From musician and business owner Rachel Rosen, enter Caninus Collars, which was named in honor of Rosen's 2003 New York City grindcore band CANINUS, which featured two female vocalists, Basil and Budgie, a pair of beloved pitbull terriers. CANINUS had three successful albums, including a split seven-inch single with CATTLE DECAPITATION in 2005. Upon the passing of Basil in 2011 and Budgie in 2016, the band was put on hold, but the ethos remains; our dogs (and cats) make for some of our very best friends, hence Rachel's dive into Caninus Collars.
Having also performed in bands including INDECISION, MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD and more, as well as volunteering at an animal shelter in Jersey City, New Jersey for 12 years doing training/fostering/dog photos, simply put, Rosen is the best candidate to be tasked with the opportunity to create these hard-hitting collars, leashes, lanyards and more. All items are also made in-house, lending an even more personal touch to the pieces.
While we bipedal headbangers have all of the merch options in the world, it is not often that we're able to help our dogs and cats express their love for the heavier genres; a problem that has been eradicated thanks to Caninus, the California small business that is wholeheartedly badass.
