About Us



3 Shades of Dog, conceived by Karen Rodriguez, the co-owner and creator of the popular It’s A Lab Thing blog, (www.ItsaLabThing.com) is a luxury lifestyle brand and retailer for modern dogs and their passionate owners with stylish and discriminating taste.  What started as just a search for new beds for her two Labs, turned out to be a bigger challenge than anticipated.  Not one to give up, Karen searched nationwide and internationally and soon decided on a select group of brands that could provide her with not only the bold and chic look that she yearned for but that also would be Eco-friendly, super comfortable, and extremely durable for her dogs and the many fosters that come through the Rodriguez household.  She soon realized that others could possibly benefit from her research and resources, hence  the Three Shades of Dog Brand was born!  

“My love for my two four legged babies extend far beyond just taking care of them.  I want them to enjoy the ultimate comforts that quality materials provide just as you would for any child.  Whether that is making sure they are eating the best food, to ensuring that they are sleeping in comfort on a quality made bed that uses premium materials, I believe that a mother’s desire to give her children the best is not just reserved for parents of humans.”-Karen Rodriguez
