"The love of and from my dog opened my heart as never before about the importance of the animal world. Quite unexpectedly I developed an almost irrational devotion to animals and their protection and humane treatment. It is my truest passion and my dog and all the dogs in my life and, in fact, all dogs everywhere, are supremely important to me as they are such beautiful, loving, loyal, cognitive beings. Together with my best friend, Kristy, who loves dog and animals as I do, we formed LegitiMutt as a labor love and we have had an absolute blast in doing so. Being that we're from and of the fashion world we wanted to bring these great products to market to make every mutt a LegitiMutt!! I hope you like what we've done thus far and hope you'll support us as we bring many more cool products to market," says Neal Hamil.
