Laura and her dogs personally road test every single garment.

Each piece that Laura creates is designed first and foremost for functionality. "Highly-styled form always follows function, where I'm concerned," Laura declares. "Think Nike meets Donna Karan - but for canines - and you'll understand the core of Snob Hounds Essentials."
