Poochie Palace Boutique

The Poochie Palace Boutique is a great place to shop for your pampered pets in Winnemucca, Nevada. Christina is the owner, she is very friendly and is nice to work with. The Poochie Palace sells Belle Pepper Couture collars and jewelry. She has Roxy and Paris, two of the sweetest doggies, and probably almost the most pampered in Winnemucca.

This is the store address if you are ever in the area, stop by and say hi to Christina.

60 W 4th St, Winnemucca, NV

We attended their grand opening. It was such a nice town and all of the people there are so nice.

It was a nice vacation from the hustle and bustle of California.

It was the first time that Pepper was in snow! We probably looked funny, putting our dog on the snow on the side of the road or in a parking lot to get a photo of a little doggie standing on a pile of dirty snow. :)

New Store-Pawparazzi

Hello All,

I had a meeting at Pawparazzi on Tuesday. It was great! Bianca is really nice, and we had a great talk. We talked about Pet Fashion week in New York. How fun would that be to go to that event! I definately want to go. We discussed a Trunk Show in April. I will post when a date is set. I would be selling my dog jewelry, dog collars and dog clothing. She has a lot of really cute items for dogs and cats. This is her store infomation if you are in the area.

Who is Belle Pepper Couture?

The history of Belle Pepper Couture 101.

Back in the old days of 1997, Belle came into my life. I wanted her to have really cool things to wear and there wasn't that much then, the most you could find was a mass produced dog sweater from a major pet supply chain store. Belle had to wait.

We moved back to California a bit after I graduated from Arizona State University. I was always on a look out for great items for dogs, and didn't really see them. In 2005, while working for a major jewelry designer, a dog boutique opened near by. I started to go there and found there was a lot of great stuff, and I could make it better.

I started Belle Pepper Couture, without the name, by designing jewelry for pets. Great! They were selling. Then Pepper came to us. She has been such a great dog! She was named Pepper when we got her, and we thought it was so cute that Belle and Pepper together were a vegetable!
I was searching for a name, and it just hit me, BELLE PEPPER. Then I thought, how about Belle Pepper Couture, high fashion. OH! That's it! Since then, I have designed an entire line of dog jewelry, dog collars, and unique dog clothing items.

Once we launced the website, we had got a great response! We have advertised in Dog Fancy three times. My brand is sold in 3 stores, and 1 more in April. I have had an article written about my business. It has been really a great pleasure doing this business.

Belle Pepper Couture designs were inspired by our dogs Belle, Pepper and now Bambi. We wanted to find unusual things for our dogs, and didn't find what we liked. I think that is how most ideas start. All of the BPC branded items are all very unique and original. I am constantly coming up with new ideas and love meeting people that have dogs, and similar interests as me.

Thank you to all of my family and friends that have supported me!
