A few late night #unleashthehounds boxes for you 😍 Already looking forward to all the crafty holiday and winter photo-ops we’ll have with our packaging this season! Have you heard areas on the local mountains are practically swimming in snow? Let’s just say we’ve got some exciting plans this Winter 😉
Special thanks to @katarah_doodle for these festive photos once again! 🍁 We love them!
A water dog at its finest, you haven’t seen nothing until you see this girl sprinting for whichever point of water is nearest and diving in. It all started with her. What can we make that is stylish, yet stands up to her wild antics? She gave us the ultimate test back in January 2016 when she spent a terrifying two nights lost in the Mt. Hood wilderness. Her bandana was a prominent identifying marker during those two long days, I’ll never forget it, the moment we got that call, she’s been found, safe, purple plaid bandana still intact... goosebumps.
Unleash The Hounds has been an adventure in itself, growing, adapting, finding our way, it’s been a busy two years. Years that hold so many new friends, and countless dogs that we practically know and love all throughout this diverse community. Building this brand from the ground up and seeing how far we’ve come, I can’t create words to explain how grateful I am for each and every opportunity that’s been given, and everything that’s been learned along the way.
Summer 2017 will always be remembered to us as a moment we took a leap, made a change, added a new chapter to the story. The idea of bringing such beautiful textiles sourced locally was something near and dear to my heart when we first started this adventure using authentic @pendletonwm fabrics. Crafting such unique bandanas with their fabrics that are truly the first of its kind and introducing so many more of you to their brand has been such an honor. Seeing our bandanas made from these vibrant fabrics being showcased out in the wilderness, taken along for your personal adventures, something that was made right here in our studio, it’s truly something remarkable to be apart of!
If you’ve made it this far, I just want to say a personal THANK YOU for making Unleash The Hounds what it is today, and for following along with our journey. Providing premium-quality bandanas with your adventures in mind has been the biggest honor of all. We are nowhere near being done with our growing collection of bandanas, and we’re eager to see what the future brings! Layla is shown sporting the Douglas Plaid Bandana, handcrafted from a Pendleton plaid ❤️
How lucky am I to have a personal videographer dedicated to crafting these awesome behind the scenes videos?! Best hubby ever!

If you have a spare moment, be sure to check out our finished projects and subscribe! 👏 (You can find our YouTube channel link alllll the way on the bottom of our website homepage!)
Can you believe @rya_themunchkin already found SNOW?! She looks cozy and ready to adventure in her Classic Stripes Bandana, handcrafted from authentic @pendletonwm fabrics! Seriously, this bandana is already a classic in our book!👌
It’s another BIG shipping week, currently wrapping up four separate batches with 100’s of bandanas! Batch #1 is scheduled to fly out of PDX tonight, #2 getting started on packaging, #3 prepping for final touches, #4 will be hitting the sewing table this weekend (and another round of shipping confirmations get sent then!) Another busy week in the studio, who’s ready for some new ‘nanas?! They’re turning out GORGEOUS! 🙌
You know how I know I have the best customers ever? When I’ve already got our new photo feature email being flooded with photos!
@katarah_doodle’s mama went above and beyond with her ‘nanas before she opened them and they resulted in some beautiful close ups! 🦊 Happy to hear you guys are just as obsessed with our boxes as I am! #unleashthehounds
Probably the best dressed duo on the entire trail! 👌 Rocking The Neptune + Logan Bandanas handcrafted from authentic Pendleton® fabrics.

It's only fitting that our next feature includes the LUNA Bandana from our Pendleton® Collection! We've got another warehouse restock trip set for this week because oh my dogs, you guys scooped up the Olive Jacquard/Sandela faster than expected! 👌
Loooooots of progress being made on all our Autumn Collection launch orders, all fabrics/packaging materials have officially arrived so we're in for a pretty seamless next two weeks of shipping! 📦 You guys are going to LOVE them!
Found this gem of Layla from way back in Autumn 2015! She's about 3 times fluffier now 😭😂 We've got some exciting adventures planned for 2018, including setting our sights for a move further north in Washington! An Unleash The Hounds HQ in the woods doesn't sound too bad, I don't think this girl would mind either! 🐶🌲
Alrighty guys... let's have a chat!
We are constantly inundated with messages asking how to become an official ambassador for Unleash The Hounds, when the next rep search will be, and what it takes if you were to be chosen! The biggest hesitation for getting our next search started has been narrowing down the best way for us to team up with SO many of you who want to help spread awareness for our brand, score some extra savings while doing so, and also allow the uptick in traffic to be manageable.
Our previous two years of brand rep searches have played out with reps being given individual codes to promote, and based on that code usage they work their way up to additional free products. Of course, everyone has their niche, and those who provide HQ shots for marketing end up getting featured within our pages more frequently, resulting in reaching those code usage peaks more often.
So, the bigger question is... we want to hear YOUR opinions, tell me ideas/the best way to go about organizing an open-ended brand rep system where we can cycle through new reps quarterly/biannually, and keep those who want to continue to spread awareness active and engaged with code usage, alas continuing to earn free bandanas every few weeks/months based on their consistency.
The most difficult part we've run into previous years is NARROWING DOWN ENTRIES! We had well over 5,000+ entries, which is practically impossible to narrow down to only a few reps. This time around, we'll be looking for our ideal reps to provide HQ photos that fit our style of the product being worn/individual product photos are also a plus. Consistent overall engagement within pages/blogs. Variations between sizes/breeds.
As hard as it is to only choose a few, and with so many different ways to get the next search started, I am honestly curious to hear opinions directly from those who are interested in becoming an official rep for UTH! Is this something you'd like to be apart of? Any ideas I haven't thought of? Let us know your overall thoughts as we inch closer to our 2017/18 Ambassador Search!
And also, let's give a hand to these long time reps Hero + Justice! Use HERO10 at checkout + save! 👌
The Sandela Jacquard Pendleton® Bandana overlooking the beautiful #ColumbiaRiverGorge! We still have countless photos from our #AngelsRest hike to share, beyond grateful that we were able to spend a few hours photographing along the trail days before the #EagleCreekFire forever changed them.
It's been a tedious week around here keeping an eye on fire lines, and pushing through orders! Thankfully wind directions have changed and most of the thick smoke/ash has moved from our area. The fire spread quickly within the first 48 hrs (33,000 acres), but has tremendously slowed down with the assistance of 900+ firefighters 🙏
Our thoughts go out to all of those still under evacuations, and to all of our friends across the world going through hardships.
*All delayed packages from this week look to be back on track and have left PDX! I-84 outside of Portland is still closed, which has also delayed the arrival of our packaging materials. Updated delivery date for packaging is set for 9/11, which is what we're waiting on for the batch of shipping confirmations that went out last night! 📦 Fingers crossed we get boxes Monday! 🤞
Speechless. Watching our beautiful Columbia River Gorge burn today has been devastating. Our thoughts go out to all of those feeling the effects of the fire, and we hope containment starts soon 🙏 Our location is roughly 30-40 miles away from the sparked fire that started this morning across the Columbia River, which resulted in heavy ash falling all day and terrible breathing conditions in our area. So far no evacuations for us have been put in place, and we pray this continues to be the case! 🙏 Stay safe out there friends!
