At Big Dog Plaid, our goal is make a difference - both in the lives of big dogs and the owners, and also to the community (which is why a portion of all proceeds from our "Anchors Aweigh" bandana are donated to service organizations like Wounded Warrior Project & Shelter to Solder).
So, when Baxter's mom reached out to us and shared the following...
"Baxter is a very active member of the community and loves to give back to others. He is a certified Therapy Dog and regularly visits the Children's Hospital as well as long term seniors care homes, universities and schools for children with disabilities. To see the difference Baxter is able to make in so many lives, is one of the most rewarding and inspiring things."
...we were SO excited to welcome this handsome, charitable boy to the team!

Why does Baxter (and his momma) like Big Dog Plaid? We love Big Dog Plaid because the owner (Alyssa) is so personable and helpful. She was very fast and responsive to all our questions. The collar is great quality and the plaid pattern is such a hit with all our doggie friends, plus it looks great against Baxter’s fur color. Baxter can’t wait to sport more Big Dog Plaid products in the future!
