Pooch Totty is the only Pet Couturier still in business as of recently in the Philippines, the owner Sydney Quizon, designs and creates these beautiful gowns and costumes with absolute precision and the most exquisite quality.


Pooch Totty started on March 2014, by fashion designer Sheena Quizon, and Sydney Quizon who likes to dress up her dog, Sayuri. But we always look for other design with sturdy fabrics which is hard to look for the market.

After watching the christmas commercial of rosie, david gandy and sparkles the dog  back in 2013, with a fairytale theme. It was then, when they decided to have their own business of pet clothes starting with their fairytale collection. After the success of their first collection they started introducing new designs.

According to its owner Sydney Quizon "The concept of pooch totty, is a daily glam for a modern stylish pooch. We want pets (cats and dogs) to look fabulous each day because we believe everyday is a special day."


Pooch Totty by definition translates to a ritzy fashionable pet, which the business tries to maintain.




They are so good that they were asked by Chalk Magazine to design Hawaiian pet clothing for the surprise doggy party of Janella Salvador, a local celebrity. As for the future of Pooch Totty, they announced that they will be launching Couture Pet Scarves by 2018.

You may order online her pre-existing designs or you can send a design of your own for her to do. It takes about a week or two (depending on the details) before you receive your custom made dog clothes, so send in your orders atleast two weeks before the actual need. Don't worry, it takes quite a bit of time but the results are magnificent, high quality, and very well tailored.


The Kardogshians are avid fans and customers of Poochtotty, we first met her on instagram and was blown away by how well made her products are. Here are only some of the gowns and costumes we got from her;

The Filipiniana and Barong Tagalog (Philippines Traditional Wear)

Bringing your dog with you in your travel adventure is the same as bringing a baby. You need to take due diligence at all times and always be prepared to whatever comes your way. Here are some rules and tips you should always take into consideration when bringing your dog...





Do: Pick Up After Your Pet
Don’t: Just leave the mess behind


JUST BE RESPONSIBLE. Since you’ve decided to bring your pet wherever you go, please make sure that you pick up after your pup. We’re looking at you miss don’t mind don’t care. People who leave their dog’s poop are giving a bad name to all dog owners everywhere. In fact, the once dog friendly places in Baguio, Tagaytay and Subic, banned dogs in their premises because of irresponsible pet owners who do not pick up their dog’s poop. Be responsible and pick up that poop, if you don’t want to be an inconvenience to a lot of people everywhere.


When traveling with your dog, prior planning is a must and duly considerations must be made. Planning includes, calling your hotel and other places in your itinerary to see if they’re pet friendly and adjusting if it aint so, and packing the right stuff to make sure everything you need is there, and what kind of transportation is available.

You plan ahead to make sure that everything's all set for you and your dog, check the itinerary if there are places in there that don't allow dogs admission, if so you need a contingency plan (locking your dog inside a car, or leaving them at the guard IS NEVER AN OPTION)


Kardogshian Tip: What we do is, we put every place that don't allow dogs admission on the middle days of the itinerary, that way I can leave the doggies inside my hotel room making sure they're safe.


Dont bring your dog if your transport choice is by commute, no buss lines would ever allow your dog inside the bus, some of them would even advice to put your dog at the compartment bellow (and if you're considering this, dont own a dog please)


If you're going to be a pet owner who wants to travel with their pet, it is suggested that they get travel trained as early as possible so that the dog can get used to the idea and wont get stressed anymore. Traveling is stressful to most dogs, you can see it through their actions, some would pace around, some would barf, some would cry, and some would downright poop.

A post shared by The Kardogshians (@khaleesithediva) on


Part of travel training is potty training, you need to train the little one not to poop or pee inside the car, but to do their business while at stopover stations.

To do this, once you get your puppy at atleast 4 months old, bring them along in short drives, let them adopt to traveling in a car, once they're used to car travel take them on a short distance out of city trip, repeat this till you get it right.



We don't mean to scare you people, but DOGNAPING is real, just like what we mentioned in our intro, bringing a dog to travel is like bringing a baby, it needs constant attention and safeguarding. Pet owners should always keep an eye on their furbabies not only for their safety but the safety of everyone as well.


Make sure you have everything you need to ensure the comfort and security of your dog, and to seamlessly travel without the inconveniences. So what are these essentials? Basically you need
  • Dog Food
  • Water Bottle
  • Leash and Collar (Harnesses are highly recommended when traveling)
  • Pet Blanket
  • Poopbag
These are essentials. Other things such as towels, shampoos and what not are just circumstantial needs, for example, when going to the beach it's good to have a beach towel and shampoo to rinse off all the salt water. So in packing for your dog, take in consideration what will make him or her more comfortable in this specific trip that you're planning.



CHECK OUT THE KARDOGSHIANS' TRAVELING MUST HAVES



This is more of a life hack than it is a rule. What most dog owners don’t know is that some dog food are being sold in sachets in grocery stores, which is a perfect size for one serving per dog. Also incase of an emergency Seven11 sells some (but not all branches)

However, should you find dog food sachets to be expensive, you can just repack you’re own using ziplocks, this way their food are properly portioned per meal.

Kardogshian Tip: What we do is, I got this layered baby milk container where I put in dog food in meal portions that can last for 4 days max.


A lot of people love to travel with their dogs. Always take in consideration your dog’s size, skills, and temperament, in relation to your itinerary, activities, and transport conditions before bringing him or her. There are itineraries or places that restrict certain dog sizes, most hotels and resorts nowadays only allow small dogs to be brought inside the rooms. 

As far as activities are concerned, make sure that your dog wont be a hassle to you or that your dog wont be stressed, this is only to maintain enjoyment in both ends. In illustration; You don’t bring a chihuahua to a camping or hiking trip because you’ll end up carrying him or her all throughout, and you wouldn’t wanna bring a labrador to a tour around the city because most touring places are too crowded and it’ll stress your dog



This is not to say that bringing fido is not a good idea, what we want to stress here is that some adventures are meant without fido and some adventures are meant to be enjoyed with fido.




This is very important for your pet's health and well being, keeping them comfortable should be taken with the outmost importance. If you're to bring a furry dog, let's say a pomeranian to the beach, make sure he or she gets a lot of water and shade so that he or she  won't suffer heatstroke or overheating, If you're going on a hike, make sure to take short breaks in between to give your dog time to rest, If you're going on a long drive make sure he or she is secured and comfortable with beddings and some pillows.

  

Should you travel with your family or friends, your travel buddies must be informed of your plus one. You owe it to them as courtesy, as it is just as much their adventure as yours. Are there anyone in your group allergic to fur? are there anyone in your group afraid of dogs? Are they willing to adjust? those are the things you need to make sure before bringing fido. 

Bringing a dog unannounced can cause serious issues among the group, there might be places in your itinerary that cannot accommodate dogs that people will have to adjust for, or people can get annoyed at you for ruining such plans.


This is basically the sum of everything mentioned. Just be prepared, emotionally, and physically. You need to prepare yourself mentally to be responsible at all times, and physically prepared as bringing fido can be effortful and tiring at times. Being prepared can help a lot in making the whole trip enjoyable by both the human and the dog.



Bring your furbaby on a trip with you takes a lot than what we normally think, It takes preparations, careful planning, a lot of effort, and a lot of adjustments, but it sure is worth it as bringing dogs to travel can be so much fun for you and your dog. 

Humans like dogs need to adapt as well, at first it can be overwhelming to bring your dog along, but once you get the hang of it, it is definitely a lot of fun.

THE KARDOGSHIANS FAMILY

Date of Adoption: February 10, 2015 
Breed: Lab-Mix
Likes: Mommy and the other Humans, Big Bones, Long Walks and Play Time
Dislikes: Khaleesi
Color Assignment: Purple

Raven is the first to join the Padilla family. She was adopted from a friend with the hopes of aiding in the youngest Padilla's anxiety issues. Raven was separated early from her biological mother at only 1 month old, as a result, she's gotten very attached to her adopted family, she grew up sleeping right next to the family members, feeling like she found the perfect home.

Shes borderline obsessed with the Padillas. The family loves their OG baby and their OG baby loves them as well. She was taught to sit and stand on command and she was quick to learn. Recently she learned how to hug on command.

Whenever the Padillas have guests over the house, they always end up saying "Raven's my favorite" because of her lovable ways, but be warned she knows trouble when she sees one, she might be as sweet as apple pie but if a bad guy comes, her inner warrior will appear.



Birthday: January 22, 2015 
Date of Adoption: June 27, 2015 
Breed: Chihuahua
Likes: Soft beds, Gorgeous Clothes, Bellyrubs, Being Carried and Attention
Dislikes: Long Walks, Food Stealers, Not Being the Center of Attention
Color Assignment: Pink

Khaleesi was adopted at PAWS. This feisty little girl quickly gained her title as a diva, when we brought her home, she ran quickly to the sofa and refuses to be touched by anyone till she started warming up to us. The first trick she learned was to "pose" on command as her designated human is a photographer, the second and third tricks she learned is to dance and act sad on command. 

She has gained popularity on Instagram which paved ways for her diva celebrity-like lifestyle; she walked on multiple runway shows, won contests, endorsed online businesses, appeared on several events, and was briefly featured on a local television show. Now she owns about 300 pieces of clothing in her own closet. 

She's the most accident prone amongst all the Kardogshians, and speaking of accidents, she gave birth last year to four gorgeous pups, however only the twins were able to remain in the household. She once suffered a miscarriage but is doing well now.




Birthday: April 10, 2015 
Date of Adoption: July 10, 2015 
Breed: Shihpoo
Likes: Cuddles, Being Carried, Little Puppies,
Dislikes: Disappointed Humans, and Blowing on Her Fur
Color Assignment: Red

Loves everyone and everything, Harley Quinn is the ultimate sweetheart in the group. She was brought home as a birthday gift for the eldest Padilla child, and is being well taken cared of by her. Harley Quinn has that soft caring spot for everyone, and a sort of maternal instinct when it comes to the twins. She's not as competitive like the others when it comes to food.

She's clingy and independent at the same time, when the humans are not around she knows how to take care of herself as well as others, but when a human is present she'll cling on you like it's been forever since she last saw you.

She's very curious, she loves to explore and try out new things. Whenever Bart is humping her she knows how to fend him off, by sitting on the floor, (Now that's one doggie contraceptive she invented herself) She's playful and energetic, and makes herself available for everyone who wants to play.




Birthday: August 26 2015
Breed: Pomspitz
Likes: Bellyrubs, Long Walks, Guarding the House, and Playtime with Human Daddy
Dislikes: When Human Daddy Leaves for School
Color Assignment: Blue

His long name is Bartholomeow Vaugn Jojo. He's called Bart most of the time (because his human daddy loves Bart Simpson.) When he was first brought home, he didn't get a very warm welcome from his prior sisters, as it is their first time to encounter a male dog in the house, he was most of the time bullied by latter, but then as time got by, he claimed Alpha status and became the protector of his sisters. He might not be the toughest and the bravest (Raven and Khaleesi are) but he gets the job done.

He's very clingy, he loves to come wherever his human daddy goes, and he's very playful with his other siblings. Bart can be sum up as a huge ball of furry energy, he never runs out of it, even as we're about to go to sleep, he always runs around to check if the bedroom is safe.

While this mischievous boy has yet to learn any tricks as of yet, he have won contests on Instagram as well as walked some of the runways Khaleesi has been to.



Birthday: October 26, 2016
Breed: Chihuahua
Likes: Any Human
Dislikes: Heights
Color Assignment: Yellow

Among the three baby girls of Khaleesi she was the last to be chosen, At first the Family was so sure of keeping the one with the richest darkest brown fur, but then Kylie won them over with her sweet and clinggy, boarderline needy, personality. She's energetic and lovable. She can make anyone she comes in contact with be allured by her. Whenever her human daddy sits on the sofa she's the first to sit on his lap.

She's often described as Raven's Mini Me as they share a lot in common, they have the same personalities, looks, and loving ways. Unlike the elder Kardogshians, she has yet to discover her niche in the social media biz, and we're all very excited to see what she comes out as.



Birthday: October 26, 2016
Breed: Chihuahua
Likes: Nothing...
Dislikes: Everything...
Color Assignment: Green

Konnor seems to be a cat in a dog's body, he doesn't like to be touched, he doesnt come when called (even with food), but he has his moments where he just wants to squeeze in bed or on the sofa with the humans and the other Kardogshians. He's very alof but wins you back with his adorable head tilt (his signature pose.)

Konnor and Kylie goes hand in hand, they never leave each others side, he's always there for his twin. In fact, out of the two he was the first one to learn how to go up and down the stairs, Kylie's afraid of heights so it took her awhile to learn how to go up and down the stairs on her own, but before she was able to conquer her fears, Konnor would escort her up and down the stairs even if he has to go up just to fetch her up.



Birthday: January 7, 2017
Date of Adoption: October 6, 2018
Breed: Siberian Husky
Likes: Playtime and Daily walks
Dislikes: Being carried

Maya is the biggest yet the youngest of all the Kardogshians. She's energetic and playful, quite the stubborn lady but is super sweet in her own little ways.
