Meet Vegas & Elio… the inspiration for DoubleDog Stitches and Designs

The inspiration for our business came from our two dogs Elio and Vegas.  We wanted something different for our spoiled pooches and started making embroidered collars for them.  We are ROB & KIM BENTLEY of MAPLE RIDGE, B.C., CANADA and in 2011 we started up DOUBLEDOG STITCHES & DESIGNS.  Rob has over 30 years of sales experience and Kim brings over 35 years of sewing expertise.

We can be reached at our contact page, or you can email Rob directly at [email protected] . We would be happy to discuss any special requests or ideas you have for your dog’s collar or leash.

Elio is an 8 1/2 year old Welsh Terrier born in Washington State, USA. She came to British Columbia, Canada as an energetic 8 week old puppy. She is a typical Terrier with a very high energy level and a great mind of her own. Elio loves to go for walks and chase balls at the local parks, and when she gets near water, she is in for a swim. All this while wearing one of her many custom collars.
Vegas is a Cocker Spaniel who is approximately 11 year old, from Southern California. She, and 25 other Cocker Spaniels, were rescued from a terrible hoarding situation when she was about 2. A number of fabulous rescue groups stepped in and all of the dogs rescued were sent in different directions to find their forever loveable homes. Angels Under Our Wings Cocker Spaniel Rescue brought her and a few of her siblings to British Columbia, where we were very lucky to become her forever home and have dedicated 10% of our net sales to this wonderful rescue foundation. Vegas loves to go for walks and play with other dogs she meets while wearing one of her custom collars and leashes.
