Rustic Hound Headed To The Sports Emmy® Awards

Rustic Hound dog collars to be included in Official Emmy Gift Bag for 33rd Annual Sports Emmy Awards

Online PR News – 07-April-2012 – Taunton, Massachusetts – Rustic Hound, located in Taunton, Massachusetts has been selected to feature their unique dog collars at The 33rd Annual Sports Emmy Awards in New York City, coming up on April 30th. Each guest, 800 in total, will receive The Official Emmy Gift Bag produced by Off The Wall Gifts in New Hampshire. Businesses from across the United States are selected to showcase their brands at this prestigious event.

"We don't do dainty" says Jillian Downing, co-founder of Rustic Hound. These remarkably durable collars are waterproof, fade resistant and are made to withstand the dirt, snow, and the ocean water that every dog loves! But what makes these collars so different and so personal is the customizing capability. Rustic Hound uses Jibbitz™ shoe charms, manufactured by Crocs™ Footwear, to bring out the personality of the pet. Tennis balls, squirrels, flowers, horseshoes and paw prints are just a few examples of how the collars can identify with pets and their owners.

Rustic Hound was founded in 2011 by Jerry Wilkins and Jillian Downing who were inspired by their dogs, other dog lovers, and the never ending search for products that are unique. “We felt that our dogs' personalities were bigger than any product we could find, and that it was time to add some character to the same old thing” says Jillian Downing.

"It was shocking to receive an email from Off The Wall Gifts about possibly being involved in this event. We thought it was a scam at first, but after some research we knew this opportunity couldn’t be passed up." says Jillian Downing. Rustic Hound then contacted Jibbitz™, and they supplied 800 of their charms. Each gift bag will receive a gift box/gift card good for one collar, and one charm.

Rustic Hound was inspired by the founders' dogs, other dog lovers, and the never ending search for products that are unique. The company had a vision of a collar that gave owners the opportunity to design it to their likes, or their special interests. Their biggest concern was that it would be durable, and for the dog that goes everywhere with its owner. Rustic Hound was made for those who wander off the path.
