Pet Product Review: Dogs & Cats Get Organized!

by Mary Haight on March 28, 2010

As I was fishing out the dog’s comb, brush, and scissors from one area, and the nail clippers andhangstor_promin_640w wipes and finishing brush from another, I thought wouldn’t it be great to get the dog organized? Spring cleaning is on my mind. It’s time to get this scattered mess straightened out and review what’s new in pet products storage for organizing dog and cat things.

I remembered one of the businesses in a story I did almost two months ago, a place called Yep Yup, as there was talk of organizers and pet dossiers, a phrase which triggered ideas of CIA dogs on a mysterious mission, yet when I checked the website there was nothing there.  After some emails and a phone conversation, I got the lowdown.

Yep Yup’s new website would launch in mid-March with seven fresh design concepts. Gerardo and Sepi Herrera, a husband and wife design team, use their travel experiences as inspiration and arecollection_helio_105w known for the effort they put into using eco-friendly materials. From canisters to dinner dishes to placemats, pet beds with matching throw pillows and blankets, Yep Yup offers clean design and styling that’s attractive, functional, and easy on the planet. I had some questions and here’s Gerardo’s emailed response:

I think you’ve got great looking products here, especially with the vegetable dyes and recycled goods. Are these all cotton blends? Has the material been prewashed for fading?

To clarify we are using water based inks and are printed under the strict EPA standards in Los Angeles/California. The green fiber is made from recycled PET (water and soda bottle material) that is made in the USA as well.  As with 100% cotton, there will be some fading over time with a nice wear in, thus the instructions are clear about wash in cold and line dry. Insert is also washable and since green fiber/PET does not absorb water so line dry is perfect.

They say the organizer will hold all a dog’s toys?  Tashi needs a toy box for his squeeky toys, but I could put the most favored toys and chews in the organizer when people visit:)  The organizers are grommeted and hang on the inside of any door. Made of 100% cotton canvas, they are 10.5″ x 49″ and you provide the hardware. $59.   

The Pet Dossier is a $1.99 phone app, no mission impossible here, that carries all your pet’s essential information, pictures, microchip number, registration, birthday, vet’s number, daycare, etc., and is customizable. Here’s a shot of what the screens look like:

Thanks, Gerardo, for filling us in on all the great things available at your place, especially those used in this review. Congrats to Yep Yup!

I dream of being this tidy, and Yep Yup's products have such nice style -- the organizer would look good even on the outside of a door!

That organizer is pretty cool looking. Need to talk to the "boss" and she if she wants it for the family room closet. iPhone app looks cool too, but I dumped my iPhone so I can't review it. :-(

I *like* that organizer that hangs off the the door! I love keeping things tidy and right now all of Jersey's stuff is in plastic totes in the hallway closet. This gadget would keep everything handy, instead of me having to dig thru plastic tubs when i need something.

Wow, those are cool products! I love the *idea* of getting organized, and even if I don't always put all my earrings in the earring tree or my shoes in the shoe bag (which is what the toy organizer reminds me of), purchasing these items makes me feel like I could get organized whenever I need to -- e.g., as you say, when friends come over... That phone app is especially appealing -- something that is genuinely useful without needing to invest more than an initial effort to input the information. Now all I need is a smart phone...
