By the Get Leashed Doggy Style team

When someone as cool as our past Doggy Style feature, Brock, tells us to check something out, we listen. And when that something is K9 Leather, a new line of seriously stylish doggy harnesses, we get pumped – after all, what dog owner isn’t looking to trick out their pup in new ways? In fact, we were so into K9 Leather’s style, we figured we should probably meet the innovator – Corey – and get to know the dog behind the man behind the brand. Which led to meeting the whole (soon to be larger) fam.

Corey and his wife, Tamara, live in Toronto with Bella the “Froston” – an energetic, ball-toy crazy dog that wants nothing more than to make friends with anyone who might potentially throw the ball for her. And best of all, she’s the perfect model for the rugged, leather harnesses Corey has produced.

You can follow K9 Leather on Instagram and be sure to pre order a harness now if you think the durable yet comfortably classy look is right (trust us, it is) for your flat-nosed pup.

We’ll let Corey tell you about life with his wife Tamara and Bella their adorable dog – and their new addition, coming soon!

Tell us about yourself:

I am a publicist, whose niche lies in working with emerging technology and innovation. The biggest perk is helping my clients go from brainstorming an idea on the whiteboard to creating a finished product. I am an early bird who takes pride in maintaining constant communication with all my clients; albeit via calls, emails, or cocktails. My relationships are strong and our clients love us.

A bit about your pet:

Bella is a Froston (part Boston Terrier and part French Bulldog).  I decided to get her because they are good apartment dogs, who sleep most of the day. She suits my personality because she has a lot of personality herself! We are both very active and playful when we want to be, but also enjoy relaxing and a good afternoon nap!

What does your ideal weekend look like?IMG_4094

My wife and I love taking Bella to the farmer’s market on Saturday mornings. We always share a cinnamon bun and let Bella run around in the off-leash dog park. In the evenings, we enjoy trying new restaurants around the city and hanging out with friends.

Describe your personal style:

Casual street style. I am an avid sneakerhead; so you’ll always catch me wearing something funky and rare.

What inspires you?

My wife inspires me to push myself and strive to be the best I can be. Malcolm Gladwell inspires me to stick to my goals and focus on what it is that I am after. This is why I am launching k9leather

How would you describe the look and feel of your home?

Trendy and casual.

Please share a pet story:

Bella is a devoted lover and strong fighter. She is always excited to see family and get a butt rub from strangers. One avid memory is when she narrowly missed being hit by a car, but was able to walk away from it with just scratches.
