SNOB HOUNDS Swarovski crystal-trimmed SPEEDRACERS are a high performance Lycra PJ that offer excellent UV protection (a first in canine fashion) and acts like a windbreaker, keeping your dog warmer, dryer, and more comfortable. SPEEDRACERS keep your pup calm during anxious moments such as thunderstorms, trips to the vet, and owner separation.
SNOB HOUNDS practical, interchangeable canine clothing system also includes overcoats, raincoats, four-legged fleece PJ’s, the innovative four-legged Lycra SPEEDRACER suits and two-legged fleece and Lycra sweatshirts. Every piece combines high quality with the cutting edge style that has made Snob Hounds famous.
Laura Dion-Jones Casey, Snob Hounds partner and designer, is an elite distance walker who walks 2700 miles a year, most of them with her two Italian Greyhounds. She developed the multi-functional, trans-seasonal, all weather outdoor/indoor layering system of canine clothing as lifestyle wear to protect her dogs from extreme conditions. With her dogs, she has personally road-tested every garment.
Every piece that Laura creates is designed first and foremost for functionality. “Highly-styled form certainly follows function, where I’m concerned,” Laura says. “Think Nike meets Donna Karan – but for canines.”
Laura’s extensive background in clothing design and fashion, coupled with her continuous field tests, are a testament to Snob Hounds uniqueness. “Snob Hounds dog clothing is real lifestyle wear,” Laura says, “not ‘canine costumes.’ No Paris Pink Poufs here.”
SNOB HOUNDS partner, Barbara Karant, brings her artist’s eye and creative design background to SNOB HOUNDS in a variety of ways that compliment Laura’s. With credentials from RISD and The Art Institute of Chicago, Barbara has taught, published, exhibited and been awarded by some of the nations most prestigious museums, galleries, magazines and institutes.
Both Laura and Barbara are committed to rescue and live with respectively their two adopted Italian greyhound rescues and three retired racing greyhounds. A portion of sales is donated to support canine rescue groups.
Think SNOB HOUNDS when you want your pooch to be the envy of every other hound in the pack.
