Who runs the world? Dogs, of course. And, in the case of Animals in Charge, a particular pooch named Pixel, who demands only the best for his kind. Founded in 2015 by Alex and Mel Barnett, their products are respectful of tradition, ranging from leads and collars to bowls and ID tags. Made with outstanding integrity and genuine care, their passion married with Pixel’s discernment has allowed them to create products to the highest level.
Organic cotton leashes can be paired with wood-block patterned collars (hand-printed in India) or bespoke-dyed and weaved cotton collars (made in Guatemala on a hand-operated loom). They also foster, rescue, and rehome dogs from inhumane puppy farms and donate 5% of profits to rescue and rehabilitation charities. The world definitely is a rosier place from a pooch’s point of view.
We are thrilled to introduce Dog-Friendly, a collection of city guides for dog-loving people, created together with our long-time contributor, photographer Winnie Au, and fellow enthusiasts, indie publisher Hoxton Mini Press. Available for purchase here.

Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.
