bhRuby Chan’s goal was to create luxury dog accessories with great, modern design using only the highest-quality materials she could find and the best workmanship possible.  But, the products had to be both beautiful and functional! Taking the Bauhaus design movement as her inspiration, she started BOWHAUSNYC for discriminating dogs and their owners.

BOWHAUSNYC offers the finest in, Leashes, Harnesses, Collars, Accessories (including coats and collar charms), Travel (totes, carriers, and travel bowls), and Beds (luxurious crate covers and pads). All feature Ruby’s unique style and talent and far from the ordinary pup attire and accessories.

BOWHAUSNYC has been featured in Moderndog, Cosmo Girl, Doggie Aficionado, CBS Morning Show,  and Fido Friendly.

BOwHAUSNYC Wristlet Water Bowl

My three pups received a collapsible water bowl to try out.

Wristlet Water Bowl – Eau la la! Walk in style with this fashionable Wristlet. It unzips into a nifty water bowl. It is made in black nylon with waterproof lining.  Available in Black with gold hardware.  Size: 3″ x 4 1/2 $24.00

This is not only perfect for traveling, it’s adorable as well! Whenever my pups go along for a ride with me I end up getting them a small water from a drive-thru restaurant.  I pull off the lid and coax them to drink from the cup – not easy for the littlest one and nearly impossible for my Brittany – his tongue hits the bottom and it splashes everywhere!  This little bag rides right on my console and takes up about 4-1/2″ x 1/8″ of space and that’s it!  It unzips to a generous and flat-bottomed water bowl.  Cleaning is easy, just dump out the remaining water and let it air dry before zipping it closed.  It’s also perfect for walks – it can hold your key or credit card until it’s needed as a water bowl.  Love it!

Do I need such a luxurious bowl? No, but it works beautifully and looks great – why not enjoy something everyday in a unique way?  It sure beats the normal plastic bowls available.  This is the perfect gift for a pet owner!


BOWHAUSNYC Travel Collapsible Toile Bowl

One lucky dog will will a Collapsible Toile Travel Dog Food Bowl!
