Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do.

I am a recent college grad that works full time but still tries to make time for everything and everyone. I really enjoy being outside, wandering around, photography, and most things health and fitness. 

What about Bryn?

Bryn is a 2-year-old red merle Aussie. She is the best dog in the world (obviously, who doesn't think that about their dog lol). She's beyond smart, so funny, and very loving. Her favorite things in this world are her balls, frisbees, basically anything she can fetch, and just hanging out with her "dad". :) 

How did you first hear about Hoot & Co? 

I found Hoot and Co by searching Google and Etsy for bandanas with snaps because tying a bandana on a 4-month-old wiggly puppy just wasn't my cup of tea. I came across Hoot and Co and the rest was history. I've never been happier with a product! 

What's your favorite print at Hoot & Co? 

The Arlee flannel and the blue floral.

What keeps you coming back for more? 

This one is way too obvious. The amazing quality, willingness to please, the fact that my dog BEGS to have her bandanas put on, and Kaylynne's awesome friendship! :)

Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do.
I am a resident physician in ear, nose, and throat surgery. Unfortunately that leaves me with little time outside of work, but all of that time I spend with Allie, Gator, and Tony.  Tony is big into the outdoors and is an avid mountain biker.  Eventually we hope to be able to take the dogs mountain biking with him, but for now our hikes will have to do.  We also love traveling up to Chico, California to visit family with the dogs.  There’s so much more space up north to explore with the dogs and give them a bit more freedom. 
What about Allie & Gator?
Allie and Gator are not related, but you'd think they were based on how much they love each other!  Allie is the baby of the family; a huge cuddle monster.  She likes nothing better than curl up in your lap and kiss your face.  She warms up to people quickly and is very affectionate!  She can also be a bit cheeky, truth be told.  Gator is a little more reserved in personality, but he is the biggest sweetheart!  He is very responsive and wants nothing more than to hear the words "good dog."  Together they are the perfect team.  My life is so different since getting Gator a year and a half ago and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. 
How did you first hear about Hoot & Co?
Goodness that is a good question.  It was so long ago I'm not even sure!  I think by seeing the products on instagram on other dogs I fell in love.  It wasn’t until I got my first bandana, though, that I realized how high quality the product is!  Now that I've started to add an extra snap for Allie's bandana, every bandana is always perfectly made to fit. 
What's your favorite print at Hoot & Co?
My favorite print is hands down the Benson holiday bandana.  The colors are so vibrant and the combination is perfect for wintertime. Outside of the holiday bandanas, however, my favorite is the floral daybreak bandana.  It’s a rare mix of colors and patterns that work for every season. I can't get over how beautiful it looks on Allie. 
What keeps you coming back for more?
It may sound cheesy, but it’s the look I see on Gators face when I take out a bandana to put on him.  He is such a vain little man!  Nothing makes him happier than new collars, bandanas, and bows. We also get lots of compliments on them, which is a nice bonus!  Finally, when we go to the beach they help to keep the dogs cool in the hot weather.

Tammy & Cohen - @life.as.cohen
Location - San Diego, CA
Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do.
I work for Buckle, Inc. as a Social Media & Video Manager. Social Media has always been a passion of mine and we've made amazing friends through Cohen's Instagram account! I also started school back up in August to pursue my MBA. All of my spare time is dedicated to Cohen. We love hiking, going on walks, learning new tricks and behaviors, and Cohen likes to bust out his model face from time to time when we go on mini photoshoots. Our favorite place to visit is Colorado. 
What about Cohen?
Cohen is the happiest dog you'll ever meet. Everything is always 180% so amazing, awesome, and fun in his eyes! He goes to daycare everyday and his favorite thing to do is explore the outdoors. In the winter, he's especially addicted to snow and refuses to come back inside when there's snow on the ground. During these times, he confuses his identity with that of a bunny by the way he hops through the snow. During the summer, you can find him fetching sticks at the lake all day and all night. He will drop anything and everything for a stick. He will drop to the ground for belly rubs anywhere, anytime.  
Fun fact: The daughter of his previous owner named him "Chapstick" before he came home with me. 
How did you first hear about Hoot & Co? 
We were looking through all of our fur friends' photos and the bandanas they were sporting were always eye-catching. A ton of them were raving about their new wardrobe so we had to check it out and needless to say, we were not disappointed! 
What's your favorite print at Hoot & Co? 
Our all-time favorite print is the Tavern, but we LOVE all of Hoot & Co.'s flannel prints. Each release is a struggle where we try to fight the urge to buy, but ultimately always lose. ;) 
What keeps you coming back for more?
The quality and prints of the bandanas and bow ties can't be beat! Kaylynne is the best at making sure we are happy with our purchase and that the bandanas are the perfect fit for Cohen since he's a schmedium. Because we've gotten to know and love the person behind Hoot & Co., there's no reason for us to go elsewhere because we can place custom orders. The same quality and design with any print/pattern we want. What more could we ask for?

Emma, Willow, & Maya - @crazyaboutspots
Location - We live in Southern California.
Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do.
I am a full-time student, currently completing my senior year in college. I have an interest in photography and art and love to take photos of my family, friends, and my beautiful dogs. I ended up with so many photos of my dogs, that I decided to create a page especially for them called crazyaboutspots. I usually take my Border Collies on a run each day and try to capture moments throughout their playful adventures. 
What about Willow?
Willow is a one-year-old, chocolate-lilac merle Border Collie. She came as the perfect Valentine gift in 2015. In one year she has amazed us in countless ways and somehow puts a smile on the face of everyone she meets. She has a big and goofy personality, but soft and gentle ways. Maya is a 9-year-old, blue merle Border Collie. She came to us from a farm in Tennessee. Since the first day Maya came home, she has always been a loyal and intelligent friend. These two girls spend all their time looking for fun and adventure!
How did you first hear about Hoot & Co? 
I found Hoot & Co on Instagram of course! The creative style of Hoot & Co stood out and a friend recommended I switch it up a bit with some bandanas and bows for the girls. 
What's your favorite print at Hoot & Co? 
Currently our favorite prints are The Savannah Flannel and the Plum Arrow.
What keeps you coming back for more?
Hoot & Co offers creative prints and a wide variety of styles. After discovering Hoot and Co, I knew this was the shop for us! Each Hoot & Co product I have received has been incredible quality. We always receive the best customer service the girls maintain their style throughout the year!

Danielle, Ruckus, & Ransom - @the.r.brothers + @dlyneephoto
Location - We currently reside in San Marcos, TX 
Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do.
I have a great passion for art. I love photography, music, dance, and makeup. Seriously, I'm not sure whether or not I should be ashamed about the number of lipsticks I own. Above all, time with my furbabies is the best. Snuggling and watching scary movies? YES please!!!
What about Ruckus & Ransom?
Ruckus is our accident-prone child. No joke. He's a hot mess. A snakebite and four corneal ulcers in two months? Yikes! He's super sweet and loves to work. He goes absolutely bananas when it comes time to go hunting. We call Ruckus chubs because he loooves food. He will wait by the pantry in the morning before doing anything else. That boy will slobber in his food bowl more than any dog I've ever seen! Ransom is the baby of the family, and he knows it! They're both spoiled but Ransom is a high maintenance baby. He will sit in the bedroom at night and bark at me until I come give him cuddles. Our routine is to always snuggle before bed time. Love it. Ransom is the worst most picky eater ever. He won't eat unless there's a little something extra in his food bowl. High. Maintenance! He's also a huge hunter but less of a maniac than Ruckus in the field.  
How did you first hear about Hoot & Co?
We heard about Hoot & Co from Kaitlyn and Bryn on Instagram!
What's your favorite print at Hoot & Co?
Oh gosh ... I can't even decide! I am obsessed with all the plaid and love the holiday chevron bandana. We also love the colorful geometric bandana! We call that one Ruck's psychedelic bandana.  
What keeps you coming back for more?
The quality and the customer service. It's totally unmatched. That snap y'all, geeeeniuuss!!!! And Kaylynne is one strong lady boss! So admirable and inspiring.

Shawnee & Kato - @kato_the_aussie
Location - I am from Aumsville, Oregon 
RIP Kato 4.22.15 - 10.7.16 
Gone, but never forgotten + always apart of our hearts <3
Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do.
I genuinely enjoy photography and videography. Photography specifically has been my passion for a little over 5 years. I've also always been a dog person. Training and teaching Kato tricks are one of my favorite things to do to pass the time. I love music. I play the piano and a little guitar. I am a gamer too (Playstation, 3DS, etc.)! 
What about Kato?
Kato is hyper and high energy, stubborn and mischievous, just like it says in the heeler/aussie manual haha! He is also extremely intelligent, although his stubbornness would have you believe otherwise. He loves children, especially my 9-month-old son! He is more gentle and careful around him than anyone else, which is a very sweet thing to see with such rambunctious pup! 
How did you first hear about Hoot & Co?
I believe the first time we heard about Hoot & Co. was through @miniaussie_bryn on Instagram!
What's your favorite print at Hoot & Co?
I fell in love with the Buffalo Flannel Bandana as soon as I laid eyes on it! I am a huge fan of plaid in general, and the bandana looks awesome on Kato. It's by far our favorite!  
What keeps you coming back for more?
Above the modern designs, the speedy and genuine customer service, and all of the other perks that Hoot and Co. has to offer, we are exceedingly impressed with the quality of products and craftsmanship with every product that we have received from this sweet little small business. We appreciate purchasing products from a business who's aim is to make quality their main ambition, as high quality products are equally as important to us.

Nicole & Loki - @lokithegoldengod
Location - I am from Minnesota 
Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do.
I love photography and dogs, I pretty spend the majority of my time taking photos and hanging out with dogs. My job consists on taking care of dogs. I work at a doggy daycare and I enjoy being able to hang out with the dogs and keep my mind focused on caring and giving love and attention to the dogs. I am 18 years old and going to start my first year of college in the fall. I have been doing photography for 3 years and I plan to keep improving with that. 
What about Loki?
Loki is a 1-year-old Golden Retriever who is a clown, extra silly and happy. He is a very good model when it comes to taking photos. Sometimes he gets distracted but for the most part he loves the camera and when he sees it, he knows he is going to get a lot of treats. He has helped me through overcoming losing my heart dog, he is a great dog and I could not have asked for anything better. He loves his squeaky toys and will go crazy for new ones. He loves the snow and will zoom around with a big smile on his face. He is definitely one of a kind.   
How did you first hear about Hoot & Co? 
I heard about you through @miniaussie_bryn who told me that I really needed to try out your products. I was kinda hesitant at first because I had not had any luck with other products yet, they either kept breaking, did not fit, or the make was not all that great. I noticed you where getting a lot of good reviews so I had to try out on bandana. When I got the bandana I was blown away but the quality and the look of it. Nothing I had seen before. So far I have 5 amazing bandanas and 1 bow tie from you. I cannot wait to get more. 
What's your favorite print at Hoot & Co? 
My favorite print would have to be my custom Olaf bandana. I love it because I really love that happy snowman, it is super cute on Loki in the snow and it fits so well. He wears it the most out of all his bandanas; I have a print for every season as well. 
What keeps you coming back for more?
The number one thing that keeps me coming back is your attitude towards everything; you are very humble and happy go lucky. If something goes wrong you always are willing to help or re send another item if something breaks. Also the new products and prints I cannot get enough of waiting for the sales and watching the prints sell out. I am always super excited to see what you have in store and that's why I always keep coming back.

Stephanie & Finn - @thegoldenfinn
Location - Missouri! Mainly Kansas City area!
Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do.
I am currently attending Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine for their biomedical science masters program! I do photography on the side, and will be taking a year off in 2017 to explore my talents and see if I want to be a photographer or a physician. I am 5 feet tall and have a terrible sense of humor (only I think I'm funny). I am also a terrible singer, but I love to do it anyway! I enjoy taking baths, cooking, and lifting in my spare time (aka when I'm not taking photos of my dog or studying).  
What about Finn?
Oh man where do I begin? Finn was born February 23rd 2015, and I remember the day I picked him out. He was 4 weeks old, chubby as can be, and the only pup to have a white patch on his chest. Safe to say I was instantly captured by him. We have spent the last 10 or so months really getting to know each other, and now we are each other's best friends. He thinks he needs me, but really I would be nothing without him. That seems cliché but honestly he is my only real friend. People have their parents, who love them unconditionally (or who are supposed to), siblings who would rather not know you sometimes, and significant others who can break your heart or make it whole. But a dog? A living breathing canine who spends its every waking moment wishing that every moment would last forever in a field with you, tennis balls, and sticks? That's love. That's my best friend. That is the boy who I miss when I'm asleep, and love when he poops out my underwear or throws up my socks. That, my friends, is hard to beat. Anyway, he eats a lot of socks... Even if you think you have them picked up. He. Will. Find. Them. He eats his dog food in .2 seconds, and really loves those toys that you can put peanut butter or treats in. He also doesn't like to sleep in my bed, which makes me mad, but I guess the floor is cold and keeps him cool! That is all. Finally (I know).  
How did you hear about Hoot & Co?
I became friends with @lokithegoldengod and saw their post about Hoot & Co bandanas and literally that night I bought a bandana and a matching bow tie!  
What's your favorite print at Hoot & Co? 
The red and black flannel! It has a nice touch of yellow too! 
What keeps you coming back for more?
For sure Kaylynne! You can have an awesome business, but if you don't have good customer service and someone who is literally willing to go above and beyond for you, then you will fail. I ordered a XXL bandana from her right around Christmas and it was way too big for Finn, but the reason I ordered it was because the triangle on the XL part seemed too small for him on his first bandana. So I sent her and email and minutes later (without a second thought) she emailed me back saying she would custom make a size right for him... Now that is GOOD!

Jennifer, Riften, Markarth, & Azura
Location: Fargo, North Dakota

Tell us a little about yourself/things you like to do: I work full time as a graphic designer creating a variety of things every day! In my time away from work, I like to spend time with my boyfriend, take the dogs out to new spots, play Xbox (mainly Skyrim & Destiny), read, and watch anime. Essentially I’m a giant nerd.

What about the dogs?

I have 3 little turds! Riften is a Craigslist find that stole my heart from the first photo I saw of him! He is a  3 year old Australian Shepherd with a natural tail, making a lot of people mistake him for a Border Collie. He is a hot mess from his 2 months in his original home and suffers from separation anxiety! Markarth was a birthday gift 2 years ago! He is the weirdest dog you’ll ever meet; I was convinced he was deaf for the first 6 months and took over a year to potty train! Now, at 2, he is an amazing lil dude. He has his classic “little dog” syndrome where here seems to think that he must bark/growl at every little noise! But he is pro-cuddler and actually trusted to be out of the kennel when we are away. Azura is the baby, and will probably always be called “behbeh”. She is your classic Aussie. Never stops and loves fetch, never ending down the hallway at home! She is a lanky weirdo and the runt of the litter, she was supposed to be 40 lbs! He doesn’t make it into photos often, but I have the softest black cat named Hudson, he sleeps under the blankets.

How did you first hear about Hoot + Co? I heard about Hoot from Kaitlyn! We actually met at the dog park here when Riften and Bryn were babies and we’ve been friends since! I love the quality of the bandanas and all of the awesome prints that Kaylynne chooses!

What is your favorite print? It’s an oldie but I LOVE the blue pineapples! It was Riften’s first bandana!

What keeps your coming back for more? I love spoiling my dogs of course and they love wearing bandanas and their collars! They come running when I get them out and wear them for weeks at a time!
