Designer fashion brands have started releasing collections specifically dedicated to pet parents and their fur babies. Emblazoned with iconic logos and made from the finest quality materials, every item is made to look chic and stylish rather than garish and kitsch like most of the existing pet-related accessories.

The front edge of the Wowl bowl is lower than the back one, allowing your four-legged friend to eat without dropping food on the floor. The steel cup is removable from the body, making it easy and effortless to clean. Besides functionality, the dog bowl pleases an eye and works as a stylish decorative detail.
