Airline Carriers That Aren’t For The Birds.

Traveling with your small dog that fits under an airplane seat? You no longer have to say good-bye to your little baby as airline crews take your pet and roll them away in a crate.  Gone are the days of worrying if your little one is ok inside the cold or over heated cargo area on the tarmac.
Small dogs are easy to travel with and are known to live longer than large dogs.  A small dog is perfect for someone who travels a lot and hates to leave their dog in a kennel or with strangers. It is not a nice feeling for any pet owner to leave their furry friend behind. We worry about their safety and the stress our pets feel in unfamiliar surroundings, not knowing if their master will return.
Aside from being reluctant to part with your furry friend, many dog owners must travel with their dogs for various reasons.
Many people can’t leave the house without their service dog. These hero dogs can detect a seizure before their owner has one, or help their owner with other challenges like PTSD, impaired vision, etc.
We travel with Mr. Truffle because he represents JCLA at trade shows.  He is the best product tester and always spreads joy wherever we go. He’s also a fabulous model.

As seen in Cesar`sNo matter what your reason may be for Fido flying the friendly skies, major US airlines and other international airlines allow passengers to travel with small dogs that can fit under the airline seat cabin.

Bond Girl Smuggler De-LUXE sideviewSome dog loving flight attendants even allow passengers to take their well-behaved little ones out during the flight, provided it is okay with their neighbors.
It used to be that your only choice for an airline carrier looked like a boxy back pack or plastic crate.  No one was excited to carry these eye sores around.  Today, you can travel with a carrier that looks like a department store handbag.

Dog Bag Bond Girl Smuggler De-LUXEOur Bond Girl Smuggler bags are often mistaken for designer handbags, and they are. Not only do JCLA pet bags look fashionable, and fit under the airline seat, they have purse compartments on both sides so you have everything you need in one carry on!

Bond Girl Smuggler Purse Pet BagTraveling can be hectic. Your pet may refuse to relieve itself before the flight and accidents do happen. All of JCLA’s pet bags have washable, removable linings and cushions so if things don’t exactly go as planned, your bag can bounce back from any mishap. Our flexible tops make the bags easy to fit under the seat in front of you. Your teacup pup can fit into our Bond Girl Smuggler

Smuggler Deluxe.

3 Yorkshire Terrier Dog Carrier Bond Girl Smuggler De-LUXEJCLA pet bags strive to make your day easier.  Our non slip shoulder straps keep the bag from falling off your shoulder when you’re on the go. We organize your belongings with key clips, credit card slots, and cell phone holders. Every aspect of the bag, down to the lovingly sculpted paw feet are made with the intention of putting a smile on your face.
So next time you fly with your fur baby, leave the stress at home and take one of our luxury pet bags for a spin!

Hope 2014 is starting off with a bang for all of you. We had a great run at the Century City Mall over the holidays!

Many of your asked us to please, please stay at the mall. Thank you for showing us so much love. If we had a nickel for every person who said our bags should be on Shark Tank….oh wait, we actually DO have a nickel from all of those people!  Based on watching the inspiring episodes of Shark Tank, I don’t think the sharks “get” high end pet boutique products. It seems that they scoff at most pet products.  We don’t have the stomach for that. This is our passion and we have sacrificed a LOT to see our brand succeed.

We cherish all of our new customers from the Century City mall that made our venture a success. The outdoor location proved to be difficult to sustain logistically.  We would not have survived the cold snap and those long winter hours without the kindness and generosity of our neighbors at Pure DKNY, & Alex & Louis. Our shoe shine neighbor, Jose, taught us the very valuable lesson of caring for yourself so that you can take care of your customers with a smile.  Always bright and positive, Jose runs a flourishing chain of shoe shine stations! We will miss you all, espeically your amazing smiles and hearts!

Immediately after closing the JCLA kiosk in Century City, JCLA packed for Northern CA. Last year’s Pet Expo in Long Beach was a huge success for us, so we continued to follow Shorti Rossi’s Pet expo to San Jose! We were mobbed by rabid dog fashionistas. Our customers had us on our feet from 10am-6pm, non stop! The 8 hour expo felt like 2 hrs and we loved it!

Our next consumer venue will be a one day Pet Expo at the Long Beach Arena. Mark your calendar for Feb 1st 10am-6pm at 300 East Ocean Boulevard, Long Beach, CA. JCLA will be in booth #207!  Free admission, services, and entertainment for dogs and their parents. We will have our full line of new pet bags, sample bags, bows, coats, harnesses, blankets, doggie ugg boots, leopard pet sneakers, swarovski crystal collars, leashes, crystal pet & human apparel, pet lover jewelry, Pet Head shampoo, deer antler chews, and more!

Can’t make it Feb 1st? Shop JCLA’s next 2 events!

Thank you ALL for showing us so much love when we make our public appearances.  You make all the blood, sweat, and tears worthwhile.

Nobody Puts Poodle in the Corner

It’s true. When JCLA’s first Rescue Me totes came out…we didn’t have a poodle version.

Haute Diggity Dog!

To be honest,  we had the misfortune of dirty dancing with a greedy little graphic designer  who stole our poodle artwork. She had to slip it to us between the bars of her jail cell.  We apologize for the delay!

• Non-shedding, easy home maintenance.
• Virtually odor free.
• Hypoallergenic.
• Considered the best therapy dogs for elderly, or physically challenged.
• Great lap dogs.
• Less potty to clean up than most dogs.

Getting Poodle fever? There are many fabulous poodles at your local pounds and rescues.  Coastal Poodle Rescue has a number of adorable poodles in need of a loving home. Check them out!
