customers’ tastes---all collars have a very unique flair. Some collars are in the pattern of the traditional “bandana” patterns, updated in trendy colors to keep the look fresh and new. Others are embellished with beautiful flowers, paisley patterns, polka dots or “retro styles” in eye catching and vivid colors that really make the collars and leashes “pop.
